    Internal Complaint Process FAQ

The university will protect confidentiality by not disclosing the complainant’s information to anyone outside the university, except as required by law. Within the university, a complainant’s request for confidentiality must be balanced by the university with its responsibility to provide a safe and non-discriminatory environment for the university community. Where the university cannot take disciplinary action against a student because of a complainant’s insistence upon confidentiality, the university’s response will be limited, but it will pursue other steps where available to limit the effects of the alleged sexual misconduct and attempt to prevent its recurrence.

Law Enforcement Reporting:
Sexual misconduct may be reported to campus or local law enforcement agencies. University officials are available to provide assistance with making such reports, upon request. Reporting to law enforcement is not required.

Students who are considering filing a university report or law enforcement report of sexual misconduct are encouraged to preserve any evidence of sexual misconduct. Examples of evidence that would assist in an investigation of sexual misconduct include such things as:

  • clothing worn during the incident including undergarments;
  • sheets, bedding, and condoms, if used;
  • list of witnesses with contact information;
  • text messages, call history, social media posts; and
  • pictures of injuries.
