Person Receiving the Report

Privileged professionals who have legally protected roles include University Counseling staff when acting in their clinical role; University Health Services staff when acting in their clinical role; and Clergy.  This means that if an individual reports that they have been a complainant to one of these privileged professionals, that professional cannot and will not disclose the information to any other individual or office without the complainant’s consent except under circumstances that require disclosure under the laws governing each profession (e.g. imminent threat of danger to self or others).  Designated trained Confidential Advisors are also available to university students.  Other faculty/staff, including some student staff, are required to report such violations to University Police and/or the Title IX Coordinator.  However, the complainant’s name or identifying information is not required in these mandated reports.  A third category of individuals includes those who must report all information related to the report to the Title IX Coordinator and/or designated campus official responsible for overseeing sexual misconduct complaints.
