The Student Support and Intervention Team will keep all submissions private, which means information will never be shared unnecessarily and the team will not disclose a reporter's name if it can be avoided. Some situations, such as those deemed to present a danger to an individual student or our community, may require the team to share information with others so that they can most effectively intervene.
If you would like to speak with someone fully confidentially, there are on-campus options.
Licensed psychologists and social workers, and ordained clergy (when serving in their religious capacity) are the only College employees whose professional privileges allow them to provide confidential services and support with extremely limited exceptions.
