The Office of Title IX handles reports of prohibited conduct for university employees. Important information about your responsibilities as a mandatory reporter, as well as how best to help students and colleagues who report prohibited conduct to you, also resides within this website.
Reporting an Incident
If you report prohibited conduct to the Office of Title IX, you are considered a complainant.
If you are a complainant, you are not required to file a formal complaint with the Office of Title IX; however, the Office of Title IX wants to ensure you have access to resources and know about the available options for filing a formal complaint.
A mandatory reporter is a university employee who is identified in the Policy on Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Dating and Domestic Violence, and Stalking (“Policy”) as an option for a student to report prohibited conduct to the university.
