Victim Advocacy and Support

"ONE IS TOO MANY"

The Victim Outreach Coordinator supports and advocates for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and related cases. The university treats the Victim Outreach Coordinator as a confidential reporting option. Survivors can visit with a Victim Outreach Coordinator to learn about resources available on and off-campus. As well as discuss their reporting options and support through the case process. It is important to note that while the Victim Outreach Coordinator is considered to be a confidential reporter they are required to report to the TAMUC University Police Department/Title IX for Clery data collection purposes. The data reported by the Victim Outreach Coordinator will be reported without providing personally identifiable information and will not include the survivor's name. The information shared about an incident however will include the following information such as the nature of the crime, the location of the crime, the date and time the crime occurred, the date-time the person reported it to the CSA.

Clery Act: The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), a consumer protection law passed in 1990, requires all colleges and universities that receive federal funding to share information about crime on campus and their efforts to improve campus safety. Additionally, the law requires institutions to inform the public of crime in or around campus. This information is made publicly accessible through the institution's annual security report.


Mission: The Victim Advocacy and Support office is committed to supporting survivors who have been impacted by violence. Our goal is to help cultivate a space in which survivors feel heard and supported. Our mission is to cultivate a safe environment at Texas A&M University-Commerce where all students can thrive and be successful.
