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.”

Disclosures of Child Sexual Abuse
All of our community members are welcome to discuss the issues that impact their well-being. Please know that any disclosures of child sexual abuse, even if it occurred many years ago, will have to be reported to Baltimore County Child Protective Services (CPS), who may investigate the allegations. Child sexual abuse is described as:
- Sexual abuse by a caretaker where the victim at the time was age 17 or younger.
- Sexual assault by anyone when the victim was age 13 or younger.
Sexual assault of anyone age 14 and older, that was not by a caregiver, is not reported to CPS.
