Confidential Resources

The university encourages all community members to make a prompt report of any incident of sexual harassment, sexual violence, stalking or intimate partner violence to local law enforcement and the University. For individuals who are not prepared to make a report, or who may be unsure what happened, but are still seeking information and support, there are several on-campus confidential resources available. Confidential resources will not share any information with the University or anyone else, unless there is an imminent risk of harm to self or others.
