On campus, those with administrative responsibilities for students are required to report crimes, including sexual assault, under the Clery Act (Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998) and Title IX.  The individuals involved will attempt to respect your privacy, but may have to forward identifying information to the Title IX Coordinator or their designee.

The College does provide confidential resources to provide a safe space for students to discuss their options, learn about resources and discuss any concerns before deciding to take next steps.  Individuals who consult with confidential resources are advised that their discussions are not considered reports of sexual harassment or sexual violence and without additional action by the individual, the discussions will not result in any action by the College to resolve their concerns.  With few exceptions (including imminent risk or harm or danger) these resources cannot share information without the expressed written consent of the individual.  This information is not considered an official report to the College.

Employees of the Student Development and Counseling Center, Student Health Services, and Campus Ministryworking in their official capacity are exempt from reporting under the Clery Act or Title IX.  You may seek support from these individuals with an assurance that any information shared will be kept confidential.  In these cases, information would only be shared with your permission.
