Victim Support Services
Victim Support Services is a specialized function within the Office of Case Management & Victim Support Services. Our aim is to empower students who are victims and survivors of crime to make informed decisions in their recovery process. We also assist friends, faculty/staff, parents and loved ones.
The services we provide are student-centered and focus on promoting student safety and well-being. Services include: emergency housing, housing reassignment, academic assistance, health and counseling referral, legal referral and advocacy (Office of Student Conduct, civil court, criminal court), and ongoing support throughout the recovery process.
We understand that students choose to seek help from a variety of campus departments. Our role is to provide a web of support in helping students coordinate information and navigate between different departmental support services. Thus, we collaborates with various departments at Tulane University including:
A Note On Confidentiality
Tulane University recognizes that confidentiality is particularly important to victims of crime and survivors of sexual assault. As a student at Tulane University you have several options in which to report an incident. These options fall into three categories; Confidential, Private and Anonymous. It is important for you to understand the differences between these categories.
Tulane University must adhere to legal mandates such as Title IX, medical reporting laws, and the Jeanne Clery Campus Security Act. For example, Tulane University is required to make an annual report documenting the occurrences of violent crimes on campus, including sexual assault. However, this report does not include any information identifying the individuals (including the victims) linked to these crimes.
