Confidential Resources and Reporting Options

All individuals are encouraged to make a prompt report to law enforcement and to the university.  An individual may seek confidential support and resources as designated below.  Confidential resources will not share information with the university nor will speaking with a confidential resource trigger action by the university under most circumstances.  We encourage all individuals to make a prompt report to the university using the reporting options below, but we recognize that individuals may choose to make a report of sexual harassment, misconduct or violence to any university employee.  With the exception of confidential resources, all other university community members, including student employees who have responsibility for student welfare, are trained to share the report with a Title IX coordinator or deputy coordinator of the university to ensure prompt and equitable review, investigation and resolution.
