Reports of sex discrimination can be made by email, phone or in person. Reports are sent directly to the university's Title IX Coordinator, who oversees all sex discrimination matters at the institution. Upon receipt of the report and depending on the detail of the information provided, the institution will take reasonable steps to investigate the matter, stop the harassment, prevent its recurrence and remedy its effects.
This form may be used to report any form of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment or sexual misconduct that you have either experienced or observed. You have the right to remain anonymous on this form but please be aware that the more details we posess, the better our ability to conduct a thorough investigation.
Report via phone or email:
The following person serves as the campus Title IX Coordinator and is designated to handle inquiries regarding the nondiscrimination policies and Title IX compliance:
The following persons have been designated as the campus Title IX Deputy Coordinators to assist the Title IX Coordinator:
Students, employees, volunteers, and visitors of the university who have experienced any form of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, are encouraged to report the incident prompty to the Title IX Coordinator.
Any employee of the university who becomes aware of sex discrimination as defined in this policy (including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, stalking on the basis of sex, dating/intimate partner violence or sexual exploitation) is a mandated reporter, regardless of whether the recipent of the behavior is a student, employee, volunteer, or visitor of the university.
All university employees and volunteers are required to complete the Mandated Reporter training annually.
Employees with a legal obligation or privilege of confidentiality (including health care providers, counselors) are not considered mandated reporters and are not required to report when the information is learned in the course of a confidential communication.
This also means that the employee seeking the exemption is employed by the university for that specific purpose and was acting in that capacity when the confidential disclosure was made. If the information is not learned in the course of confidential communication (for example, behavior is observed in class) then the employee has the same obligation as a mandated reporter.
Consistent with the law and upon approval from the Office of the General Counsel, campuses may also designate non-professional counselors or advocates as confidential for purposes of this policy and, therefore, excluded from the definition of mandated reporters.
However, these individuals are required once per month to report to the Title IX administrator aggregate, non-personally identifiable information regarding incidents of sex discriminiation reported to them. The aggregate data report should contain general information about individual incidents of sexual violence such as the nature, date, time and general location of the incident. Confidentiality in this context is not the same as privilege as under the law.
