Confidential Support

If a Complainant would like the details of an incident to be kept confidential, the Complainant may speak with a confidential resource. A confidential resource means that the staff members are required by law and by licensure to keep information provided by clients confidential with very few exceptions.

*Although they are University employees, they are not required to report your information to the Title IX Coordinator.

  • On-campus licensed professional counselors at the Counseling Center
  • On-campus health service providers at the Health Center
  • On-campus clergy members acting in their role as clergy
  • Off-campus (non-employees):
    • Licensed professional counselors and other medical providers
    • Local rape crisis counselors
    • Domestic violence resources
    • Local or state assistance agencies
    • Clergy/Chaplains
    • Attorneys

All of the above-listed individuals will maintain confidentiality when acting under the scope of their licensure, professional ethics, and/or professional credentials, except in extreme cases of immediacy of threat or danger or abuse of a minor/elder/individual with a disability, or when required to disclose by law or court order.

*Exceptions to confidential reporting: Medical and counseling professionals are required to report child abuse, elder abuse and situations where there is deemed to be an immediate threat of harm to self or others.
