The following information about privacy and confidentiality is from Section V of Kenyon's Title IX and Intimate Partner Violence Policy.
Privacy and confidentiality have distinct meanings under this policy.
Privacy generally means that information related to a report of Prohibited Conduct will only be shared with those College employees who “need to know” in order to assist in the active review, investigation, or resolution of the report, including the issuance of interim measures. Kenyon College will determine which employees have a legitimate need to know about individual conduct complaints pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and will share information accordingly.
Kenyon College may notify the parents or guardians of any dependent students who are respondents regarding conduct charges or sanctions, particularly disciplinary probation, loss of housing, suspension and dismissal.
Confidentiality means that information shared by an individual with designated campus or community professionals cannot be revealed to any other individual without express permission of the individual or as otherwise permitted or required by law. These designated professionals have the right to maintain privileged conversations under state law. Confidential resources include medical professionals, mental health professionals, rape crisis or domestic violence counselors and clergy.
Limits to confidentiality include:
The resources designated below can provide counseling, information, and support under confidentiality protections. These confidential resources will not share information about a reporting party, complainant, or respondent (including whether or not that individual has received services) with the Title IX Coordinator or any other employee of the College without the individual’s express permission or as permitted or required above (Limits to Confidentiality).
