Reporting and Investigations +

Victim-survivors are strongly encouraged to make a report to both the police and the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) for assistance and investigation. The police investigate criminal violations. The University (OIE and Office of Community Standards) investigates University conduct code and policy violations. Reporting can help to ensure the safety of the victim-survivor and the entire campus community. Victim-survivors have the right to report assaults without further participation in any investigation.

As stated in the Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment, and Related Interpersonal Violence, the University will not pursue disciplinary action against Complainants or witnesses for disclosure of illegal personal consumption of drugs or alcohol where such disclosures are made in connection with a good faith report or investigation of Prohibited Conduct. If an incident involved alcohol and/or drugs, UConn’s Good Samaritan Policy will explain the University’s expectations of students seeking immediate medical assistance for themselves or others when necessary.

Employee Reporting +

The University cares deeply about supporting victim-survivors and protecting community safety. Therefore, under UConn’s Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment, and Related Interpersonal Violence, most employees who witness or receive a report of sexual assault must report the incident to the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE). Exceptions include employees who are empowered by law to maintain confidentiality, such as those in Student Health Services and Counseling and Mental Health Services.

While a victim-survivor’s conversation with any University employee will be kept private (will not be shared unnecessarily with others), only a conversation with a confidential resource can be kept confidential (will not be shared with anyone without the express consent of the victim-survivor).
Under the federal Clery Act, many employees also have a duty under federal law to report crimes to the UConn Police Department. Their report to police will include the date, time, and place of the incident, but not the identity of the victim-survivor.
