Report to the University
The university responds promptly when there is an incident report concerning discrimination or sexual misconduct. When you file an incident report, the Office of Equity will contact the person who experienced the sexual misconduct or discrimination to provide information about options through the office, including supportive measures, resources, reporting options, and the investigation process.
Privacy of Information Shared
Information shared with the Office of Equity is kept private, but may be shared on a limited basis within the university to provide supportive measures or to investigate a formal complaint. When there is a formal complaint, the person who experienced the sexual misconduct or discrimination cannot remain anonymous.
Amnesty for Student Code Violations
USU offers amnesty for drug and alcohol policy violations of the Student Code when a student reports an incident of sexual misconduct, whether they experienced or witnessed it. Those students who participate in the Office of Equity grievance process concerning sexual misconduct incidents are also granted amnesty, though they may be encouraged to participate in health education interventions.
How to Report
Choose from the options below.
Reports about sexual misconduct and discrimination can be made anonymously. However, anonymous reports do not always contain enough information to pursue an investigation that can lead to disciplinary action. Reporting employees are the only individuals who are required to include their name when filing a report about sexual misconduct.
Report Sexual Misconduct
Report an incident involving an alleged violation of USU Sexual Misconduct Policy 339, 339A, or 339B, which include: sexual harassment, relationship violence, sexual assault, and sex-based stalking. You can file a report on your own behalf or on behalf of anyone who may have experienced sexual misconduct.
Report an incident of discrimination or harassment based on protected categories of people including: race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, pregnancy, sexual orientation or gender identity/expression, genetic information or in retaliation. You can file a report on your own behalf or on behalf of anyone who may have experienced discrimination.
