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.
- 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.
