  3. What should you tell a student who discloses an incident of sexual misconduct?

    Before a student reveals information that he or she may wish to keep confidential, you should make every effort to ensure that the student understands the following:

    • Tell the student that you are required to report the name of the recipient of the unwelcome behavior and the perpetrator involved in the alleged incident of hazing, as well as relevant facts regarding the alleged incident (date, time, and location) to one of the employees designated for hazing reporting. So while they may want to talk to you, make sure to let the student know that you will cannot keep the information confidential.

    • Tell the student that they may talk confidentially to counselors in the Student Counseling office and the University Chaplain, who are not required to report or reveal any personally identifiable information, and that there are also off-campus advocacy resources.  Explain to the student that if, after talking with the confidential resource, they decide to proceed with a report and allow their name to be used in investigating the complaint, they may do so any time by contacting one of the employees designated for hazing reporting.

    • Tell the student that they have a right to make a complaint to the university, that the university must investigate the complaint promptly and thoroughly, and that you can assist them in contacting an employee designated for hazing reporting to make a complaint.  If a crime is involved they have a right to report the crime to Safety & Security or local law enforcement.  Safety & Security personnel can assist the student in contacting local law enforcement.

    • Tell the student that once the information is reported to one of the employees designated for hazing reporting, the student may request that the school maintain his or her confidentiality and not reveal his/her name to the alleged perpetrator, or request that the school not seek action against the alleged perpetrator.  If the student does not wish to seek action against the alleged perpetrator, the employee designated for hazing reporting will make every effort to respect that choice, considering among other things, the university’s responsibility to protect the student and provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for all students.

    • Tell the student if they do seek university action against the alleged perpetrator that there are protections against retaliation and that strong responsive actions will be taken if any retaliation occurs.

    • Provide the student with the handout of Confidential and Non-Confidential Resources as you are helping them understand their options and encourage them to talk to one of the on-campus resources, either confidentially or non-confidentially.
