On Campus Resources
Confidential On Campus
Theses on campus resources are confidential resources, which means that they are not obligated to report any information provided to them*. This allows for students to explore options in order to make informed decisions about what, if any, next steps they would like to take. While specific, personally identifiable information is not reported to the College and are kept confidential, incidents that are reported to these resources may be counted for statistical purposes, as required by the Clery Act.
*Note: there are times when information received by our confidential resources that involves imminent risk of serious harm, possible hospitalization, or indications of child abuse, where reporting protocols would need to be used by even our on campus confidential resources.
