Sexual Violence Support and Advocacy Services

The University at Albany has a range of services designed to support survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence.

Albany County Crime Victim & Sexual Violence Center (CVSVC)

UAlbany is partnering with the Albany County CVSVC to provide confidential services to victims of sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, and other gender-based violence on college campuses, as part of the University’s plan to provide enhanced support and prevention services for students. If you would like to speak with the CVSVC advocate, please call (518) 442-CARE (2273) and identify yourself as a UAlbany student.

Students can receive confidential assistance over the phone or in person about their rights, counseling, reporting, on-campus accommodations, and more. Students are entitled to have an advocate or advisor with them when meeting with school personnel or law enforcement.

On Campus
Tuesdays & Wednesdays, 1-4pm

CVSVC is on campus on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons in the Health and Counseling Services Building on the ground level of Dutch Quad.

 

Counseling and Psychological Services

If you or someone you care about is experiencing mental health difficulties, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) continues to be a confidential resource. You can call CAPS 24/7 at 518-442-5800 to talk to a mental health professional and can schedule an appointment using their online scheduling portal.

 

Title IX Coordinator

The University at Albany recognizes that, in order to maintain a healthy, safe and vibrant living and learning community, it must continue to foster an environment free from gender inequality and sexual violence.

The Director of Equity & Compliance and Title IX Coordinator is charged with managing the University's response to reports of discrimination, which includes report of sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking and sexual exploitation. The Title IX Coordinator provides private--but not confidential-- services aimed at ensuring the University responds promptly and effectively stops problem behavior, prevents its recurrence and remedies its effects.
