The Women’s Center offers resources, referrals, and one-on-one support relating to a variety of issues, including: feminism, social justice, and allyship; sexuality and gender identity; diversity and intersectionality; relationship violence; rape and sexual assault; harassment and stalking; parenting and childcare; eating disorders and health issues; and other topics concerning women.
The Women’s Center is identified as a quasi-confidential resource in the UMBC Interim Policy on Prohibited Sexual Misconduct. Under this classification, “Non-Licensed Counselors, Non-Licensed Healthcare Providers, and/or Advocates who work or volunteer at the University’s Counseling Services, Health Services, or Women’s Center are Quasi Confidential Resources. Conversations with these Quasi-Confidential Resources can remain confidential unless, there is a continuing threat of harm, as determined in the sole discretion of the University, or there is a legal obligation to reveal such information (for example in cases of mandatory reporting related to abuse or neglect of minors or in response to a legally sufficient subpoena). Further, Quasi-Confidential Resources will report incidents of Prohibited Conduct under this Policy, without any identifying information, to the University’s Title IX Coordinator and to the University Police.”
