Assault Survivors Advocacy Program
ASAP is a survivor-centered, trauma-informed resource on campus that addresses sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and stalking. We offer confidential* services to University of Northern Colorado students, staff, and faculty as well as their friends, family, and concerned others. ASAP provides 24-hour crisis response, which means we can meet with survivors at the hospital, police station, court, Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance, or their residence halls. We are staffed by one full-time employee, Angie Makomenaw, one part-time Graduate Assistant, and approximately 20 volunteer and intern Advocates; all of whom are confidential.
*Confidentiality is a privileged form of communication. This means that information shared with us, stays with us. Speaking to ASAP Advocates does not initiate a report or investigative process unless the survivor requests to do so. If an investigation is requested by the survivor, advocates are available to assist the survivor through that process.
Help for UNC-Affiliated individuals
If you are a victim or survivor of gender-based violence (stalking, sexual violence, and intimate partner violence) and need help, we have advocates available 24-hours a day for confidential support and assistance. You can reach us anytime via our crisis line: 970-351-4040. If you are unsure where you start, this website contains some helpful information and resources for you. We also encourage you to reach out to an ASAP Advocate who can help you navigate the resources and options available to you. We are here to help.
