Can I Request Confidentiality?
If the reporting party requests confidentiality or asks that the complaint not be pursued, Liberty University will take reasonable steps to investigate and respond to the complaint consistent with the request for confidentiality, but Liberty University's ability to respond may be limited. Liberty University will evaluate the request in the context of its responsibility to provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for all students, faculty and staff. Liberty University reserves the right to initiate a formal or informal investigation, and will inform reporting parties and/or alleged victims if confidentiality cannot be ensured. Pursuant to Va. Code §23-9.2:15, any report of sexual violence where a reporting party and/or alleged victim is requesting confidentiality will be given to the Threat Assessment Team to meet and determine necessary and appropriate disclosures of the information based on the Va. Code § 23-9.2:10; 23-9.2:15.
