Confidential Resources

Confidential resources include all campus mental-health counselors, pastoral counselors, social workers, psychologists, health center employees, or any other person with a professional license requiring confidentiality, or who is supervised by such a person, all individuals who work or volunteer in on-campus sexual assault centers, victim advocacy offices, women’s centers, or health centers, including front desk staff and students, and all employees in the McBurney Disability Resource Center, the Ombuds Office, and the Employee Assistance Office. A confidential resource will not report specific information concerning a report of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking received by that employee in the employee’s professional capacity unless with the consent of the reporting individual or unless required by the employee’s license or by law. You can find information about the reporting responsibilities of University employees at Reporting Options and Expectations.
