Report to Confidential Support

We encourage survivors of sexual assault, rape, dating/domestic violence, and stalking (collectively sexual misconduct) to talk with someone about what happened, discuss reporting options, and to help connect you with support services. 

SJSU's Confidential Survivor Advocate provides confidential individual and group sessions for people impacted by sexual violence, intimate partner violence, stalking & harassment. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 408-924-5021 or email survivoradvocate@sjsu.edu.

SJSU’s Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) is a confidential resource - you can discuss what happened without notifying the Title IX and Gender Equity Office or law enforcement. Please visit sjsu.edu/counseling for more information regarding CAPS' services.

The YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley is a non-profit organization that can provide confidential support to survivors of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and human trafficking.
