The language isn’t student friendly
On paper, it sounds like a good policy. I don’t think the language is very student friendly. There are aspects of it that could be clearer, especially with the guides to the difference between disclosure and reporting. For example, to what extent would someone intervene if the person who made a disclosure is harmful to themselves? Oh, you know, as in distress?
Offer versions of policies presented in plain language and translated into languages commonly prefered by students. Ensure that these documents meet accessibility standards that consider the needs of students with disabilities and diverse learning styles.
Emphasize the victim's right to decide whether they would like to report the incident after they have disclosed it to the university. Ensure the victim is aware of the formal and informal routes for reporting, including the option of reporting to the police. Clearly communicate any limits to confidentiality.
In the policy itself and in materials and presentations promoting the policy, define "confidential" and "anonymous," and explain how these concepts pertain to the policy, university-based sexual assault services, and the limits on confidentiality and anonymity.
