TCU Victim Advocate Program

Founded in 1996, the Texas Christian University Victim Advocate Program provides campus and community resources for students who are victims. This includes, but is not limited to: assault, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual harassment, stalking, bullying, sexual assault, and prior assault. The program is designed to assist individuals in the recovery process by providing information, support and resources. The advocate’s goal is to empower and support the victim. A victim is strongly encouraged to report the offense to the TCU Police (on-campus crime) or the Fort Worth Police if the incident occurred off-campus. While it is the objective of TCU officials that perpetrators of crime be arrested and prosecuted, the University will honor choices made by individual victims of crime, when at all possible. Individuals victimized by a crime are encouraged to use the resources and support provided by the TCU Victim Advocate Program. For more information about this program, call Campus Life – Dean’s Office 817-257-7926 or stop by the Campus Life Dean’s Office in Sadler Hall room 2006.

Sexual misconduct is a serious issue and any allegation of misconduct should be shared with a University Official.  Please review the following brochure (sexual misconduct brochure) which provides information regarding resources and how to report sexual misconduct incidents.
