Campus & Community Support Resources

The following resources are available to provide support and help you to determine what steps to take next. If you choose to make a complaint, there are many reporting options.

Confidential Resources

Confidential Resources are not obligated to report information that is provided to them.  This allows individuals to explore their options in a non-pressured environment while they make informed decisions.  There may be exceptions in cases involving child abuse, imminent risk of serious harm, emergent hospitalization, or a court order.

In addition, non-identifying information about violations of the Sex Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct policy may be submitted to the Department of Public Safety for purposes of the anonymous statistical reporting under the Clery Act.  For more information about confidentiality, see section 1.3.5 of the sex discrimination and sexual misconduct policy.
