Deciding Whether to File a Formal Report
The decision to file a formal report or complaint about sexual violence and sexual assault is a personal choice. We're here to help you understand your options and the resources available, whether you decide to report or not.
- For students, your confidential advocate can explain your option in detail and answer questions, so you can make the decision that's right for you. Talking to the advocate doesn't constitute filing an official report about sexual violence. The details of your experience won't be shared with anyone without your permission.
- For faculty members, other academic appointees and staff employees, contact the experienced staff on your campus for confidential counseling and help, and information about where to go to file a report. Faculty members may also contact their Office of Human Resources regarding their academic rights.
