UH Confidential Advocate

The UH Confidential Advocates provide confidential advocacy services and case management to victims* of sex discrimination and gender-based violence (including sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, dating, and domestic violence, stalking, sexual exploitation, and sexual assault) who are involved in the University system on O‘ahu.

UH Advocates cannot keep cases confidential if the responding party (alleged perpetrator, offender, or abuser) is an employee as the University may have a duty to respond. However, the victim’s privacy will be upheld to the extent permitted by law. To explore off-campus confidential options refer to our Community Resources page. To reach Leeward’s Advocate, call (808) 348-0432 or send an email.
