Student Resolution Center staff members operate confidentially. That means we do not disclose who used - or did not use - the office. We make and keep the promise of confidentiality to the University community in the hopes that individuals will feel safe using our services. This confidentiality cannot be "waived" by users of the office because the privilege of confidentiality does not belong to users of the office. It belongs to the Office. In matters which become formal grievances or legal actions, the Student Resolution Center staff will not testify - either for or against you. This is absolute and non-negotiable.
