The University offers a number of other resources to victims for receiving support advice, counseling and assistance, and for reporting incidents of sexual violence and other sexual misconduct, but while every effort will be made to preserve confidentiality to the greatest extent possible, these resources may be obligated to take action when they learn about an incident. Faculty members are not confidential resources and must contact the interim University Title IX Coordinator or a deputy coordinator if they are alerted to an alleged violation of this sexual violence policy
Certainly, based on comfort level, victims can choose to inform other University staff and administration, whereupon the University employee will make sure that a designated University official is informed.
