Individuals who feel that they have experienced sexual misconduct are encouraged to work with Confidential Resources, such as Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources and Education (SHARE), Counseling and Psychological Services, Medical Services (at University Health Services), the Ombuds Office, the Office of Religious Life Chaplains, and Womanspace. Detailed information regarding Confidential Resources, including contact information, is available here.
Confidential Resources are not obligated to report information that is provided to them. This allows individuals to explore their options in a non-pressured environment while they make informed decisions. There may be exceptions in cases involving child abuse, imminent risk of serious harm, emergent hospitalization, or a court order. For more information about confidentiality, see Title IX Sexual Harassment policy Appendix A and University Sexual Misconduct policy Appendix A.
