Confidential Resources

The University recognizes that some individuals may wish to keep their concerns confidential.  Confidential communications are those communications which legally cannot be disclosed to another person, without the reporter’s consent, except under very limited circumstances such as allegations involving the physical or sexual abuse of a child (under the age of 18) or vulnerable adult or an imminent threat to the life of any person.  Individuals who desire the details of sexual misconduct to be kept confidential should speak with a medical professional, professional counselor, minister or other pastoral counselor, or trained victims’ advocates.  These resources include:

  • On Campus:
    • Counseling Services (712) 749-2123, Student Affairs Offices – Swope Hall
