What Can I Do to Support a Friend or Colleague?
Not every person who experiences violence will come forward to disclose or share their story. If you start seeing changes in behavior from a friend, colleague, employee, etc. such as difficulty concentrating, frequent absences from classes or work, and/or a decline in academic or work performance, consider whether it might be related to sexual violence, relationship violence and/or stalking. You should encourage your friend to connect with the Campus Victim's Advocate, the Title IX Coordinator, and/or Police Services. AAEO's Intake and Outreach Coordinator is available to provide you with support information and reporting options.
