The Advocacy Center for Sexual Violence

The Advocacy Center for Sexual Violence provides a safe and welcoming environment for students to receive support and advocacy services in the aftermath of sexual violence including, but not limited to, sexual assault, intimate partner violence and/or stalking.

The University at Albany is committed to providing a safe and secure environment in which all its members are treated with dignity and respect. To that end, the University takes the strongest possible stand against sexual violence and sexual harassment in all its forms including sexual assault but also including the use of coercion, intimidation or exploitation of others for sexual purposes. The University is actively engaged in educating its members about these vital issues and in providing timely support and assistance to victims of sexual violence.
