A conversation where questions can be answered is far superior to keeping something to yourself.

Non-professional counselors and advocates can also assist you without sharing information that could identify you.

At UB, this includes members of UB's Wellness Education Services.

These individuals will report the nature, date, time, and general location of an incident to UB's Title IX Coordinator, but will consult with you to ensure no personally identifying details are shared without your consent.

These individuals are not considered confidential resources as discussed above.

The State University of New York and UB are committed to providing options, support and assistance to victims/survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and/or stalking to ensure that they can continue to participate in university-wide and campus programs, activities, and employment.

All victims/survivors of these crimes and violations, regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, creed, age, disability, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, familial status, pregnancy, predisposing genetic characteristics, military status, domestic violence victim status, or criminal conviction, have the following rights, regardless of whether the crime or violation occurs on campus, off campus, or while studying abroad: All students have the right to: Copies of this Bill of Rights shall be distributed annually to students, made available on UB's website, and posted in each campus residence hall, dining hall, and student union or campus center and shall include links or information to access the Sexual Violence Response Policy and the Options for Confidentially Disclosing Sexual Violence.The State University of New York and the University at Buffalo want you to get the information and support you need regardless of whether you would like to move forward with a report of sexual violence to campus officials or to police.You may want to talk with someone about something you observed or experienced, even if you are not sure that the behavior constitutes sexual violence.Even UB offices and employees who cannot guarantee confidentiality will maintain your privacy to the greatest extent possible.The information you provide to a resource that is non-confidential will be relayed only as necessary to investigate and/or seek a resolution and to notify the Title IX Coordinator or designee, who is responsible under the law for tracking patterns and spotting systemic issues.UB will limit the disclosure as much as possible, even if the Title IX Coordinator determines that the request for confidentiality cannot be honored.
