Victim Advocate Services Available

Indiana State University provides confidential support and advocacy to survivors of sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking through the Victim Advocate program. Victim Advocates are trained to provide connections to resources and assistance in understanding options. Advocates are non-judgmental, survivor-focused, and trauma informed. We also recognize that anyone regardless of their sex, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race ethnicity, religious identity, veteran status, age, national origin, and/or disability can experience sexual violence, relationship violence, or stalking.

If you (or someone you know) are the victim of sexual assault, another sex offense, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking (even if you are not certain), or another crime, you can call the Indiana State Victim Advocate at 812-243-7272 at any time 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Some recent campus information provided the Office of the Dean of Students’ phone number (812-237-3829) as a number to call for advocacy. While the lead victim advocate works within the Dean of Students’ area, no other member of the Office of the Dean of Students’ staff are confidential. Confidential resources include the Victim Advocates and members of the Student Counseling Center staff. All other faculty and staff at Indiana State University are mandatory reporters for issues related to sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking. To receive confidential assistance, call the on-call victim advocate at 812-243-7272.
