Confidentiality and Retaliation

Confidentiality

The Office of Equity and Compliance will make reasonable efforts to preserve the confidentiality of their investigation and resolution efforts but cannot guarantee anonymity to complaining parties or witnesses. The university will not accept complaints when the complainant cannot be identified.

Title IX Confidential & Non-Confidential Resources

Retaliation

All University employees and students have the right to complain about any conduct, which they reasonably believe constitutes discrimination. No university official may take disciplinary or other adverse action against a person who genuinely but mistakenly believes himself or herself to be discriminated against, even if the practices complained of do not, in fact, constitute discrimination.

The University prohibits retaliation or reprisal for making a report in good faith. Threats or other forms of intimidation or retaliation against complainants, respondents, witnesses or investigators will constitute a violation of Regents' Policy and University Regulation  BOR Policy  01.04.130 and may be subject to separate administrative action, including termination for cause.
