Quick Reporting Guide

We don’t want you to ever feel like your voice is unheard. That’s why we’ve put together two quick guides for reporting sexual misconduct. The first guide has a list of who you can report the misconduct, the level of confidentiality and possible outcomes. The second guide offers you quick contact information when you’re ready to report the misconduct.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the two guides below, reach out to our Title IX coordinator. We’ll get you the information and the support you need.
