You have the option to report to the university, to law enforcement, to both, or neither.  The university's Our Community Matters resource guide provides information about how to report to the university and/or to law enforcement, preserving evidence, helpful resources, and about how the university will review reports it receives.  The resources, support, and protective measures described on this website and in the resource guide are available to you even if you decide not to participate in university or law enforcement processes.

The University also prohibits retaliation. Contact the Equity, Civil Rights and Title IX Office if you believe you are being retaliated against because you raised concerns about sexual or gender-based misconduct or participated in an investigation of such concerns.
