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. The 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, Student Health Services, and the Wellness Center.

If you have been the victim of a sexual assault or of sexual harassment, please know that it was not your fault. You are not alone. There are people on campus that will support and believe you.
