Resources of the Women's Center
Your responsibilities are not to
diagnose or provide therapy; it is the development of a compassionate and
forthright conversation that ultimately helps a student in trouble find
understanding, support, and the proper therapeutic resources.
The Women’s Center’s mission is to be advocates for the political, social and
economic gains of all people by eradicating gender-based inequalities in a
supportive atmosphere that encourages and facilitates the evolution and
development of personal and academic potentials.
The Women’s Center recognizes that gender inequalities are deeply connected to
other areas of disenfranchisement and oppression in our society, including
violence. Therefore, the programs and services strive to value and promote
respect for all differences. This means
that women and men and people of all races, cultures, sexual orientations and
abilities are welcome in the Women’s Center.
The VictimAdvocacy Program provides confidential crisis intervention services to the
University of North Florida community. The primary role of victim advocacy is
to intervene on behalf of the victim and assist the individual in surviving the
experience. This includes representing
the victim’s legitimate interests regarding any problem or concern resulting
from the victimization.
