Victim Advocate Program

The Victim Advocate Program serves as a confidential resource and support service for anyone in the University community who has experienced violence, trauma, and harm. This includes students and employees who were victimized at any time and at any location, as well as any other person victimized by a member of the FAMU community. Victimizations include sexual battery, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, harassment, relationship violence, discrimination, hate crimes, loss of a loved one to homicide, gun violence, etc.


While the Victim Advocate Program is confidential and exempt from Title IX reporting requirements, assistance can be provided in reporting to Title IX and/or law enforcement if desired. Identifying information is not released to third parties without your permission.
The advocate is still bound by Florida laws regarding mandatory reporting of abuse of vulnerable populations. If you are under the age of 18, a report may have to be filed with the state.
