Title IX: Reporting Resources

If you are in immediate danger, call 9-1-1.

To Report Confidentially

If one desires that details of an incident be kept confidential, they can speak with someone in Goodwin's Counseling Services or connect with a representative at the Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence.

Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence is an off-campus confidential resource, they can be reached at:

888-999-5545 (English)

You will be connected to the sexual assault crisis center nearest you. A counselor/advocate is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to listen and offer support, as well as to provide you with information and resources to help you best decide what to do next. All services are free and confidential.

The University's Title IX and Equity Coordinator oversees compliance with all aspects of the Gender-based and Sexual Harassment Policy and the Non-discrimination Policy. The Coordinator reports directly to the Vice President for Human Resources and is housed in the Administration department.

Reports may be made to Goodwin University's Title IX and Equity Coordinator or via the online reporting tool.

Federal Statistical Reporting Obligations

Certain campus officials have a duty to report sexual misconduct for federal statistical reporting purposes (Clery Act). All personally identifiable information is kept confidential, but statistical information must be passed along to campus law enforcement regarding the type of incident and its general location (on or off-campus, in the surrounding area, but no addresses are given) for publication in the annual Campus Security Report. This report helps to provide the community with a clear picture of the extent and nature of campus crime, to ensure greater community safety. Mandated federal reporters include: campus law enforcement, local police, coaches, athletic directors, student activities staff, human resources staff, advisors to student organizations and any other official with significant responsibility for student and campus activities. The information to be shared includes the date, the location of the incident (using Clery location categories) and the Clery crime category. This reporting protects the identity of the victim and may be done anonymously.

Federal Timely Warning Reporting Obligations

Victims of sexual misconduct should also be aware that College administrators must issue immediate, timely warnings for incidents reported to them that are confirmed to pose a substantial threat of bodily harm or danger to members of the campus community. The University will make every effort to ensure that a victim's name and other identifying information is not disclosed, while still providing enough information for community members to make safety decisions in light of the danger. The reporters for timely warning purposes are exactly the same as detailed at the end of the above paragraph.
