Oxford University ISVA
The Oxford University independent sexual violence advisor (ISVA) exclusively supports Oxford University students in successfully navigating reporting procedures on a college and university level, as well as the legal and justice system.
The Oxford University ISVA is employed by OSARCC and works closely alongside the Sexual Harassment and Violence Support Service, but works completely independently from the University, your college or any other agencies, and will tailor their support according to your needs.
People can be referred to the ISVA by themselves (self-referrals) or by a concerned party with the student's permission (third-party referrals).
