Covid-19 has impacted our community in many ways. We are all coping with escalating stressors, isolation, grief, and disconnection from regular sources of support and stability. A particular concern during this time is for students who may be social distancing in a home, apartment, or dorm with an abusive partner or caregiver. This creates additional concerns about safety and resources while survivors are isolated from school, work, and other sources of connection and support.

Join the Advocacy Center for an online conversation about:

  • The impacts of COVID-19 on relationship violence

  • Available services on and off campus and how the Advocacy Center is supporting survivors during this time

  • Strategies to support someone you are worried about

  • Live Q&A
