Reporting Sexual Offenses

Reports may be made by:

  • An individual who has experienced sexual misconduct;
  • Anyone who receives a report from someone who experienced sexual misconduct and/or
  • Anyone who witnesses or otherwise has information that sexual misconduct may have occurred.

Reports can be submitted anonymously.

We recognize that deciding to report sexual misconduct and choosing how to proceed are difficult decisions. We understand that your feelings about whether to report an incident and how to proceed may change over time. We support all survivors of sexual misconduct during this decision-making process. You may be uncertain at first about how to proceed. You may wish to speak with a confidential resource in the Advising, Counseling, and Career Center before deciding how to proceed. Although you can report sexual misconduct at any time, we encourage individuals to report incidents of sexual misconduct immediately. When making a report, you need not know what particular course of action to pursue or how to label what happened. For more information, please consult our Victims’ Bill of Rights.

If you would like someone to support you during the complaint process or to explain this process, please contact the Title IX Coordinator or a personal counselor in the Advising, Counseling and Career Center.
