Advocacy on Campus

IU Southeast and the Center for Women and Families (CWF) have collaborated for several years on programs to prevent sexual misconduct on campus. CWF has conducted on-campus educational programs for students at IU Southeast and provides professional training for students and staff. IU Southeast wants to ensure the campus community has the supports in place to help assist anyone who has been a victim of sexual misconduct.

The CWF offers advocacy services on IU Southeast campus beginning Fall 2020. A CWF advocate is available to provide (confidential) trauma informed support to individuals affected by intimate partner violence and sexual assault - regardless of race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, religion, age, disability, immigration status, or language proficiency.

You can access services on campus by visiting the lower level of University Center South, across from the Campus Life Office.
