Main Content

The College will, to the extent permitted by law, honor a request by a complainant that his or her complaint of sexual misconduct, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking will not be disclosed to the alleged perpetrator or that no investigation be pursued. Such requests should be made to the Title IX Coordinator. If a student requests the College to not reveal his or her name to his or her alleged perpetrator or asks the College to not investigate his or her complaint, this may limit the College’s ability to respond fully to the incident, including pursuing disciplinary action against the alleged perpetrator. In order to ensure a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for all students or if required to report the incident by law, the College may not be able to honor a request for confidentiality. Additionally, the College has a duty to complete certain publicly available recordkeeping including reporting and disclosing information about certain crimes pursuant to a federal law known as the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. However, duties under the Clery Act will not require the College to report or disclose a complainant’s personally identifying information. Nonetheless, even where HUC-JIR cannot guarantee confidentiality, your privacy will be maintained to the greatest extent possible. If confidentiality cannot be guaranteed, the information you provide will be relayed only as necessary for the Title IX Coordinator to investigate and/or seek a resolution.
