Initial Assessment of a Report

This slideshow is not enabled

The investigative process is initiated when the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) receives a report of an alleged violation of this policy. Upon reviewing the report, the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) will respond to any immediate health or safety concerns raised by the report. The Title IX Coordinator (or designee) will conduct an assessment to determine the appropriate action necessary.

Following the initial assessment, the Title IX Coordinator may take any of the following actions:

  • If the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) determines that the report, even if substantiated, would not rise to the level of a policy violation; the nature and circumstances of the report do not make it appropriate for an investigation; or, after consultation with the complainant about the complainant’s preferences regarding participation, the Title IX Coordinator determines that there will be insufficient information to investigate the matter, the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) may dismiss the complaint.
  • If the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) determines that the complaint is outside the scope of this policy and/or most appropriately handled by another office, the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) may refer the complaint to another office for review.
  • If the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) determines that the report would, if substantiated, constitute a violation of this policy, the Title IX Coordinator (or designee) will determine appropriate interim measures and initiate an investigation or mediation process.
