There is a distinction between confidential resources and reporting options. Any individual may choose
to seek support from professionals on campus and in the community who hold a legally-recognized
privilege. These include counselors, medical health providers, clergy and rape crisis counselors.
Speaking with a confidential resource does not constitute notice to the University.
In contrast, all other University employees (who do not have legally-recognized confidentiality) are
required to share information with the University’s Interim Title IX Coordinator. This allows the
University to provide resources and support to a complainant and to take consistent action to respond to
the report as outlined in the Marymount University Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Policy.
