On-Campus Resources for Sexual Assault and Harassment
Yale Law School and Yale University have an array of overlapping resources and complaint processes for students subjected to sexual misconduct. The following provides an overview of the resources and remedies available to students. Please note that of the University and Law School resources listed, only the SHARE Center and University’s Mental Health & Counseling Department offer strict confidentiality. The confidentiality, procedural formality, and available remedies vary widely from process to process. Teaching Assistants, Dean’s Advisors, and Cokers are all also mandatory reporters.
