Oxy encourages everyone to report all forms of sexual misconduct to the College and/or to the police. Making a report means telling someone in authority what happened – in person, by phone, in writing, or by email or text.
Is this an emergency? Find a list of police and other emergency reporting options here.
When you tell any faculty, staff, administrator or residence hall staff what happened, they are required to notify the Civil Rights & Title IX coordinator. If you are a Responsible Employee, please make a report via this reporting form. Please keep in mind that this doesn’t mean that any disciplinary proceedings will immediately begin, or that the other person will be contacted or notified a report has been made.
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. Find a list of on-campus reporting options here. 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 – not the police, not the Civil Rights & Title IX Office – without your consent. They also can provide you with support and link you to services. Anonymous reports concerning an act of sexual harassment, sexual violence, stalking or intimate partner violence can be made via this anonymous reporting form.
Please know that:
Oxy’s sexual and interpersonal misconduct policy applies to everyone – students, faculty, staff, administrators, and campus visitors.
It’s never too late to report sexual misconduct.
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.
You can report instances of sexual misconduct to the Civil Rights & Title IX Office in person, by phone, in writing, or by email.
Upon receipt of a report, the Civil Rights & Title IX Coordinator will reach out to you to offer measures and services Oxy has available to support you – including counseling, No Contact Letters, and other accommodations - as well as inform you of the steps the College can take to address your situation and prevent it from happening again.
