Resources

Counseling and Support

The University offers many supportive resources on campus for students to speak about any incident that has occurred. We have both confidential resources and private (but non-confidential) resources. The difference between these resources is explained below.

Confidential Resources
Minot State University has several “confidential” resources available, including counselors, campus chaplain and healthcare providers. These are people that, in general, are not obligated to share any personally identifying information about a report of sexual violence (such as the survivor or accused’s name) with law enforcement, the Title IX Coordinator, or any other University administrator. A report to a confidential source will not trigger an investigation or disciplinary action by the police or the university.

Confidential resources can offer the following assistance:

  • Provide information about how to file a complaint with the University or law enforcement;
  • Direct the student to other forms of protection and support, such as victim advocacy, accommodations, and/or health or counseling services;
  • Provide students with immediate and long-term help.

Private Resources
The University recognizes that students may be most comfortable disclosing incidents of sexual violence to a University employee they know well, such as a faculty member, coach or resident advisor. These “non-confidential” employees will protect and respect students’ privacy to the greatest extent possible and share information only on a need-to-know basis; however, they cannot serve as a confidential resource for students.

Any University employee (other than the confidential resources identified below) who receives a report about sexual violence conduct prohibited by the University's sexual misconduct policy is required to inform the Title IX Coordinator about the incident. This means that these individuals are required to report to the Title IX Coordinator all relevant details, including the name of the individual who made the report, the alleged victim (if different), and the alleged perpetrator, any witnesses, and other relevant facts. However, this does not mean that the University will automatically initiate a formal investigation of the incident(s). Rather, the Title IX Coordinator will work with the alleged victim to assess any request for confidentiality or anonymity, and determine how to respond to the report in a way that will stop and prevent recurrence of the alleged misconduct and provide remediation to the victim.
