Resources for victims of sexual violence available; victim advocates are now confidential

Advocacy Services is a support resource for all students, faculty and staff at Marquette.

A university sexual violence victim advocate is available to provide immediate and ongoing support and assistance for victims of sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking or sexual harassment. The advocates are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are just a phone call or an email away.

As of Friday, Aug. 14, Marquette’s Campus Victim Advocates are a confidential resource, which means they will not report what you share with them to the Title IX coordinator.

Advocates are available to provide support remotely and can be reached anytime (available 24/7) at (414) 288-5244 or (emails responded to during business hours). Campus advocates are available to accompany students to the hospital if requested.  

Advocacy Services provide the following services: 

  • Referrals to university community support and counseling services. 
  • Accompany a victim to the hospital or other medical providers. 
  • Assistance with housing, academic and other concerns. 
  • Assist in creating a safety plan, including helping to obtain a restraining order or university Stay Away Directive. 
  • Information about the university’s Title IX policy, reporting and complaint process. 
  • Information about and assistance with filing a criminal complaint with the police or taking other legal action.  
  • Assistance and support throughout the criminal justice or university complaint process including escorts to all necessary appointments and court proceedings. 

Advocacy Services will provide support and assistance to victims regardless of whether the victim chooses to file a formal report with law enforcement or pursue a complaint through the university’s Title IX complaint process.  

Victims will remain in control of all decisions that are made about their healing process and courses of action.
