A confidential resource is a person who is not required to respond to a report of relationship violence unless there is a threat of safety or well-being to a person or the university. Information shared with a confidential will not be included in an official report of sexual misconduct to the university, unless the complainant directs the confidential resource to share the information.

In addition to being a confidant, confidential resources can advise students where to go to file an official report on and off campus. At the request of the complainant, a confidential resource can accompany a complainant to any meeting on campus where the allegation is discussed, except in a case where Public Safety is involved.
