Although we encourage students to report sexual assaults, you may wish to seek help through sources other than campus and local police. Something to keep in mind when choosing where to seek help if you wish to maintain confidentiality is that many of the resources on campus, to include staff and faculty, are known as Campus Security Authorities and are mandated reporters for certain crimes.
Campus Security Authorities are those individuals, offices or departments whose functions involve significant responsibility with students and campus activities. To assist in the identification and reporting of crime on campus, the Clery Act regulations define a campus security authority as:
The function of a Campus Security Authority is to document and report, to UCCS Police, allegations of Clery Act crimes that he or she concludes were made in good faith.
