Victim advocate campus resource
The role of the Victim Advocate is to provide nonjudgmental, confidential support to student victim/survivors of gender-based violence, which plays a critical role in the healing process of a victim/survivor. Talking with our Victim Advocate is confidential and DOES NOT start a formal misconduct or criminal process, unless you want to access those options.
Victim Advocacy services are available to all students.
Food & basic needs resource
Replenish is an on campus, GVSU food resource, developed to support students. If you have questions about accessing Replenish please contact us at 331-STOR (7867). Hours of operation are M-F 12-5, but hours may vary during COVID-19 impacts. Replenish is located on the lower level of Kirkhof in room 074.
Fostering Laker Success
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.
Violence Prevention Education
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.
The Gayle R. Davis Center for Women and Gender Equity’s mission is to create meaningful learning about gender and to advocate for gender justice through the education, engagement, and empowerment of students and the greater GVSU community.
The Gayle R. Davis Center for Women and Gender Equity envisions a world where gender justice is a reality and all forms of oppression are eradicated. As such, we offer the most comprehensive and progressive programs, services, and initiatives.
