Reporting an Incident

How to Report an Incident
Students, employees, volunteers, and visitors of the University who have experienced any form of discrimination or harassment, including sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, are encouraged to report the incident promptly. Options are available for reporting an incident anonymously; please note, anonymous reports may limit the University’s ability to investigate or address the alleged conduct.

Mandated Reporting & Exceptions – University Employees
Any employee of the University who becomes aware of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, stalking on the basis of sex, dating/intimate partner violence or sexual exploitation, is a mandated reporter.  Mandated reporters must share identifying information with the Title IX Coordinator, including the names of all involved parties and any details of the incident made available to the mandated reporter.  Employees with a legal obligation or privilege of confidentiality, or who have been granted confidential status by the University, are not considered mandated reporters and are not required to report when the information is learned in the course of a confidential communication.
