Reporting Options

Any member of the USI community who believes that they have experienced sexual harassment, including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual exploitation in violation of this Policy is encouraged to report the incident(s) as soon as possible. While reporting is encouraged, Complainant’s have the right to report or not report the incident to the University and/or to law enforcement.

As you consider these reporting options, please keep this important information in mind:

  • Filing a report or disclosing a concern is NOT the same as filing a formal complaint with the Title IX Coordinator

  • Supportive measures are available to you regardless of filing a formal complaint. If a formal complaint is filed, supportive measures are available throughout the resolution process.

Responsible Employees include, but are not limited to, faculty and staff, those with supervisory responsibilities, advisors to student organizations, Public Safety officers and staff, the Dean of Students Office, those in USI Housing and Residence Life including resident assistants, Athletics staff, and all employees serving as Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) when any disclosures to them are made in their capacity as an employee. Additionally, assigned deputies from the Sheriff’s office are also considered Responsible Employees. In limited circumstances, a Confidential Employee may be considered a Responsible Employees if they receive details about an incident of sexual harassment outside of their role as a Confidential Employee.

The above persons are not confidential and must immediately report to the Title IX Office all relevant details about an incident of sexual harassment that involves any community member. These details include the names of the Complainant and Respondent, witnesses, dates, times, locations of the incident. All reports involving sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking made to Responsible Employees will be referred to the Title IX Coordinator so that Supportive Measures may be offered, and rights and options can be explained.
