Tulane University recognizes that confidentiality is particularly important to victims of crime and survivors of sexual assault. As a student at Tulane University you have several options in which to report an incident. These options fall into three categories; Confidential, Private, and Anonymous. It is important for you to understand the differences between these categories.
Additionally, the clock icon (left) indicates resources that are available
outside of regular business hours.
These resources offer confidential services. Except in rare, extreme circumstances, nothing will be shared without your explicit permission. Exceptions to confidentiality are when the provider believes you are a threat to yourself or others. We encourage all victims and survivors to seek counseling in order to process her/his experience, options, and to begin the recovery process.
Anonymous crime reporting is NOT for emergency situations. Anonymous reporting is an option if you are afraid of being identified as the complainant. However, you should realize that anonymous reports may not receive immediate and attention and must include sufficient detail where the appropriate officials are able to conduct an investigation if determined to be warranted.
Please note this format is not monitored 24/7. If you need emergency assistance, please contact Tulane Police Department (504) 865-5381 or a resource designated for after-hours support.
These conversations are kept as private as possible, but information must be shared with key staff members so that the University can offer resources and accommodations and take action if necessary for reasons of safety. In planning any resource, the wishes of the person are given full consideration. A campus-wide safety alert may be warranted but will not contain the victim’s name or specific address.
