University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC) advisors offer personal and moral support to parties before, during and after a hearing. Advisors can also help parties prepare for meetings, respond to communications that are part of the UWC process and ask questions on behalf of their advisee of the opposing party and any witnesses during a UWC hearing. Advisors have received training in the UWC’s procedures, Yale’s sexual misconduct policies and related definitions and their role as advisors in UWC proceedings. Please contact the UWC Office at 203-432-4449 if you wish to receive the support of a UWC advisor.
