The role of the Victim Advocate is to provide nonjudgmental, private support to student survivors of gender-based violence, which plays a critical role in the healing process of a victim/survivor. Talking with our Victim Advocate is private and DOES NOT start a formal misconduct or criminal process, unless you want to access those options.
Victim Advocacy services are still available to students. Please call (616)-331-2742 or e-mail Rachel Dziabuda directly at email@example.com
All violence prevention programs are designed to center the voices and experiences of victim/survivors and are created to be trauma-informed and promote a culture of healing and support. We offer programs throughout the year and also take workshop requests for pre-existing programs or for a customized workshop.
For all general questions about violence prevention and education programs, reach out to:

Fostering Laker Success (FLS), is a grant funded effort that works to provide a supportive network to program participants to ensure their success on and off campus. Laker participants will have access to key resources that can help them succeed academically, professionally and develop fundamental life skills. FLS has joined the statewide college/university initiative to increase college graduation rates among youth who have experienced foster care.
