Confidential Advocacy from the Office of Sexual Violence Prevention & Advocacy
The Office of Sexual Violence Prevention and Advocacy maintains a CONFIDENTIAL, 24/7 phone line (860-460-9194) to offer, support, information, and resources. This phone line is available all the time to assist students who have experienced sexual misconduct, stalking or intimate partner violence.

She is a confidential resource and is typically available year-round to assist students who have experienced sexual misconduct, stalking or intimate partner violence. She also serves as a resource for friends of victim-survivors, as well as for faculty and staff supporting students, and she works with the Coordinated Community Response Team to ensure students have access to the information and support they need and want.
The director of sexual violence prevention and advocacy offers assistance with the following:
