How to File a Report

Any person (student, university employee, or third party, including those not affiliated with the university) may file a complaint against a student or a student organization.

All complaints against students or student organizations involving sexual harassment or misconduct should be made to:

Associate Dean of Students/Title IX Coordinator
Administration Building (AD), Room 238
765-285-1545

Complaints against a student for sexual harassment or misconduct also may be filed with the University Police Department by calling 765-285-1111.

The University recognizes that graduate assistants occupy roles as students and as employees with teaching, administrative, and/or research functions.

When a complaint is made against a graduate assistant that alleges sexual harassment or misconduct, the allegation will be carefully examined to determine how best to proceed. However, complaints typically will proceed under the procedures outlined in the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities (Code) with the understanding that the circumstances of the complaint, once resolved, may have repercussions on the student’s employment.

The Statement on Sexual Harassment applies to complaints against employees.

Complaints of sexual harassment or misconduct against an employee should be filed with:

Office of the General Counsel
Administration Building (AD), Room 335
765-285-5162

or

University Police Department

University Police Department
