A report of sexual misconduct, protected class discrimination or harassment, or related retaliation may be pursued in different ways. Depending on the nature of the alleged conduct, a complainant or victim may pursue a criminal process, a university process, both processes or neither process. A victim may also decline to notify authorities. We encourage anyone interested in learning more about their options to consult the institution equity site found below.
