The Advocacy and Prevention Coordinator provides affirming, empowering, and confidential support for Xavier students who have experienced or are experiencing gender-based violence, including:
- Sexual Assault
- Partner Violence
- Gender Discrimination
Advocates bring a non-judgmental, caring approach to exploring all options, rights, and resources.
It is always the survivor’s decision to pursue any of the available resources or to report an incident to the police or the university. An advocate is here to support the survivor’s decisions.
The Advocacy and Prevention Coordinator recognizes that students of all identities may experience gender-based violence and need access to advocacy and support services. The Advocacy and Prevention Coordinator is dedicated to serving all XU student survivors regardless of gender, class, race, ethnicity, ability, religion/spirituality, cultural identity, immigrant or refugee status, gender identity, and sexual orientation.
An advocate is available Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:00pm. If you would like to speak to an advocate by phone or meet in person, call the campus advocacy helpline at 513-904-9013. An advocate will make every effort to meet at the earliest convenience of the person seeking support.
For after hours assistance contact Women Helping Women’s 24 Crisis Line at 513-381-5610. Women Helping Women provides confidential support and advocacy to survivors of all identities and works in partnership with Xavier’s Advocacy and Prevention Coordinator.
