UH Confidential Resources

On Campus

You may not be ready to take action, but want to speak with someone confidentially about what happened to you. The staff people in the offices listed below are permitted by the nature of their profession to maintain your confidentiality. The only report they are required to make is a record that someone (no name will be disclosed) has reported sexual misconduct, domestic or dating violence, and/or child abuse to them. This information is disclosed in order for the colleges to appropriately report crimes in their annual crime reports.

Confidential Resources Contact Information for all campuses can be found below.

Kapi'olani Community College Health Services (See University Health Services Mānoa)
Kapi'olani Community College does not provide on campus health services. Students from KCC may use the services at University Health Services Mānoa (UHSM) with a surcharge (currently $25) on the first visit, and another $25 on the second visit of each semester, after which they are eligible to the same services at the same charges as regular UH Mānoa students. Kapi'olani Community College is unable, at this time, to finance the high operating and maintenance costs of an on site health clinic. Also, because we are a commuter campus, there is little demand for on site services.

Other Sources of Support

There are many sources of support and information at the colleges, however many individuals are mandatory reporters of sexual misconduct. You may choose to talk with someone who is not a confidential resource, such as an RA or Dean of Students staff member. Unless designated a confidential resource listed above, the individual you speak with may be a mandatory reporter. Mandatory reporters must file a report with the Title IX Coordinator and if identifying details are provided, disciplinary action may be necessary. If you are not sure if you want to pursue action, you may want to speak with a confidential resource first. If you choose to speak with any other individual, you may want to limit the details you share while you gather more information to help inform your decision.

In general, the disclosure of private information contained in medical records is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). In the context of sexual violence, however, medical providers in Hawaii, including medical providers at Student Health Services, are required to notify law enforcement if a patient tells medical personnel they have experienced sexual violence. The patient has the right to request that a survivor advocate be present with them when they speak with the police and to request that criminal charges not be pursued. Neither on- nor off-campus medical providers will notify the college of the report.
