- In the event you are calling to connect with an S.O.S. Victim Advocate related to sexual misconduct, press prompt 1.
- If you are calling to connect with a counselor, press prompt 2.
In case of dire emergency involving the safety of someone, University Police should be contacted.
If calling from on-campus, dial: 911
If calling from off-campus, dial: 302-831-2222
The Center for Counseling and Student Development may then be asked to provide assistance once immediate safety is secured.
