Survivor Advocacy Program
Meet with an advocate to talk about your options related to reporting, academic support/accommodations, safety planning, orders of protection/no-contact orders, and any other advocacy questions or needs you might have.
Emergency Contraception and STI Testing
Emergency contraception and STI testing are available through Campus Health. *Campus Health medical staff are mandatory reporters and are required to report to the university any disclosed incidents of sexual or gender-based violence that occur on campus or between UA students.
Medical Forensic Exams
Contact the Survivor Advocacy Program or SACASA for information related to evidence collection. Currently, students can receive a medical forensic exam at either Tucson Medical Center or Banner University Medical Center. Evidence should be collected ASAP after an assault, preferably within 72 hours and can be collected up to 120 hours after the assault.
Is my appointment confidential?
Oasis is a confidential space on campus. We are not required to report details of gender-based violence to the university or to law enforcement.
While all interactions with CAPS and Oasis are confidential, there are certain limitations where we would have to break confidentiality:
- any abuse to children or to the elderly
- immediate and serious danger to self or to others
- court order issued by a judge
Oasis is also required to submit non-identifying data to UAPD related to violence that occurs on campus (no names or details are provided). UAPD uses this data for annual statistical reporting purposes.
Is what I'm feeling normal?
Experiencing trauma can impact all aspects of your emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing. It's normal to feel a range of physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral reactions both during and after a trauma. For more information on symptoms and reactions to trauma, please see the Oasis Resources page. [LINK COMING SOON]
