Confidential Disclosures of Sexual Misconduct

The Advocacy Center for Sexual Violence

The Advocates at the University at Albany’s Advocacy Center for Sexual Violence are available to assist student victim/survivors without sharing information that could identify them. Federal law requires that these individuals report only the nature, date, time, and general location of an incident to University's Assistant Vice President for Equity and Compliance and Title IX Coordinator, but will consult with you to ensure no personally identifying details are shared without your consent. While Advocacy Center employees are not considered confidential resources as discussed above, it is important to understand that they will not share a victim/survivors name, or any other identifiable information without the victim/survivors consent.
