One of the things I've been doing as an intern for the Campus Safety Project is advocacy training with Family Crisis Services.

Support for Victims

If you, or someone you know, has been the victim of sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, stalking or sexual harassment, the University of Southern Maine wants to ensure that you get the information and support that you need.  Confidential community advocates are available 24 hours a day via the link to the right.  On campus, immediate response is available from Campus Police (dial 911 from a campus phone, or 780-5211), and confidential support can be found through University Health and Counseling.  Staff in student life, the diversity centers, athletics, residence life, student success and your academic programs are also here to support you and connect you with resources in the Dean of Students office.
