About the Confidential Resource Advisor

UMFK’s Confidential Resource Advisor (CRA) is located in Powell Hall’s Student Success Center and works under the Office of Equal Opportunity to provide confidential services related to sexual misconduct, intimate partner violence/abuse, and stalking for students and employees in the University of Maine System (UMS). CRAs will not disclose confidential information without the prior written consent of the party who shared that information and are not obligated to report occurrences to the Title IX deputy. However, CRAs are mandated to report any abuse that has occurred or is occurring to minors.

Confidential Resource Advisors can assist students and employees of the University of Maine System with several options to protect the safety and well-being of individuals.

Services Offered

  • Talk through what happened.
  • Answer questions or assist with finding information needed for their unique situation.
  • Explain available choices regarding systems (medical, university, legal).
  • Assist with academic success through accommodations.
  • Clarify options available for staff relating to employment leave and accommodations.
  • Provide referrals to support resources on and off campus.

Ongoing Support

The CRA is a UMS employee and, therefore, shared between two campuses. Students and employees may drop in to see if they are available, if needed, immediately. Otherwise, most appointments are scheduled via phone or email.

Hours available by phone and email:

8:00am – 4:30pm
