If You've Been Accused
If you have been accused of sexual violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence or stalking, there are campus services available to help you understand your rights and the investigation and adjudication processes.
All campuses will have designated individuals – known as respondent services coordinators – who can:
- Help you understand your rights
- Explain and help you navigate the investigation and adjudication processes, including formal hearings
- Refer you to campus and community resources, such as for psychological counseling, legal services (including help understanding and complying with protection orders), alternative housing, academic changes and other needs
- Assist with securing an interpreter or translator, if needed
It is important to note that respondent services coordinators are not legally required to maintain confidentiality. However, as a general practice, the coordinators will request signed consent from you before disclosing personally identifiable information.
