Reporting & Process

Confidential Assistance

Information about or assistance with sexual misconduct policy or support resources may be obtained from a variety of university resources. Prior to filing a report, some individuals may find it helpful to consult with a confidential resource. All information shared will remain confidential to the extent permitted by law and university policy. Discussions with representatives from these offices are not considered a formal report to the university and, without additional action, will not result in intervention.
