Confidential Disclosure

The options for confidentially disclosing sexual misconduct (to include rape, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, dating or domestic violence and stalking) are listed below. It is important to note that the resources below are available for students who have experienced victimization of any type. Sexual misconduct is highlighted here because of the measures that the university employs to ensure confidentiality of this sensitive crime. Assistance is available upon request to help students review these disclosure options. University support services are available to students regardless of whether they choose to formally report the violation to the university or to law enforcement.

Confidential Disclosure:

Disclosures made to the health care providers and Student Victim Assistance staff at the locations listed below will be held in confidence and will not serve as notice to the university requiring initiation of a review of the disclosed conduct.

Important Note About Confidentiality*:
In instances of sexual misconduct, all university employees except those described below serve as Responsible Employees who are required to share all reports of sexual misconduct with administrative officials for university review. If you wish to disclose an incident of sexual misconduct confidentially, contact one of the confidential disclosure resources below.

While the services below are available to any student who has experienced any crime, sexual misconduct in particular may be disclosed confidentially in the following areas:

*The university will protect confidentiality by not disclosing the complainant’s information to anyone outside the university, except as required by law. Within the university, a complainant’s request for confidentially must be balanced by the university with its responsibility to provide a safe and non-discriminatory environment for the university community. Where the university cannot take disciplinary action against a student because of a complainant’s insistence upon confidentiality, the university’s response will be limited, but will pursue other steps where available to limit the effects of the alleged sexual misconduct and attempt to prevent its recurrence.
