Confidential Reporting

When discussing sexual or interpersonal misconduct, the idea of confidentiality can be confusing. Different people, depending on their roles at the University, have varying obligations with regard to confidentiality. Under Iowa law, communications with some individuals are legally confidential—this means they will not share with law enforcement or the Title IX Coordinator information they received in confidence. In addition to attorneys or religious counselors, these confidential individuals and services include the following:
