Violence Advocacy Services
- Center for Victim Advocacy provides free and confidential services to USF students, faculty, and staff who have experienced crime, violence, or abuse, on or off campus. We serve all gender identities and sexual orientations.
- The role of an advocate is to provide support, explore options, and assist the client with any advocacy needs they may have. Immediate appointments are available via Microsoft Teams for individuals with urgent advocacy needs. These needs may include serious safety concerns, sexual violence within the last 120 hours, or immediate assistance with filing a report.
Violence Prevention trainings and workshops will all be held online via Microsoft Teams. We host ongoing open discussions, workshops and trainings for the entire USF community! Check out our calendar of events here.
