The Advocates are trained members of the Bucknell community whose primary responsibility is to provide information to student survivors regarding the medical, academic and legal options or needs a student may have following a sexual assault. With a focus on empowering the survivor to make his or her own decisions, the Advocates help to facilitate referrals, accompany survivors to medical treatment, answer questions about legal and judicial options, and help to ensure appropriate follow-up and support. They also assist survivors in connecting with resources that can help minimize the impact an assault may have on a student's academic career.
On call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
The Advocates are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the academic year to help students connect with helpful resources both on and off campus. If you or a friend would like to speak with an Advocate, call: 570-850-6115 (cell phone). Please note that only female advocates can be reached at this cell phone number. You may request to speak with a male advocate by calling 570-850-6115 or by contacting Public Safety at 570-577-3333.
The Advocate program is designed to provide a confidential resource for students in need. Speaking with an Advocate is not the same as filing an official report with the University or local law enforcement.
