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 at Yale Health offer strict confidentiality. The confidentiality, procedural formality, and available remedies vary widely from process to process, as outlined in this chart.

More information on Sexual Misconduct Response at Yale and University resources is available at the Sexual Misconduct Response at Yale website and the University Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC) website. Specific information on Yale University’s definitions of sexual misconduct, sexual consent, and sexual harassment, as well as the University’s policy on teacher-student consensual relationships can be found on the Yale Office of Equal Opportunity programs website.

Information is also available in YLW’s brochure “Sexual Misconduct Response: Resources for YLS Students,” available here.
