The Victim Survivor Advocacy program at the University of Utah is a free, confidential, and trauma-informed service for students, faculty and staff who have experienced relationship, dating, sexual, and family violence (e.g.., rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and stalking, dating and domestic violence).
This program provides comprehensive case management and support services to victims and survivors as they access and navigate any resources, processes, and/or services that they feel would be relevant and helpful to them. Empowering clients to make informed decisions around their healing and justice is foundational to this program. 

The Peer Advocacy Liaisons program supports the ongoing outreach, community education, and awareness-raising about available resources for survivors and how to best support individuals who have disclosed experiences of violence. Up to three Peer Advocacy Liaisons will be hired for the 2024-25 Academic Year.

  2. educate students, faculty, and staff about available support services on campus
  3. assist in the development of awareness campaigns (e.g., Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Sexual Assault Awareness Month)
  4. promote a culture of empathy and understanding for survivors of violence on campus
  5. serve as a representative of the VSA program among their peers & college
  6. provide insight about the experiences of the student body & campus climate to the VSA staff


Peer Advocacy Liaisons are considered part-time staff who will be compensated at $14/hour
