Policies and professionalism: Scenario six

One of your students asks to speak with you privately. The student tells you that following a party a couple weeks ago, she had sex with another student who is also in your department. She had been drinking and believes that she was forced into having sex without consent. Although she is not currently in a course with the other student, she often sees him around the building which brings it all up again. You student just wanted to talk about it with someone and doesn’t want you to do anything about it nor tell anyone else.
