File a Report

Reporting prohibited conduct to law enforcement or the university is a deeply personal choice that only you can make.

The university strongly encourages you to report an incident of sexual misconduct. Reporting the incident is the only way that the university and/or law enforcement can take action. Reporting the incident and having a medical examination performed within 72 hours (in sexual assault cases) are critical in preserving evidence and allowing law enforcement and/or the university to respond effectively; nevertheless, you can report an incident at any time.

You can report an incident to law enforcement before, during, or after an investigation or a resolution of the incident by the university. You have the right to decline to report the incident to law enforcement. Even if you do not report the incident to law enforcement or choose to participate in a university investigation, you can still access medical care, counseling, and other support from the university by notifying the Title IX coordinator or the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.
