Confidentiality

Communication with CARE staff is confidential with the following exceptions:

  • We are required by law to report suspected child abuse
  • We will take action if you intend to harm yourself or another person
  • Confidentiality may be broken if you cite our office in any lawsuit
CARE staff is required to report to University Police the number of sexual assault cases that come to our attention. The identity of students who have been assaulted is not included in these reports. See the University Police website for more information on the federal Jeanne Clery Act that outlines this requirement.
