Campus Ministry 

Ordained Clergy (i.e. Brahmachari, Fr., Imam, Rabbi, or Rev.) - Confidential

Within the Office of Campus Ministry, ordained clergy, acting in their pastoral roles, are fully confidential; this includes both Chaplains in Residence and Jesuits in Residence when acting in their pastoral roles. Individuals in those roles do not report any information to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator or the University’s Title IX Coordinator. They must, however, appropriately report any safety concerns as required by their professional licenses (child abuse, elder abuse, harm to self or others, etc.).  Since identifying information has not been shared, there is no outreach to the student from the Office of Title IX Compliance.
