What Can You Expect When Speaking with an OU Advocate?
When calling or meeting with OU Advocates you should expect empathy, compassion, and support. We will listen to you and believe you. When speaking with OU Advocates, you can share as much or as little information as you would like. We will help you navigate the various options for resources and referrals.
Sometimes we have an initial phone call for only general information and questions, but more often, the phone call leads to an in-person meeting. Depending on the call, the in-person meeting will typically take place in the Gender + Equality Center in a private room. Other times, we can meet an individual at a police station, hospital, or rape crisis center.
We also provide long-term advocacy. We can go with you to meetings at the Sexual Misconduct Office, with police officers or detectives, and to hearings at the courthouse. We want to support you and help navigate the various procedures involved.
