Seek help for sexual violence

The Office for Sexual Violence Prevention and Victim Advocacy provides support to students who are impacted by sexual assault, harassment, discrimination, relationship violence, stalking, or other threats to personal safety on the Indiana University campus.

While our goal is to prevent sexual violence, we also have staff who provide confidential victim advocacy and support to IU Bloomington students.

Confidential Victim Advocates

Confidential Victim Advocates are specially trained advocates who help students who have experienced sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, rape, sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence, or stalking. Your Confidential Victim Advocate can help address any safety, academic, or other university-related concerns and assist you in making a report, if you choose.

If you would like to speak with a Confidential Victim Advocate, call 812-856-2469 or email cva@indiana.edu.

Know about consent

Sex without consent is sexual assault. Know how to identify sexual assault, sexual misconduct, and consent with Indiana University’s Sexual Misconduct Policy and definitions.
