Private and Confidential Resources (Student Misconduct)
The university distinguishes between seeking assistance from a private or confidential resource and making a report of prohibited conduct to the university or law enforcement (see section V for reporting options). The university also distinguishes between privacy and confidentiality.
Privacy in this context means that information related to a disclosure or report of prohibited conduct will generally be shared only with those university employees who need to know the information in order to review, investigate, or resolve the report.
Confidentiality means that information shared will not be disclosed without the individual’s permission or as required by law. Disclosure may be legally required if the reported conduct poses a threat of serious harm to the Reporting Party or others, or if the reported conduct involves suspected abuse or neglect of a minor.
