Confidential Resources are those campus and community professionals who can maintain legally-protected confidentiality within the University for the individual who shared the information. Confidentiality means that information shared by an individual with a confidential resource cannot be revealed to any other person without express permission of the individual, or as otherwise permitted or required by law. Confidential Resources are prohibited from disclosing confidential information unless (1) given permission by the person who disclosed the information; (2) there is an imminent threat of harm to self or others; (3) the conduct involves suspected abuse of a minor under the age of 18; or (4) as otherwise required or permitted by law or court order.
Confidential Resources available to individuals include the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC), Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and the University Ombuds. SAPAC provides direct support to Claimants, including crisis intervention; advocacy; assistance in navigating academic, personal, and community impact; and assistance in connecting with other available support and resources.
