Reporting Sexual Misconduct

Title IX Reporting

If you have experienced sexual or gender-based discrimination, harassment, or violence, or if you have concerns about these or related issues, there are a number of ways to share your concern with the Office of Title IX. You may contact the Title IX Coordinator or any Deputy Coordinator by phone or email, schedule an in-person or virtual meeting, or use the online reporting form to get in touch with us.

When you contact the Office of Title IX, we will discuss your options for support and resolution. The party who reports a concern or complaint to the Office of Title IX is called the complainant. In most cases, complainants may decide on the response the University takes. The possible courses of action after submitting a concern or complaint are:

Supportive measures

Supportive measures exist to restore or preserve access to the University’s education program or activity and may include:

  • Referral to counseling, medical, or other healthcare services
  • Referral to community-based service providers including crisis lines or shelters
  • Student financial aid counseling
  • Changes to campus housing assignments
  • Changes to work arrangements for employees or student-employees
  • Safety planning
  • Implementing contact limitations or no contact orders
  • Academic support, extensions of deadlines, or other program modifications
  • Changes to class schedules; facilitation of withdrawals or leaves of absence

Informal resolution

Informal resolution through mediation is an option in certain circumstances. Both the complainant and respondent must agree to the informal resolution, which typically consists of 1-3 meetings with the Title IX Coordinator or other designated party to discuss the alleged violations and explore possible remedies. Informal resolution is not available in circumstances involving a student complainant and employee respondent, nor is it subject to appeal by either party after a resolution has been reached.

Formal resolution

Formal resolution of Title IX complaints requires an investigation and a live hearing. Investigations are conducted by trained members of the Title IX team, and are thorough, reliable, impartial, prompt, and fair. A detailed description of the formal resolution process is available in the University’s Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy and Resolution Process (pdf).
