University resources who are not Confidential Resources as defined above will make every effort to respect and safeguard the privacy of the individuals involved. Privacy means that concerns about Prohibited Conduct will be shared with a limited circle of University representatives who need to know only to assist in the assessment, investigation, and resolution of the report, and to the extent required by law or court order.
The Dean of Students Office (DOS) provides direct support to Claimants, Respondents, or other students who are involved in reports of Prohibited Conduct. This support includes navigating academic, personal, and community impact; advising on policy and procedures; and connecting to other available support and resources. The Respondent Support Program is housed in the DOS and has dedicated trained staff who provide direct support to Respondents who are involved in reports of Prohibited Conduct.
Additional information about these and other resources is contained in Our Community Matters Resource Guide.
