In an emergency, potential victim(s) of this policy are encouraged to seek assistance from the Title IX Office, campus authorities (Campus Security and Safety Officers or Residence Life staff), Residence Life, or local law enforcement. Additionally, Counseling Services, Campus Ministry and the Saint Leo Health Center offer a confidential environment for potential victim(s) to seek assistance. As a precaution to protect the accuser, or accused, upon notification to campus authorities, the University will issue a No-Contact Order between the individuals/parties involved. Following the outcome of the disciplinary proceedings with the University, in accordance with FERPA guidelines, notification of the hearing’s results will be sent to both the accused and accuser via their Saint Leo University email account. In cases dealing with sexual misconduct, both the accused and the accuser have the right to appeal the outcome and findings of the University conduct hearing by following the appeal process as listed in Article V. Judicial Policies, Section D. Appeals.

Every effort, however, will be made to protect confidentiality, where possible and allowed by law, particularly where a safety concern exists.
