You may provide your name and request that it be held in confidence as the inquiry goes forward. If you request that your identity remain confidential, the person handling the inquiry will do so to the extent practicable and permitted by University policy and applicable laws. Penn’s ability to investigate allegations of misconduct and to take corrective action may be impeded if your identity is not provided to the person responding to the complaint. Depending on the nature of the allegations(s) raised (e.g. unlawful discrimination or sexual violence), conducting a fair and complete investigation may require that the full details of the incident, including your identity be shared. In those instances, all parties will be advised of the University’s policy against retaliation for making complaints.
