Confidentiality

The College treats all shared personal information as confidential. This means information gathered through any interaction with staff, faculty, or administration will only be shared with others on a need-to-know basis. Those who participate in a counseling or meeting covering personal information should respect the confidentiality of any information shared throughout. The College respects the privacy of those reporting concern or crisis, and will endeavor to respect requests for confidentiality to the extent permissible by law.

However, the College is dedicated to helping maintain the wellbeing of students and, as a result, cannot guarantee confidentiality in all cases.

All College staff and faculty affiliated with the College are required to report incidences of personal and interpersonal violence, including concerns of self-harm, to a member of the WVNCC Security and Safety Executive Committee: 

Campus Liaison Officer Officer Faldowski 304-650-9994

Chief Human Resources Officer/Title IX Coordinator Peggy Carmichael 304-214-8901
