Confidential Resources

Confidentiality refers to the protection of disclosed information in legally-protected settings. Privacy acknowledges discretion will be exercised in he course of an investigation or case. ​

 
Seek an Advocate. 

An advocate provides support and complete confidentiality, answers questions, gives information about options and additional resources, and assists with the options a complainant may choose to pursue.  All parties have the right to have an advocate/advisor attend appointments, meetings, and procedures with them. Advocates are not attorneys and cannot provide legal advice. 

Advocates can:
  • Accompany individuals to emergency room visits and follow-up appointments. 
  • Assist in obtaining protective orders.
  • Accompany individuals to meetings and investigative interviews.
  • Provide support and understanding of the court systems and university procedures.
  • Act as liaison between an individual and the legal system and/or university process.
  • Make referrals when needed.
