Join us to learn this and more from Survive Institute, February 7, 2017, from 6:30pm-8:00pm in the Cintas Center Banquet Room.

Xavier University students, faculty & staff are free!

As the positive impact of Xavier’s efforts to address the pervasive issue of campus gender-based violence grows, more students are seeking confidential advocacy and support services. To meet this need, Xavier is expanding our community partnership with Women Helping Women beginning on January 9th, 2017. In addition to the Center for Diversity and Inclusion’s Advocacy and Prevention Coordinator, an advocate from Women Helping Women will be on campus on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30am-5pm to assist in providing confidential support and advocacy services to students of all gender identities and sexual orientations. An advocate can be reached Monday-Friday 8:30am-5pm on the Campus Advocacy Helpline at (513) 904-9013. After-hour and weekend support for students will continue to be provided by Women Helping Women’s 24/7 Crisis Line at (513) 381-5610. The increasing use of Xavier’s advocacy services reflects the University’s ongoing commitment to effectively addressing gender-based violence to create a community where resources are visible and accessible, and students experiencing gender-based violence are empowered to reach out for support.
