Privacy v. Confidentiality

Private, Non Confidential Resources


Non-confidential resources will make every effort to respect the rights that all parties and witnesses have to privacy. The Academy wants all community members to seek the assistance they need without fear that their private information will be shared more broadly than they would like. Certain Academy employees, under some circumstances, require employees to share information regarding incidents of prohibited conduct, such as discrimination. Information is only shared on a need-to-know basis. It is reasonable to expect an employee (excluding those determined as confidential) will share a disclosure of prohibited conduct with their supervisor and/or the Title IX Coordinator. 

Confidential Resources



Used in the context of Title IX means that the Confidential Resources listed to the left do not need to report to the Title IX Coordinator or any one within the Academy's administration. However, the following exceptions maybe considered:

  • If a person presents an imminent threat of harm to themselves or others.
  • If a person would like to request certain protective supportive measures in the aftermath of a reported sexual violence, the Title IX Coordinator, may be contacts only for the purpose of implementing the interim measures.  

Requests for Confidentiality

In the incident in which the victim requests that the Academy maintain confidentiality or that no investigation or disciplinary action occur, after a Responsible Employee is notified, the Academy will wiegh the request against its obligation to provide a safe, non-discriminatory enviornment for its entire community, including the victim, and its obligation to comply with applicable laws.
