Review My Options Before Deciding About Whether to Report

You have several options for reporting to the University.  To assist you with your decision making you can speak to any of the resources listed below or those identified in this Resource Guide.  

Confidential Campus Resources for Students

Confidential resources, by law, will keep your identity and information private. They are able to provide for your immediate mental well-being and to discuss your options with you.

CST:  Confidential Support Team

CST provides specialized support related to sexual and relationship violence, which can range from a one-time appointment to ongoing counseling.  CST team members are available to walk you through your options for responding to sexual violence, and will assist you in getting to a SART exam, and/or making a report to the police or the university.

Additional Campus Resources for Students, Faculty, Staff and Postdocs

These resources will respect your privacy to the greatest extent possible; however, they are unable to guarantee confidentiality as they are required by law to notify the appropriate resource upon learning of Prohibited Conduct.  Seeking consultation does not require making a report or initiating a formal process.  

SHARE Title IX Office, formed in September of 2020, is the University’s central resource for combating, redressing, and preventing sexual harassment and violence issues experienced by all Stanford community members. The SHARE Title IX Office brings together in collaboration the teams of the former Title IX, SARA, and SHPO Offices. 

PLEASE NOTE: We strongly encourage you to direct all Title IX concerns to the Title IX Office. Individuals who wish to remain anonymous may contact the Ethics and Compliance Office using their anonymous Helpline (Ethics & Compliance Helpline).
