Confidentiality

The Title IX Coordinator will seek to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the individuals involved in any report of alleged sexual misconduct, relationship violence and harassment or discrimination related to gender non-conformity to the extent possible and allowed by law. The Title IX Coordinator cannot guarantee confidentiality, however, and must evaluate any request for confidentiality in the context of the University’s responsibility to provide safe and nondiscriminatory environment. The following resources and support services offer confidential support for anyone involved with a Title IX incident:

  • Counseling and Wellness Services, 053 Student Union, 937-775-3407 
  • WSU Student Health Services, 051 Student Union, 937-775-2552

Every victim-survivor is entitled to receive support whether or not they ultimately decide to report. If you are not sure if you want to formally report the incident to The Office of Equity and Inclusion, you are encouraged to connect with one of the confidential resources. Confidential Resources can:

  • Help you understand, explore and connect with the formal reporting options should you choose to
  • Connect you with campus and local resources to receive any support you may need
  • With your permission, advocate and request services on your behalf
