Non-Confidential Reporting Resources
*Reporting a sexual assault can seem daunting. Clinicians from the Sexual Assault Response and Prevention Team can help discuss options surrounding the decision to report interpersonal violence.
When reporting, a person may choose to (1) report the incident to the University so that action can be taken by the University, including under the University’s disciplinary procedures or (2) report the incident to the police. These processes are not mutually exclusive. You can file both a campus report and a police report, or just one or the other. Reports may be made regardless of when the incidents occurred and whether or not they took place on or off campus.
- Georgetown University Online Report
- This online form allows individuals to report concerns or incidents of sexual misconduct, which include sexual assault, harassment, interpersonal violence and stalking.. Individuals may also report directly to Title IX Coordinators by phone, email, or in-person.
- Reporting via this form does not initiate a formal complaint with the Office of Student Conduct, Law Center Ethics Counsel, School of Medicine’s Committee on Students, IDEAA (Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Affirmative Action), or the police.
- If interested in pursuing a formal complaint with any of the above organizations, a Title IX Coordinator or confidential counselor (like those in HES) can help explain the process.
- Information submitted through this form goes directly to the Office of Title IX Compliance. All information is kept private. Providing contact information is optional — reporters may remain anonymous.
- Title IX Coordinators
- Title IX Coordinators are NOT confidential resources.
- Title IX Coordinators are responsible for responding to alleged incidents of sexual misconduct to ensure the safety of individuals and the campus community. They provide survivors with information about on- and off-campus resources as well as monitor the University’s campus climate with respect to sexual misconduct.
- If made aware of an incident of sexual assault, non-confidential GU employees (eg. GUPD, faculty & staff, resident assistants) are required to report the incident to a Title IX Coordinator.
- A Title IX report serves as an account (including identifiable information) of an incident involving sexual misconduct that is shared with the Title IX Coordinator.
- For information on reporting resources and Title IX, visit sexualassault.georgetown.edu.
- Student Conduct
- The Office of Student Conduct is NOT a confidential resource.
- They coordinate the investigation and adjudication of sexual misconduct complaints brought against students.
- They also help students obtain “No Contact” orders if that’s something they choose to pursue. Their Sexual Misconduct Complaint Process Flowchart provides an overview of the sexual misconduct adjudication process. The Sexual Misconduct Procedures page on their website provides more information about rights, responsibilities, procedures, and what students might expect from the process.
