Confidential Support

Even RIT Offices and employees who cannot guarantee confidentiality will maintain your privacy to the greatest extent possible. The information you provide to a nonconfidential resource will be relayed only as necessary for the Title IX Coordinator to investigate and/or seek resolution. If an individual discloses information during a public awareness event, a protest, during a class project, or advocacy event RIT is not obligated to investigate based on the public disclosure. RIT may however use the information provided in an effort to further educate about prevent efforts.
