Support resources

The following campus offices offer support, and can help you understand students' rights and options regarding specific kinds of accommodations.

Note: while all of these offices listed keep your personal information private in adherence to the law and university policy, there is a reporting requirement in cases of gender discrimination or harassment (including sexual violence and harassment). Faculty, GSI’s, and all campus offices other than those marked “Confidential,” below, are considered “Responsible Employees,” meaning that they are required to share reports of sexual violence or sexual harassment with OPHD, the campus Title IX office. Unless there is imminent risk of serious harm, Confidential Resources cannot share information without your express consent, and receiving support from a confidential resource does not trigger a report to the university.
