Confidential Resources

Individuals who are confidential resources will not report information to law enforcement or college officials without your permission, except in extreme circumstances, such as a health and/or safety emergency, imminent threat to self or others, or where there is mandatory reporting of suspected child abuse. Accordingly, sharing information with a confidential resource will not result in a report to the College, an investigation, or disciplinary action.

Confidential Resources are not required to report the details of an incident to the Title IX Coordinator, however they can submit an anonymous report with information regarding the date, time and location of the incident as well as the type of conduct that occurred. The anonymous report does not need to include any personally identifiable information regarding the individuals involved in the incident. Click here for the anonymous report form.

Honoring your request for confidentiality may limit our ability to meaningfully investigate and pursue disciplinary action against an accused individual.
