Concerns - Campus Resources

At the University of Minnesota Duluth, fostering a climate of safety and respect is a critical campus priority. As a community of students, faculty, staff, we can only achieve our best in a campus environment that is safe, civil and inclusive. This page lists resources for UMD students, faculty and staff who have concerns. For help, use the Quick Resource phone guide on the left or contact the agencies and units below.


Confidentiality: If a reporting party would like the details of an incident to be kept confidential, the party may speak with counselors, health service providers, victim services advocates, domestic violence resources, local or state assistance agencies, or members of the clergy who are permitted by law to maintain confidentiality (except in extreme cases of immediacy of threat or danger or abuse of a minor). These sources will submit anonymous statistical information for timely warning and Clery Act purposes. Ask first!
