A Lehigh University Advocate is a professional staff member at Lehigh University specially trained in the area of gender violence who provides confidential crisis and options to counseling to students.  Any student who has a concern regarding gender violence may contact an Advocate.  Advocates can be helpful to students who have recently been assaulted or students who have had past experiences and are ready to talk about their concerns.


An Advocate will listen and provide support, guidance and options.  The Advocate will explain all of those options and help the students make the right decisions for their situation.  Advocates are good at listening to the needs of each particular student and adjusting their role to those needs.


In the past, Advocates have accompanied students to the hospital or the Lehigh University Health and Wellness Center, helped schedule counseling appointments and assisting with navigating college life after an assault including meeting with the Office of Student Conduct, housing changes and class changes.  Each student needs different assistance after an assault.
