Surviving interpersonal violence and reaching out for help takes tremendous courage and strength. Whether you have been recently assaulted, know someone who has been affected by abuse, or are healing from past trauma, staff members at RSVP, located within the University Health Center, are here to support you. We can act as a personal coordinator/liaison (advocate) between you and law enforcement, medical personnel, the University, mental health care professionals, and other agencies or services.

Services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL.
We help ensure that you get the information and support you need, that you are listened to, and that you are treated with the sensitivity and respect every victim/survivor deserves.

What happened to you was not your fault. We believe you and are here to help.
