Reporting Options

Oxy encourages everyone to report all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation to the College.

When you come forward, you don’t have to know how you want to proceed or even how to label what happened. You have the right to an advisor of your choice to support and accompany you through every step of the process. The Civil Rights & Title IX Office will make sure you have access to the support and services you need and that you know all your options. You do not have to share the identity of the other person or file a formal complaint in order to learn about your rights and options through the Civil Rights & Title IX Office.

If you’re not sure that you’re ready to talk to the Civil Rights & Title IX Office, consider contacting a confidential resource. Find a list of confidential reporting options here. Confidential resources will not reveal what you tell them to anyone without your consent. They also can provide you with support and link you to services. Anonymous reports concerning an act of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation can be made via this anonymous reporting form

Please know that:

  • Oxy’s Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation Policy applies to everyone – students, faculty, staff, administrators, and campus visitors.

  • Your information will be kept private. Only people who have a direct need to know in order to address and resolve the case will have access to your information.

  • Retaliation against anyone who makes a report, cooperates with an investigation, or participates in the disciplinary process is a violation of College policy.
