Where to Get Help and Resources
Safe@Weber Advocacy Services:
We know that experiencing harassment or violence can have a negative impact on your academic success and/or safety on campus, regardless of when it happened, where it occurred, or who perpetrated it. We want to help you access resources that can lead to healing and continued success at Weber State University.
Anyone at Weber State who is a victim/survivor or has experienced discrimination, harassment or violence can access Advocacy Services through Safe@Weber. Advocacy Services are available to everyone, inclusive of sex, gender identity/expression, and sexual orientation.
The Women's Center staff are not required to report sexual misconduct to the Office of Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity unless the victim/survivor wants our support in reporting to the institution. We are Campus Security Authorities, and we do have to share some limited information with the Weber State Police about crimes committed on campus. Come talk to us so we can tell you more.
Advocacy Services include:
- Developing a safety plan by identifying resources and strengths, and assistance with interim measures such as no contact directives and class/housing changes, etc.
- Assistance with reporting sexual misconduct (sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, stalking) to the WSU Office for Affirmative Action & Equal Opportunity (Title IX coordinators), and reporting crimes to Weber State Police Department.
- Support such as advocacy during institutional and law enforcement investigations (including presence during interviews and court appearances), assistance with institutional petitions, assistance with civil orders such as domestic/dating violence protective orders and stalking injunctions, and referrals to counseling, medical services, legal and financial resources, and distribution of the Safe@Weber Emergency Survivor Fund.
Safe@Weber Advocacy Services is located within the Women’s Center (Shepherd Union 323), and the Advocate any meet you anywhere you’re comfortable on campus. Contact the Safe@Weber Advocates at 801-626-6090 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also come by the Women’s Center to set up an appointment with the front desk reception.
If you want to report a crime that happened on campus, including sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking, you may do so anonymously to the Weber State Police Department at their "Report a Clery Act Crime" form. You can include your name and contact information as a victim/survivor but are not obligated to do so. The Safe@Weber Advocate can assist in reporting to police.
If you want to report discrimination or harassment prohibited under WSU Policies & Procedures 3-32 "Discrimination & Harassment," you may do so by contacting the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity (AAEO). Other policies relevant to reporting are PPM 6-22 (Student Code) and PPM 5-36a (Safety, Response, and Reporting). The Safe@Weber Advocate can assist in reporting violations of these policies to the AA/EO office.
