Support at the EmPOWER Center

Counseling, Advocacy, Drop-In Hours, Support Groups


The Center provides free, confidential advocacy and support to 7C students impacted by sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. 

1. Counseling Referral Service for Survivors of Sexual Assault:

EmPOWER collaborates with Project Sister Family Services, a community agency, to provide virtual counseling services to 7C students impacted by sexual assault. To schedule, students can call the Project Sister office at (909) 623-1619 and request to be placed on the Claremont Colleges counseling list. Students will then get a callback from a therapist to schedule an appointment. PLEASE NOTE - As per Project Sister policies, this service is not available for survivors of dating/domestic violence or stalking, unless sexual assault is a part of that experience. 


Sessions are:

  • Confidential (involves no reporting to colleges)

  • Free and unlimited

  • Open to all gender identities

  • For students who experienced sexual assault, recently or in the past

2. Support Groups

Confidential, weekly support groups for survivors of sexual assault and dating/domestic violence are offered every semester. Groups are open to students of all gender identities. The flyer provides information about our upcoming group for survivors of sexual assault. DV group information will be posted soon.


3. Additional Confidential Support

The director of EmPOWER is a confidential advocate. She can meet with students (or their friends) impacted by sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, or stalking for 1-2 sessions to provide care and support, provide information about resources/options available, and help navigate on- and off-campus resources.
