To reach a Campus Advocate, please call or text our hotline at (909) 905-0035.
The CARES Campus Advocates are a confidential resource who provide direct support to students who have experienced harm related to sexual violence. They can also offer support to the support systems of those who have experienced harm. Campus Advocates have completed extensive training through the CARES Office and various community partners to be adequately prepared to support folks who have experienced harm.
*Campus Advocates are available on the hotline 24/7 while classes are in session. Campus Advocates are not available during any academic breaks, such as Fall Break, Winter Break, and Summer Break. Students can still receive support from other campus resources or community resources during school closures. For additional resources, please visit the "Confidential Resources" section of the Title IX page.
What type of support can the Campus Advocates offer?
Explain all the Reporting Options at Pomona College
Campus Advocates can explain the Title IX process to students and share the ways in which the Title IX Coordinator can offer support, with or without a formal report.
Explain all the Pomona College Campus Resources
Campus advocates can explain the available resources at Pomona College. These resources and support options can include interim support measures, counseling at Monsour Counseling & Psychological Services (MCAPS), Student Health Services, 7C Health app, and the counseling reimbursement option.
Connect Students with Community Organizations
Campus Advocates are available to support students with the Pomona College resources and reporting options. If a student would like to discuss reporting to local law enforcement or discuss other support resources, the Campus Advocates can connect students to the community advocates at Project Sister Family Services.
Campus Advocates can accompany students who experienced sexual violence to meetings, such as Title IX intake meetings. Campus Advocates can also walk students to various support offices on Pomona College’s campus. If students would like support at off-campus meetings or proceedings, they will need to connect with a community advocate through Project Sister Family Services.
Campus Advocates can offer immediate crisis intervention through the 24/7* hotline or during drop-in hours at the Heart Center. Crisis intervention helps ensure that students feel safe in that moment. Although Campus Advocates can offer immediate support, they are not trained therapists and cannot offer ongoing intervention.
Let’s meet the Campus Advocates for the 2023-2024 academic year!
