Reporting Sexual Harassment, Sexual Violence, Relationship Violence or Stalking

All forms of interpersonal violence are violations of an individual's rights. It is everyone's responsibility in the university community to become sensitive to and educated about the legal, social and university codes regarding behavior in these areas. Students who believe they have been the victims of interpersonal violence, including sexual violence have the right to report the incident in any or all of the following ways:

The following officers and individuals are designated as mandatory reporters when they receive reports or complaints of alleged sex and gender-based discrimination including sexual harassment, sexual assault, and other forms of sexual misconduct involving students.  Mandatory reporters include chairs, deans, department and senior administrators, supervisors, human resources staff, campus safety and security, residence life and student conduct administrators.  Faculty and other employees supervising overnight domestic or international student trips are also required to report violations of Title IX.  All mandatory reporters must promptly report the incident to one of the University’s Title IX Officers, who will determine the most appropriate course of action to ensure a prompt and equitable response, in accordance with University policy. The Title IX  Officer will contact the Coordinator for Violence Response so that the victim/survivor can receive immediate support.
