Confidentiality

The University does not have procedures for voluntary confidential reporting of crime statistics.  Violations of law will be referred to law enforcement agencies.  Crimes reported to counselors at the Student Counseling Services, the Psychology Clinic, or to a physician or nurse at the Health Services Center are confidential by law. Some off-campus reports may also be legally confidential (for example, to clergy, the Community Counseling and Crisis Center, and McCullough-Hyde Hospital). Crimes reported to the above are not included in the annual crime statistics report.

Miami University will preserve students confidentiality to the extent possible and allowed by law. A person may speak confidentially with certain persons in legally protected roles including:

  • Counselors at Student Counseling Service
  • Medical staff at the Student Health Center
  • Off-campus with clergy, counselors, physicians
  • Women Helping Women at 513-381-5610 or toll free at 877-889-5610

In addition, the University sponsors several awareness campaigns throughout the academic year including Take Back the Night, The Clothesline Project, and Walk a Mile in her Shoes.  These events offer an opportunity for victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking to share experiences in a private setting.

Clery Reporting

The degree to which confidentiality can be protected when a report is made to someone other than those identified above depends upon whether or not the individual to whom the offense is reported is legally required to report this information to law enforcement.  Ohio law and University policy requires those with knowledge of a felony to report it to law enforcement.  Miami employees including Resident Assistants and professional residence life staff are required to report sex-based offenses (including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking) to the Miami University Police who will, in turn, report it to the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator.  Reporting to the Miami University Police or other law enforcement does not require the victim to file criminal charges.

Public Records

Police reports are open for inspection and copying under Ohio's Public Records Act.  The extent to which Miami University can protect the identity of victims of sex-based offenses contained in police reports is not absolute; however the University uses its best efforts to protect the identity of the victim and the intimate details of the report.  The identity of an uncharged suspect may be withheld.

Crimes Involving Miami Students

The Miami University Police Department (MUPD) incident reports involving students accused of misconduct are forwarded to the Office of Ethics and Student Conflict Resolution for review and potential action, as appropriate. MUPD officers have the authority to issue citations and make arrests involving criminal activity that occurs on campus, as deemed appropriate.  MUPD will investigate a report when it is deemed appropriate.

Additional information obtained via the investigation will also be forwarded to the Office of Ethics and Student Conflict Resolution. If assistance is required from any of the local police departments listed above, MUPD will contact the appropriate unit.
