Informal Remedies: Remedies may include safety planning, academic accommodations, housing relocation, safety planning, issuing no contact order. Requesting informal remedies, and options for follow up through the university’s disciplinary process or with pressing criminal charges. Informal remedies do not preclude formal discipline

Bringing a Formal Complaint: A formal complaint will lead to an investigation and can result in disciplinary action. Bringing a complaint is often the best way to seek protection from future harm. The student bringing the complaint retains considerable, although not total, control as the process unfolds.

Degree of Privacy: The degree of privacy the university can offer is to individuals reporting sexual misconduct depends on the context.

Anonymous reports take place when your identity is not known to the staff member receiving the report.

Most reports are kept private. The staff member receiving the report has a duty to inform his or her supervisor or the Title IX Coordinator in order to ensure appropriate steps are taken to respond to the report. Certain non-identifying details may need to be released to the public in order to ensure campus safety or to comply with certain laws, but the privacy of the parties involved will be protected to the fullest extent permitted by law.

In certain circumstances, reports can be kept confidential. This means no details will be shared by the individual taking the report without your consent. The law grants certain types of professionals (e.g., counselors, physicians, attorneys acting in the scope of their practice) the opportunity to keep communications with their clients confidential. Only certain staff on campus can offer confidentiality.
