Section 3. Confidentiality Policy

  1. If you are a victim or are aware of an instance of gender discrimination and/or sexual misconduct, we highly encourage you to report. We have resources to offer and may be able to help. There are several options for reporting with differing levels of confidentiality. We will make every effort to keep the report as private as you wish.
  2. Certain employees can maintain complete confidentiality and are not required to share the details of the incident with anyone else, unless there is a concern for your safety or the safety of others. Other employees are required to share certain details of your report with specific professional staff on campus. Likewise, in certain situations the College has Federal reporting requirements. In these cases your information will be shared with as few people as possible and every effort will be made to maintain your privacy.
  3. If you are unsure of a staff or faculty member’s reporting requirement, please ask. This policy is intended to make individuals aware of the various reporting and confidential disclosure options available so that individuals can make informed choices about where to turn should they become a victim of, or are aware of sex discrimination. The reporting avenues, levels of confidentiality and other College reporting requirements are outlined in Section 8: Reporting Policies and Protocols.
  4. All individuals involved in an investigation or adjudication procedure will be informed of the importance of confidentiality.
