Types of Campus Resources for students
When it comes to resources offered on campus, there are three types: Confidential and Privileged, Confidential, and Non-Confidential. Confidential and privileged resources will not report the incidents to the University. Confidential resources are resources that will not report identifiable information (names, exact location, etc.) and are required to report basic information to the University (nature, general location, and date). Non-Confidential resources are required to report incidents to the University.
While each resource has something different to offer survivors, it is important to keep in mind that there is no right or wrong choice. For further details about these resources and for other options please visit the Resources page.
