Report the Incident to USU

Federal educational law and USU policy prohibit sexual misconduct by any employee or student. Regardless of when or where an incident occurred, you can report it to the Title IX Coordiniator. USU investigates accusations to determine whether a policy violation occurred, and holds those who violate university policy accountable. The Title IX Coordinator recommends you utilize an advocate to support you throughout the Title IX process.

This office will keep your experience as private as possible, but may share some information with USU employees necessary to investigate the incident or provide you with services. The university can also help you access accommodations to help you succeed in school, including no-contact orders on campus, academic accommodations or changes to on-campus housing, class, or work schedules. 

USU Title IX Coordinator: 435-797-1266 | Old Main, Room 161

Report to Police

Sexual violence causes a great deal of emotional trauma, and USU Police officers are sensitive to the needs of those reporting. If you request they not initiate an investigation, they will honor that request as much as possible. As part of the university, USU Police forwards all reports of sexual misconduct to USU's Title IX Coordinator. You can pursue a police investigation and the university's Title IX process at the same time.
