REPORTING SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

Any individual who believes that an employee or student of the University, including him or herself, has been subjected to sexual misconduct is encouraged to immediately follow the applicable reporting and investigation procedures and may also pursue criminal, civil, and/or administrative remedies provided by federal and state law. The University encourages all individuals to report possible sexual misconduct that they suffer or observe, and requires responsible employees of the University to do so.

The purpose of these investigation procedures is to provide prompt and equitable processes for addressing and investigating incidents of sexual misconduct allegedly committed against students and employees. A lengthy period of time between an alleged occurrence and an investigation may make fact-finding more difficult; therefore, individuals are encouraged to raise concerns and complaints as soon as possible.

The University provides different procedures, described below, for investigating and adjudicating Requests for Investigation of sexual misconduct allegedly committed by students. The first two options address Requests for Investigation alleging misconduct other than sexual violence: an Informal Conciliation Process and a Formal Investigation Process, and a third process is available only for Title IX Sexual Harassment Requests for Investigation.

If unsure about the appropriate process for a Request for Investigation or unsure whether to file a Request for Investigation, please contact the University’s Title IX Coordinator at ldement@rvu.edu for an initial meeting, wherein the Title IX Coordinator will discuss the options and answer any questions.

The University highly recommends that the Reporting Party of sexual violence seek immediate medical attention after the incident. The Title IX Coordinator will provide, if needed, referrals to a medical professional.

In addition, please notify the RVU Security Department, as well as the police jurisdiction where the assault occurred or 911.
