Sexual Assault & Relationship Violence
There are several reporting options for victims of sexual assault and relationship violence, including reporting to campus or local law enforcement, going through the student conduct system, and/or filing a Title IX complaint. Campus authorities will assist in notifying law enforcement if requested. Law enforcement involvement can also be declined.
Most, but not all, University employees are required to report names and details of any incident of sexual violence that has been brought to their attention to the Title IX Coordinator or designated Deputy Coordinators on their campus for further investigation.

Employee Reporting Responsibilities
Faculty and staff are often sought out by students to address issues outside of the curricular and co-curricular involvement with the university. When these issues include sexual assault or relationship violence, faculty and staff members are expected to inform the designated campus Title IX officials. For more information, see Responsible Employee section at:
In some instances, faculty or staff members may also be a Campus Security Authority (CSA), a term used in the Jeanne Clery Act to describe someone who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities. CSAs are in positions that, due to the nature of their relationships with students, are more likely to receive reports from students who were victims or witnesses to a crime. This site outlines the responsibilities of CSAs.
