HawkReach Student Advocate
What Can the Student Advocate Do for Students?
The Student Advocate is survivor-driven, in other words, we will not make decisions for the survivor, but will provide the survivor with all options available to them. Once the survivor has determined what the best plan is for them, we will assist them to completion. The Student Advocate will work with them as much, or as little, as is determined necessary and/or desired by the survivor. Because each survivor will have unique needs, the Student Advocate is prepared to work with each survivor on an individual basis and take all reasonable action to help the survivor get the assistance they need.
The Student Advocate is prepared to advocate for the survivor in the following areas (this is not a complete list):
- Medical Assistance
- Housing Needs or Relocation
- Legal Assistance
- Campus Judicial Systems
- Academic Concerns
All services are free and confidential.
