Here to Help: Confidentiality

The university keeps its PPM 3010 process and associated steps in a particular evaluation confidential to the extent possible. This confidentiality is limited by, for example, due process, lawfully issued subpoenas and other instances in which university employees have a need to know.

The university is committed to keeping confidential information related to victims, including not putting identifying personal information in publicly available records, to the extent permitted by law. For example, the university does not include personally identifying information in the Clery Annual Security Report, which includes statistics for reports of certain crimes.

Moreover, the university will confidentially maintain information about options and reasonably available changes utilized by a person to the extent permitted by law and so as not to impair the university’s ability to provide them.

If necessary to disclose personal information to provide the accommodation, the university will so advise the individual who experienced the crime.
