- Info For
Support looks different for everyone. The information provided below enables you to become informed of the resources available to support those who have been affected by sexual misconduct. These are available regardless of whether or not you choose to initiate a formal process.
We also recognize that confidentiality is particularly important to survivors of sexual misconduct. There are several options to seek support and/or report an incident of sexual harassment or violence. These options fall into two categories: confidential and non-confidential as defined below.
Confidential resources: People who are not required to file a report if told about instances of sexual misconduct. They can help you file a report, but only if you decide to.
Non-confidential resources: People who are required to file a report if told about instances of sexual misconduct. Most Duke employees (including RAs and TAs) fall in this category, which Duke calls Responsible Employees.
Here are some non-confidential resources you may want to reach out to:
For more info about what happens when you talk to a Responsible Employee, please see the FAQs.
