Guidance recommends that colleges/universities should sign memoranda of understanding with local domestic violence and rape crisis centers as well as local law enforcement agencies regarding victim/survivor services and protocols. Care must be taken to establish a victim/survivor-centered advocacy structure in which expectations about confidentiality parameters are clear.
For more information and guidance on confidentiality, view the Reporting and Privacy Concerns section.
