Title IX and Power-Based Violence
Students, faculty, and staff are obligated to report incidents and share information about sexual misconduct and harassment, even if the complainant or witness has concerns about underage drinking, drug use or other prohibited activity.
We would still like to hear from you. If you are not sure whether you are ready to report, confidential assistance is available to you. You can discuss your reporting options and how to proceed with a confidential resource to make a decision that feels best for you.
