Resources: Where can I get help?

 

It is important  to understand that there are certain resources on campus that are confidential.  Confidentiality is a guarantee that no information will be shared with third parties without the reporter's permission.  University Police can take confidential police reports but they have a legal obligation to investigate any report of a crime or safety issue.  The reporting party information (i.e., name, address, etc.) is kept confidential. 

The Confidential Resources on campus are the Counseling Center, Health Services, and the Wellness Center.
