Confidential Resources on Campus

There are certain individuals and offices on campus who you can talk to with near complete confidence. These individuals have no responsibility to act, report to law enforcement, or report to the university the information you share with them, so long as the individual is acting in their role as counselor, advocate, medical provider, or attorney at the time you share your concerns. Please be advised, if you share your concerns only with these individuals, the university will not investigate unless you take further action to inform campus authorities of your concerns, or the university learns about your situation from another source.

NOTE: While Confidential Resources do not have an obligation to take action or to initiate a campus investigation, they do have an obligation to report statistical information regarding some crimes, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking to campus police for the purpose of annual crime statistic reporting. They may also have an obligation to report non-identifying information to the Title IX Coordinator for the purpose of addressing campus climate.

Supportive Measures

Supportive measures are individualized services offered to Complainants and Respondents through Institutional Equity and Compliance. Supportive measures are meant to restore or preserve equal access to the university activities without unreasonably burdening the other party. Supportive measures may include:

  • Counseling
  • Extensions of deadlines or other course-related adjustments
  • Modifications of work or class schedules
  • Campus safety escort services
  • Mutual restrictions on contact between the parties
  • Changes in work or housing locations
  • Leaves of absence
  • Increased security and monitoring of certain areas of the campus

The measures may be offered before or after a Formal Complaint has been filed, or in situations where no Formal Complaint has been filed. Institutional Equity and Compliance will keep supportive measures confidential to the extent possible while being able to enact the measures.

Additional Sources of Support

UNL encourages you to report to local law enforcement and university authorities any sexual harassment or misconduct directed toward you. However, not everyone is ready to make such a call or report concerns right away. Your safety and welfare is of utmost concern to the university. Therefore, to the extent you are not ready to report to local or campus authorities, we encourage you to seek guidance from those closest to you. When doing so, please keep in mind the university’s obligations to investigate received reports.

  • A friend you can trust
  • A parent or familly member
  • Other supportive people in your life
