Services


All Center for Student Wellness advocacy support services are CONFIDENTIAL and free, and are available to the entire University of Utah community.


 

The Center for Student Wellness provides advocacy services for survivors of sexual assault or interpersonal violence. Students have the right to access free, confidential support services in order to educate them about their options, and assist them through the processes following experiencing interpersonal violence. This typically includes but is not limited to providing information and support so that the student can make informed decisions based on what feels acceptable to them. Students are entirely in control of advocate’s level of involvement. Additionally, our goals include simplifying processes that a survivor chooses to participate in.
