Confidentiality

The university seeks to respect requests for confidentiality in its response to incidents of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. However, it may be necessary to reveal certain personally identifying information to investigate and address complaints effectively. In such cases, the university takes steps to ensure that information is only shared as necessary, on a need-to-know basis, to resolve the underlying allegations.

Requests for confidentiality

The university generally will honor a complainant’s request for confidentiality, however this will limit the university’s ability to investigate the complaint and provide interim or other relief to the complainant. In some instances, depending on the nature of the incident (e.g., perpetrator has committed multiple offenses), the university must investigate and take steps to address the incident to ensure the safety of the campus community. The university will take action to notify the complainant if there is a need to conduct an investigation.
