The university encourages individuals to seek assistance and support in response to sexual misconduct.
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.

Additional Sources of Support
UNL encourages you to report to local law enforcement and university authorities any sexual harassment or misconduct directed toward you.

When doing so, please keep in mind the university’s obligations to investigate received reports.
