RESOURCES

The following University and community resources can provide confidential counseling and support, and, except in extreme circumstances, will not share information with either law enforcement or the University without an individual’s consent.

Confidential Resources – On Campus

You may not be ready to take action but want to speak with someone confidentially about what happened to you.  The Centers listed below are permitted by the nature of their profession to maintain your confidentiality.  The only report they are required to make is a record that someone (no name will be disclosed) has reported sexual misconduct, domestic or dating violence, and/or child abuse to them.  This information is disclosed in order for the University to accurately report crimes in our annual crime report.
