OSMRC is not a confidential resource. Connecting individuals with confidential, supportive resources is among our primary concerns.
An advocate can confidentially answer questions, provide information about options, and help with safety planning. Advocates can also serve as an Advisor to a Complainant and be present for any meetings related to a university resolution process or criminal complaint.
