Confidential Resources

Confidential Assistance

The University generally expects all University employees to report alleged Title IX violations, including alleged incidents of sexual violence, to the Title IX Office. The University also seeks to maintain the privacy of all involved in a Title IX investigation, keeping in mind the University's responsibility to eliminate civil rights offenses and protect our community from those who would wrong others.

Sometimes, however, someone may want to seek assistance without the possibility of a Title IX investigation or disciplinary process. In order to more fully help those who may be victims of a Title IX violation, the University has designated various employees who can assist members of the University community without being required to provide personally identifiable information to the Title IX Office.

These are the the employees that the University has designated to provide confidential assistance:
