Step 1: Who Can I Talk To?
A variety of confidential and non-confidential campus resources are available to hear your concerns and offer guidance following an incident involving bias, discrimination, and/or harassment.
Confidential Resources are available to talk through your options, offer support, and provide assistance. They will also keep information private unless there is an imminent danger to the student, faculty, staff or to others. In addition, a student’s disclosure during the Sacrament of Reconciliation (confession) will not be revealed by the priest for any reason, which is a sacred obligation protected by law.
Non-Confidential Resources can also talk with you about your experience and provide guidance on the reporting process. However, Non-Confidential Resources cannot promise confidentiality. With the exception of these Confidential Resources, all University employees, including faculty and staff, who receive information about any suspected or potential violations of sexual assault, sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and/or conduct that creates a hostile environment, whether from the student involved or a third party, must report the information to the University.
