Title IX

Filing under Title IX is a deeply personal decision. If you choose to file, we strongly encourage everyone to file federally so the Department of Education has a record of the complaint. You do not have to be a survivor to file Title IX. If you are a parent, ally, faculty, or other, you can file federally on behalf of survivors who experienced sexual harassment, assault and/or discrimination.

If you are undocumented, you can still report and are protected under Title IX and the Clery Act. Deportation threats from your institution and disclosure of your immigration status would violate Title IX and the Clery Act. You can also file anonymously with the federal government.
