After an assault, a victim/survivor may benefit from having an advocate support them as they process their experience. This may include counseling, deciding whether to make a formal report to the police or the UWM administration, and/or having someone beside you during any medical or investigative interviews.
Disclosing information to a Victim Advocate will not lead to a Title IX investigation, unless explicitly requested. Under Wisconsin law, communications between a victim and a victim advocate are privileged.
