What happens when I report?

Reporting DOES NOT mean a formal investigation will automatically be launched. One of our main goals is to ensure that all parties receive information regarding their resources and options for resolving these issues.

What do I need to report?

This policy applies to allegations of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation that take place on UNI property or at university-sponsored events, regardless of their location. This policy may also apply to allegations of discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, and retaliation that occur off-campus or to actions online when the Title IX Officer determines that the off-campus or online conduct could have an on-campus impact or impact on the educational mission of the University.
