A variety of campus and community resources are available to support students impacted by sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking.

Confidential Campus Resources

Confidential resources are not mandatory reporters and therefore not required to report incidents to The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE).*

Campus Advocacy, Resources & Education (CARE)

Provides confidential support to currently enrolled students who are survivors of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking and harassment. Resources and educational programs are available to all members of the TCU and Fort Worth communities.

*Confidential advocates and resources may report non-personally identifiable information to OIE, in compliance with Texas state law.

Non-Confidential Campus Resources

All other campus resources are considered non-confidential. Non-confidential resources are individuals who can support you and connect you with resources. However, since they are mandated reporters, they will be required to report your incident to OIE. They will respect your privacy and only share to those they are required to report. This differs from Confidential Resources who do not have to report your information to OIE. Mandatory reporters include all faculty and staff on campus unless they are specifically designated as confidential advocates or confidential resources.

Office of Institutional Equity

The Office of Institutional Equity and the Title IX Coordinator handles all reports and investigations of discrimination and harassment, including sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking and harassment. Contact the Office of Institutional Equity to make official reports of discrimination and harassment.
