How to Report an Incident

Reporting any type of discrimination, harassment, sexual assault, interpersonal violence or stalking is necessary to ensure that an individual gets the help they need, the responding party is held accountable and the community is made safer.

What happens after a report is made?

Upon receipt of a report, the Equal Opportunity and Employee Relations team will conduct an initial assessment. The goal of this assessment is to provide an integrated and coordinated response to reports of discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, stalking, interpersonal violence, complicity and retaliation. The assessment will consider the following.

  • Nature of the report
  • Safety of the individual and of the campus community
  • Reporting party’s expressed preference for resolution
  • Necessity for any interim remedies or accommodations to protect the safety of the reporting party or the community.

At the conclusion of the initial assessment, the Title IX coordinator, in coordination with the Equal Opportunity Response team (as appropriate), will determine the appropriate manner of resolution, which may include remedies-based resolution, the initiation of an investigation to determine if disciplinary action is warranted, or no further action under the Discrimination, Harassment and Related Misconduct policy based on the information gathered as part of the initial assessment. The Title IX coordinator has the discretion to determine which method of resolution is appropriate.
