Oregon State University to Open a New Center to Support Victims of Sexual Violence

osu-tagOregon State University has announced the establishment of the Advocacy Center for Survivors of Violence on campus. The new center will be housed in the Student Health Services Building, where there are nurses on duty who have been trained in dealing with victims of sexual assault.

Susie Brubaker-Cole, vice provost for student affairs at Oregon State, stated that “it is critical that we provide a single, central resource that is networked to the various offices and support functions. This will help faculty and staff make referrals and will help survivors feel supported in choosing what resources they need in the short or long term.”

While the center is primarily for students, OSU faculty and staff survivors can also receive support, stabilization and referral from the center. Additionally, the center will provide resources such as books, movies, articles, and other media with information about sexual violence.
