What is a Victim Advocate?

Victim Advocates are trained to support victims of any incident or crime. They offer emotional support, victims’ rights information, help in finding needed resources, and assistance in navigating and completing any processes related to the incident. Advocates frequently accompany victims through the criminal justice proceedings. Advocates work with other organizations, such as criminal justice or social service agencies, to get help or information for the victims they serve. The FGCU Victim Advocate provides free and confidential support to any student who has been victimized.

  • Emotional support
  • Campus and community resources and referrals
  • Information on victimization
