CARE Advocates402.472.3553 – Confidential – Supportive
You will be listened to, supported and respected.
We are a confidential, supportive resource for victims/survivors of interpersonal violence and other crimes.
Providing advocacy and support for students, faculty and staff who have experienced sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, stalking, harassment and other crimes, our advocates are here to help you navigate campus and community resources.
With an advocate, you will be able to tell your story confidentially. You will be supported in your decision to report or not to report to police, Institutional Equity and Compliance (Title IX) or neither—the choice is yours.
Call 402.472.3553 to speak to an advocate.
In an emergency, call 911 or University Police at 402.472.2222.
CARE advocates are available during university business hours, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m and 5 p.m.
We follow university closures for holidays and inclement weather.
Calling (402) 472-3553 after hours will still connect you with help. You can be transferred to a confidential, licensed counselor, or you may leave a voicemail for a CARE Advocate to return the next business day.
