Reporting and Resources | Office of Violence Prevention

There are multiple methods for reporting Sexual Misconduct including, but not limited to, the University Title IX Coordinator, law enforcement, to both, or to neither. These reporting options are not exclusive. A Reporting Party may simultaneously pursue criminal and disciplinary action. The University will support Reporting Parties in understanding, assessing and pursuing these options.

All University employees have a duty to report actual or suspected Sexual Misconduct to appropriate officials, though there are some limited exceptions, which are identified in this policy. Employees with a duty to report must share all details of the reports they receive with the Title IX Coordinator and/or Deputy Title IX Coordinator(s).

Confidential Reporting

For any report under this policy, every effort will be made to respect and safeguard the privacy interests of all individuals involved in a manner consistent with the need for a careful assessment of the allegation and any steps necessary to eliminate the conduct, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects. Privacy and confidentiality have distinct meanings under this policy.

Students can talk to a confidential resource about an incident of sexual misconduct whether or not they decide to make an official report, to participate in the University Title IX process, or to engage with the criminal justice system.

Safety Planning

Safety Planning is not always a one-time conversation. The Office of Violence Prevention can help connect students to on and off campus resources to assist in the planning process.

  • Initial conversations should address immediate safety needs. Over time, new concerns may arise that require adjusting the safety plan. For many survivors of sexual trauma, enhancing emotional, mental, physical, and economic safety will be a consideration for years after the assault. At any time a survivor may modify their safety plans.
  • Survivors may need assistance in implementing their safety plans. This may include the survivor considering whether to alert a faculty member, coach, work supervisor, RA, OM, or anyone else who might be able to assist in implementing the safety plan. It is important to understand the options available and the safety plan the survivor decides upon.
