Where To Get Help
Safe@Weber Advocacy Services
We know that experiencing harassment or violence can have a negative impact on your academic success and/or safety on campus, regardless of when it happened, where it occurred, or who perpetrated it. We want to help you access resources that can lead to healing and continued success at Weber State University.
Safe@Weber Advocacy Services provides confidential support for survivors needing help in any aspect of life impacted by sexual assault, sexual harassment, domestic or dating violence, and stalking. Our certified and trauma-informed advocates will listen to you, believe you, and guide you through your options. Whatever you choose to do next, we strive to ensure you feel safe and supported.
Anyone at Weber State who is a victim/survivor or has experienced discrimination, harassment, or violence can access Advocacy Services through Safe@Weber. Advocacy Services are available to everyone, inclusive of sex, gender identity/expression, and sexual orientation.
The Women's Center staff is not required to report discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct to the Office of Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity unless the victim/survivor wants our support in reporting to the institution. We are Campus Security Authorities and we do have to share some limited information with the Weber State Police about crimes committed on campus. Come talk to us so we can tell you more!
Advocacy Services include:
- Developing a safety plan by identifying resources and strengths and assistance with supportive measures such as no-contact directives and class/housing changes, etc.
- Assistance with reporting sexual misconduct (sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, stalking) to the WSU Office for Affirmative Action & Equal Opportunity (Title IX coordinators) and reporting crimes to Weber State Police Department or another law enforcement agency.
- Support such as advocacy during institutional and law enforcement investigations (including presence during interviews and court appearances), assistance with institutional petitions, assistance with civil orders such as domestic/dating violence protective orders and stalking injunctions and referrals to counseling, medical services, legal and financial resources and distribution of the Safe@Weber Emergency Survivor Fund.
