EmPOWER Center

Students impacted by sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking, or sexual harassment may go to EmPOWER for support and care. The Center provides free, confidential advocacy and support to 7C students.

EmPOWER provides counseling services to students. To schedule an appointment with a PSFS counselor, call (909) 607-0690. Counseling sessions are free and unlimited. The counselor also has drop-in hours.

Confidential Advocate
The EmPOWER Center Director is not a counselor but is a confidential advocate. The Director can meet with students for one to two sessions to provide emotional care and support, provide information about resources/options available, and help navigate on- and off-campus resources. Talking to the Director is a good option if you know you’re not ready or aren’t sure if you’re ready for counseling. The Director also holds drop-in hours.

Support Group
Offered each semester, this group is designed for students from the 7Cs who have experienced sexual assault or sexual abuse, whether recently or long ago. In the group, survivors can share their experiences, explore their feelings, and receive support as they work through the healing process in a confidential space. The group is facilitated by a PSFS counselor.

CMC Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Assault

Sometimes talking to a peer may feel like exactly what you need. Advocates are Claremont McKenna students who are available to provide support to survivors and to connect them to resources. You may speak anonymously to an Advocate. If you choose to tell the Advocate who you are, they will not need to reveal your identity to College officials unless there is an imminent risk to the self or others.
