Reporting FAQ

  • What should expect after I report a Title IX incident? Expand dropdown
    • If someone discloses or shares conduct or an incident that is or may be prohibited under our Title IX policy as sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, or sex-based discrimination, your report or complaint will be handled sensitively and privately by the Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Office (formerly Title IX Office) staff.
    • The Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Office will attempt to reach out by email to the person(s) who have shared they have experienced prohibited conduct to offer support and information about Title IX and how the Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Office can help. A response to the Title IX Coordinator's email outreaches are not required or obligated.
    • The Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Office can offer support services or remedial measures for reporting person(s) to work to provide needed support and to address immediate safety concerns. Such support services may include reasonable academic accommodations.
    • The Title IX Coordinator will discuss options available to address the conduct, including the formal grievance process and informal processes to address the asserted prohibited conduct; and options to also report to law enforcement, if the reporting person(s) so chooses.
    • Retaliation against a person for a good faith report and complaint under Title IX or for participation in any Title IX investigation or proceeding under EMU's Title IX Policy is also a form of Prohibited Conduct. Retaliation is prohibited, unlawful, and will not be tolerated, and will be addressed through a formal grievance process. The Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Office will support reporting person(s) from retaliation, and will respond to complaints or reports of retaliation through the Title IX formal grievance process.
