NCTA 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.
There are certain individuals on campus and in the community who you can talk to in near complete confidence. These individuals have no responsibility to take action, 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 conduct an investigation unless you take further action to inform campus authorities of your concerns, or the university learns about your situation from another source.
The following are NCTA confidential contacts:

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. Medical providers may have a responsibility to report certain crimes to local law enforcement as required by state law.
