Individuals wishing to remain anonymous may report an alleged violation of this policy in any manner; however, electing to remain anonymous will limit the University’s ability to collect evidence, take remedial action or otherwise fully address the alleged violation.

The University has an obligation to maintain an environment free of discrimination, harassment and misconduct. Thus, many university employees have mandatory reporting and response obligations and may be unable to honor a complainant’s request for confidentiality. Complainants who want to discuss a complaint in confidence may contact a physical or mental health care professional, professional counselor, or pastoral counselor (including those who act in that role under the supervision of these individuals).

Individuals filing a complaint under this policy may also ask that the complaint be considered confidential; however, the circumstances of the complaint will determine whether the request can be honored. the University may need to act to maintain campus safety and the Title IX Coordinator may elect to move forward with resolving the complaint, regardless of the complainant’s request for confidentiality, the manner in which a complaint is received, or whether a complaint is received at all. However, the complainant is strongly encouraged to file a written complaint. If the Title IX Coordinator determines that a request for confidentiality cannot be granted, the complainant will be notified.

In the course of an investigation into a report or complaint, the University may share information only as necessary with people who have a legitimate need for that information and to fulfill the purposes of University policy and to comply with applicable law. To the extent possible, the University will protect the privacy of all parties involved in a report of sexual misconduct.
