Privacy and Confidentiality

The University is committed to protecting the privacy of all individuals involved in a report of sexual misconduct or relationship violence. In any report made under the policies, the privacy interest of those involved will be protected in a manner consistent with the need to respond to and to conduct a thorough review of the incident reported. Information will only be shared with those individuals who have a legitimate need to know the information in order to assist in the response to, investigation and/or resolution of the complaint.

Confidentiality is not the same as privacy. Confidentiality means that the information shared with a certain University employee or outside professional cannot be disclosed to others without the express permission of the individual who shared the information.

Individuals who wish to obtain confidential assistance without making a report to the University may do so by speaking confidentially with professionals who are obligated by law to maintain confidentiality, subject to the stated terms of confidentiality of that office. A complete list of individuals on campus who may maintain confidentiality under these terms can be found on the University’s Title IX Webpage by clicking the Confidential Resources tab on the Title IX and Sexual Misconduct webpage.

To file a complaint with the University, please complete our Title IX Report Form, and submit it to the Title IX Coordinator.
