Reporting Process for Employees and Students

There are a number of ways that incidents of sexual misconduct can be reported. The first and most important thing is to make sure that if you or the person who has experienced sexual misconduct is safe and not in immediate danger.  If you or someone is in danger, call 911 immediately.

In many instances, informal discussion and mediation can be useful in resolving perceived instances of harassment or unprofessional conduct. Problems are sometimes easier to resolve when an informal atmosphere encourages people to identify the difficulty, talk it out, and agree on how to deal with it.  Please contact your supervisor or Title IX Coordinator for consultation and advisement on informal resolution.

Situations which cannot be resolved informally or are severe can be reported verbally or in writing to your supervisor or directly to the Title IX Coordinator.   Those who report should include as much relevant information as possible, such as the name of the victim, the name of the alleged harasser, and a factual description of the incident(s) (including dates, times, places, and the names of any witnesses).

Consistent with the University's Sexual Harassment Policy the Non-Discrimination Policyand its applicability to outside contractors, vendors, program participants, and other visitors to University property and buildings, complaints made against such individuals should be reported in the same manner as described above, and will be investigated pursuant to the investigative process, to the extent possible, depending on the particular circumstance.
