Talk To Someone


The University has a policy requiring most University employees to report any information disclosed by students regarding alleged acts of sexual violence, gender-based harassment, intimate partner violence or stalking to the University’s Title IX Coordinator. Certain University employees are exempt from this reporting requirement. These employees are involved in the provision of medical and mental health services on Grounds; they are designated as “Confidential Employees.” Any disclosures made to Confidential Employees are protected under federal and/or state health care privacy laws. Confidential Employees will not disclose identifiable information to the University’s Title IX Coordinator or to any other person/entity without consent, unless a legal exception applies. Exceptions to health care privacy include:
