Confidential Resource Information


What is a Confidential Advisor?
A Confidential Advisor is an individual designated to aid a student involved in a sexual misconduct complaint resolution process serving as a confidential resource. As suggested by the term "confidential advisor," confidential communications with the advisor will be kept confidential in all circumstances except where the institution or advisor may be required to disclose the communications under state and federal laws.  The Southern University describes the duties of the Confidential Advisor to include:

1) To inform a complainant of the following:

  • The rights of the complainant and respondent under Southern University policies.
  • The complainant's reporting options, including the option to notify the Title IX Coordinator, the option to notify local law enforcement, and any other reporting options.
  • If reasonably known, the potential consequences of the reporting options.
  • The process of investigation, adjudication, and disciplinary proceedings of Southern University.
  • The limited jurisdiction, scope, and available sanctions of SUBR student disciplinary procedures, and that this process should not be considered a substitute for the criminal justice process.
  • Potential reasonable accommodations that Southern University may provide to complainant.
  • The name and location of the nearest medical facility where complainant may have a rape kit administered by an individual trained in sexual assault forensic medical examination and evidence collection, and information on transportation options for a visit to such facility.

2) To advise the complainant of, and provide written information regarding, both the complainant's rights and Southern University's responsibilities regarding orders of protection, no-contact orders, restraining orders, or similar lawful orders issued by Southern University.

Disclosures or reports made to any other entities except those listed above are NOT confidential.  For example, incidents of sexual misconduct discussed with a supervisor, resident assistant, coach, staff, or faculty member, and those persons are "Responsible Employees" and, as such, are obligated pursuant to this policy to report sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator.

What Other Confidential Resources are Available?

A confidential resource  exists, on- campus and off-campus,  to provide a safe space for individuals to discuss their options related to the sexual misconduct reporting and investigation protocol, learn about the resources available to them, and to discuss concerns before making any decisions on how to proceed. Individuals who consult with confidential resources are advised that their discussions are not considered reports of sexual misconduct and that without additional action by the individual, the discussions will not result in any action by the University to resolve their concerns.  Unless there is imminent risk of serious harm, confidential resources cannot share any information without the consent of the individual sharing the information.

Unless there is an immient threat to health or safety or other basis for disclosure, confidentiality applies when persons seek services from the following on-campus resources:
