Support Services


The many resources available can sometimes be overwhelming to navigate. Advocates can assist with sorting through your options and help provide improved access to resources. While you have the final decision on how to proceed, advocates can provide informed support in the decision-making process and help you make choices that best suit your personal circumstances. Advocacy is considered a confidential resource, meaning that assistance can be received without placing the University on notice of a specific incident.

The Mānoa Advocate is considered an advocacy resource.


Counselors can provide emotional and mental health support as you process your experiences. Counseling is also considered a confidential resource. This is so you can receive needed assistance while still retaining control of your decision to report an incident to the University and/or law enforcement. Counseling is available on campus at no cost to you as well as through other community organizations.
