    • Confidential & Non-confidential Reporters

      NON-CONFIDENTIAL REPORTERS include all faculty and staff who are not listed as confidential reporters.  Non-confidential reporters are required to report any and all Title IX related incidents to the Title IX Office.  Resident Assistants are also non-confidential reporters and must report any and all Title IX related incidents to the Title IX Office.

      CONFIDENTIAL REPORTERS are trained professionals who can provide confidential support.  These individuals are not required by the University to report any information to the Title IX Coordinator without your permission, though they may have certain reporting requirements pursuant to their own professional licensure requirements or code of ethics.  You may also speak to one of the confidential resources on campus:
