Reporting Options

There are several options for reporting a concern of sex- or gender-based discrimination, including sexual misconduct. You may wish to disclose a concern to a Deputy Title IX Coordinator or make an online report to the Title IX Office.  

When you report a concern to a Deputy Title IX Coordinator or the Title IX Office, if contact information is provided, staff will generally begin by inviting you to an initial discussion. The purpose of this conversation is to discuss available resources, supportive measures, and resolution options. You can choose what information you would like to share. 

If you are interested in learning more about engaging in an investigation process by bringing forward a formal complaint of sexual misconduct, you can also reach out to the University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC).   
As you consider your options, it is important to keep a few things in mind: 
  • Support is available to you throughout the reporting process. If you would like to talk to a confidential resource before reporting, the SHARE Center is a great place to start. SHARE can provide you with information about reporting options, help schedule and attend meetings, and support you through the process. 
  • Disclosing a concern to a Deputy Title IX Coordinator doesn’t automatically initiate an investigation process. Unless there is an immediate or ongoing risk to individual or community safety, choices regarding next steps will generally be left up to you. 
  • Learn more information about Confidentiality and Privacy as well as Amnesty
Deputy Title IX Coordinators are available to answer any questions you may have about reporting options. 
If you are in immediate danger and need help, call 911. The Yale Police Department (YPD) also has a non-emergency line at 203.432.4400.
