Support Students by Becoming a Confidential Advocate

Health Promotion and Wellness is recruiting three new Confidential Advocates (CAs) for the 2022–23 school year! CAs are trained to respond to and support survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence.

Advocates value and understand diverse perspectives, experiences, and identities. CAs do not tell students what to do. Instead, they offer nonjudgmental support and help students understand their options. In addition, they provide students with overall assistance, support, information, and follow-up regarding any form of sexual and interpersonal violence as outlined in the Lewis & Clark Sexual Misconduct Policy.

Working closely with the Office of Health Promotion and Wellness (HPW), the CA program is looking to add three more advocates for the 2022–23 school year. These individuals can be faculty or staff and work on any campus: CAS, GSEC, or Law.

Understanding the vital role this support offers students, each advocate will be provided a $500 stipend for the 2022–23 year. Note that due to union rules, these stipends can only be provided for those not part of the union.

Additionally, since all advocates must undergo a 40-hour training, the HPW office will cover the cost of this training for new advocates. To learn more about this program and current CAs, please visit the Confidential Advocates website.

Please feel free to share this message with other listservs, colleagues, and staff! If you want to become a CA or are interested in hearing more, please reach out to Michelle Callahan at
