Advocacy and Support Communities

We believe many paths lead to wellness.

We recognize that different students have different needs for improving their personal wellbeing and different talents to help improve our campus wellbeing. Our community-based advocacy and support opportunities provide students with an array of professional skill building, service learning, and mentorship experience, while students work to promote health and wellness here at UD. Read the descriptions below to learn more about these wellness-minded advocacy and support communities, and how you can become a part of the great work they do.

 

Collegiate Recovery Community

The CRC is a resource for students in recovery or who have a close friend or family member in recovery. We assist students in developing or maintaining their foundation for long-term and sustained recovery by providing a safe and confidential environment to discuss topics and ideas supportive of recovery. We understand that a college campus can be a challenging environment for someone in recovery. Our goal is to provide a safe space so a person doesn’t have to choose between recovery and their college degree! Some of CRC members choose to present programs about recovery or assist in developing Recovery Ally training, which can be viewed on the Program Request page. Learn more about our community by visiting our website!

Sexual Offense Support Peer Advocates

Launched in 1976, S.O.S. was created through a grassroots collaboration between staff and students to provide victims of sexual misconduct with crisis and advocacy services and to provide the campus with education around these topics. We believe in empowering individuals and groups to respond to survivors of sexual misconduct in ways that are confidential, empathetic, and non-judgmental. We provide victim advocacy and crisis intervention for survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, and stalking via the UD Helpline 24/7/365. View our Program Request page to review the interactive programs provided by our peer advocates about asking for consent, gender-based violence, how to help a victim, and more. Visit our website to learn more about SOS or apply to become a peer advocate today!
