Title IX: Reporting & Awareness

If a student reports that they have been a victim of sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct, the student has options on how to proceed. The most important thing is that the student is safe and is not in imminent danger.

If a Student Is in Distress:

  1. Listen non-judgmentally. Accept the experience as the student describes it. Articulate clearly that you believe the student and want to provide support in any way you can.
  2. Validate the student’s feelings.
  3. Assure the student that it is not their fault. Self-blame is common among victims of sexual violence.
  4. Do not make judgmental comments. Do not comment on what could have been done differently or make statements that imply that the student could have avoided the harassment or assault.
  5. Be sympathetic. However, do not let your own emotions get in the way of supporting the student.
  6. Discuss options. Show them the sexual harassment policy.
  7. Get support. Do not hesitate to seek advice from individuals who are in a position to help. It is not necessary to give names or details of the incident to obtain initial support and to learn more about options.
