Confidential Counselors

If you wish to speak with someone who is legally privileged to keep communications confidential, you may contact a confidential counselor. After consulting with a confidential counselor, you may decide to take no further action; such a decision is completely within your discretion. Because of the confidential nature of the counselor/patient relationship, seeking advice from a confidential counselor does not constitute reporting an incident.  To find a confidential counselor, click here.  

EthicsPoint

EthicsPoint provides another means of reporting discrimination, harassment, and sexual harassment.  You may file a report online or by phone at 866-294-3545. Any complaints reported via EthicsPoint will be reviewed in accordance with current University procedures.
