Whether you’re already a Wildcat or you're about to become one, learn how to get the most out of the student experience by exploring all the opportunities, organizations and services that are a part of UNH's vibrant campus community.
Sexual Misconduct and Violence
As a member of the UNH community, there are various options for you to consider if you are faced with issues of sexual misconduct or violence. If you are interested in directly reporting an issue of this nature you should complete an incident report form. This form can be completed anonymously if you wish, however this may limit one's access to resources and support. Mandatory reporters at UNH are required to report any instances of sexual misconduct. These include: all UNH staff, faculty, hall directors, coaches, resident assistants (RAs), community assistants (CAs), teaching assistants (TAs), research assistants, Graduate and Undergraduate Student Senate Executive Leaders (when conducting work for the Student Senate) and UNH Manchester Peer Assistant Leaders (PALs) and Mentor Ambassadors for Transfer Engagement (MATEs).
However, you also have access to numerous confidential resources on campus. Being a confidential resource means that those involved in matters regarding sexual misconduct and Title IX have the opportunity to seek medical treatment, advice, or counseling without triggering a police or university investigation, or student conduct proceeding. The university houses four confidential resources on campus which include the: Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention Program (SHARPP), Psychological and Counseling Services (PACS), Health & Wellness, and The Beauregard Center. For more information on these processes please feel free to contact any of the confidential resources listed above, or visit us at The Beauregard Center in MUB 120.
