Interpersonal Violence Prevention and Advocacy Coordinator

The Interpersonal Violence Prevention and Advocacy Coordinator (IVPAC) is a trauma-informed staff member whose responsibility is to provide confidential support and information for students about the medical, academic and legal options or needs they may have following a sexual assault. With a focus on empowering the survivor to make their own decisions, the IVPAC can facilitate referrals, accompany survivors to medical treatment, answer questions about legal options and ensure appropriate follow-up and support. They also connect survivors with resources that can minimize the impact an assault may have on a student's academic career.
