Women's Center


Confidential campus resources for victim/survivors

The resources listed below are all able to protect your confidentiality by listening and offering assistance and options without having to report to university officials or police. Disclosures are never shared or reported without the explicit consent of the victims/survivor. If you are uncertain about whether you want to report, contact any one of these resources. 

Campus reporting resources (not confidential)

Other university employees are able and willing to assist you or another person who has been victimized, however, they are required to report disclosures of sexual violence, domestic violence, and stalking to university officials and cannot keep your information confidential.

Parents and families are not informed unless you tell them or sign a release, unless there is a significant threat to your health or safety.

The resources below are for reporting and are not confidential.
