Find help for you or your loved ones

Fort Lewis College has a "no-wrong-door" policy for students, and this includes getting help in situations that include sexual misconduct. Most FLC staff, faculty, and WellPAC peer educators are mandatory reporters to Title IX of sexual violence and misconduct. Confidential services are available in the Counseling Center, the Health Center, and with the Professional Advocate and Case Manager.

The off-campus community of Durango and the surrounding four-corners community can provide resources not available on campus. These organizations are aware of and work to understand the unique experiences of our students.
