Confidential Advisors are trained and available to discuss incidents of sexual misconduct or interpersonal power-based violence in confidence, and generally only report to the University that an incident occurred without revealing any personally identifying information. Disclosures to these trained confidential advisors will nottrigger the University’s investigation into an incident. In addition to providing confidential counseling, confidential advisors also provide emergency and ongoing support to individuals who have experienced sexual misconduct or power-based violence, including:

These resources are available whether or not a reporting party chooses to make an official report or participate in the University’s Investigation and Resolution Procedures or in the criminal process, and can assist parties with obtaining needed resources, explain reporting options, navigating the reporting process, and providing ongoing support as needed.
