Confidential Advocates

Confidential Advocates

If you have experienced a sexual assault, please go to the University’s sexual assault resources page or call our Counseling Line at 434-982-2252. The Sexual Assault Resource Agency, a non-profit agency in Charlottesville also offers emergency services and information, 24 hours a day.

Confidential Employees and Confidential Advocates at the Women's Center

All of the counselors at the Women's Center are Confidential Employees. This means that if a student comes to the Center seeking support after experiencing sexual assault, these employees are not required to share information about the student or event with the Title IX office.

Most of the programs and administrative staff are Responsible Employees, but there are a few select members of our staff that act as Confidential Advocates. Confidential Advocates are employees that are granted the same status as a Confidential Employee when they are in the Women's Center. These members of our staff work with programs closely related to survivor support and advocacy. For more information on our confidential advocates, please email us at or call us at (434) 982-2361.
