The Office of Victim Assistance (OVA) provides free confidential response services for students, faculty, staff, and their significant others who experience harmful or disruptive life events.
We assist in potentially traumatic situations
involving physical assault and hazing, bias-motivated incidents, gender violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, stalking, death, discrimination and harassment, and serious accidents.
We provide information, support, and short-term counseling
. We can talk about academic or work questions, medical questions, reporting and other questions.
In addition to these response services, we provide gender violence prevention and education.
