Confidential Resources

Private Resources

Shared information is securely maintained and accessible only by those with appropriate and relevant needs to review. Information will be therefore disclosed to those on a “need to share” basis, as the information is not legally privileged or protected.

Other On-Campus Resources

There are other campus resources available for you that may be able to provide support.

Off-Campus Resources 

These off-campus resources will maintain confidentiality when acting under the scope of their licensure, professional ethics, and/or professional credentials, except in extreme cases of imminent threat or danger or abuse of a minor/elder/individual with a disability, or when required to disclose by law or court order.
