Supportive resources are available at the University. Some of these resources are designated as confidential. Other resources provide support, but may need to involve OIE and/or DPSS. Regardless of whether the University determines that Prohibited Conduct occurred, the University will offer resources or assistance to Complainants, Respondents, witnesses, and other affected University Community members after receiving notice of alleged Prohibited Conduct. The University will also assist those individuals in identifying and contacting external law enforcement agencies and community resources.

A. Confidential Resources

Confidential Resources are available to provide individuals with assistance, support, and additional information and are prohibited from disclosing confidential information unless: (1) given permission by the person who disclosed the information; (2) there is an imminent threat of harm to self or others; (3) the conduct involves suspected abuse of a minor under the age of 18; or (4) as otherwise required or permitted by law or court order. Confidential Resources may be required to report non-identifying information to DPSS for crime reporting purposes.

B. Non-Confidential Resources

Non-Confidential Resources are available to provide individuals with assistance, support, and additional information, but who are not designated as confidential and may have broader obligations to report information that is shared with them. Non-Confidential Resources will make reasonable efforts to respect and safeguard the privacy of the individuals involved. Privacy means that concerns about Prohibited Conduct will only be shared with University representatives, such as OIE, responsible for assessment, investigation, or resolution of the report or otherwise properly responding to issues raised; to DPSS for crime statistics reporting; and to the extent required by law or court order.
