Welcome to the Victim Advocate Program!

If you or someone you care about has been the victim of a crime…

…you may need to talk with someone about your options. It is not uncommon to experience a broad range of emotions including fear, confusion, anger, guilt, frustration, and tremendous sense of loss. These are all NORMAL reactions to what has happened.

You do not have to go through this alone…

confidential advocate is on call twenty-four hours a day to respond to FSU students, faculty, and staff who are victimized anywhere or at any time, as well as any other person who is victimized on our campus, at an FSU sponsored event, or by an FSU community member.

Services offered include emotional support, instructor notification, referrals, crisis intervention and assistance in student conduct, legal and medical matters.

Confidential support is available…

Federal law (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972) requires FSU to ensure an educational environment free from sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence. If an employee at FSU becomes aware of an incident, they must report to the Title IX Coordinator. However, the Victim Advocate Program is confidential and is therefore exempt from the reporting requirement, but can help file a report upon request.
