Report Response and Assessment
Upon receiving a report of sexual harassment or retaliation, the Title IX Coordinator or designated Deputy Coordinator will promptly request a meeting with the Complainant who made the report or about whom the report was made.
The meeting’s purpose is to review the Complainant’s rights and options, including but not limited to additional reporting options, privacy rights, contact information for on and off-campus resources, receiving supportive measures, the process for filing a formal complaint, and a summary of the University’s grievance process. The Complainant has the right to have an Advisor accompany them to this meeting.
If a Complainant does not wish to meet with the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator, these rights and options will be emailed to the Complainant and are available on the Title IX Resources webpage. If a Complainant chooses to not initially meet with the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator, they are still permitted to request to meet with the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator at any future time.
Before, during, after, or without a meeting with the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator, a Complainant has the option to request the following after submitting a report of sexual harassment or retaliation:
- Receive supportive measures.
- Request to not proceed with a report.
- File a formal complaint.
- Participate in an Informal Resolution (upon submission of a formal complaint).
- Pursue a Formal Grievance Process (upon submission of a formal complaint).
Please see the Non-Discrimination and Non-Harassment Policy for further information about these options.
