Making a Report
Any person may report conduct constituting possible prohibited conduct to the Title IX Coordinator in person, by mail, by telephone, by email or via the online reporting form at the top of this page. The Title IX Coordinator will promptly contact the harmed party to check on their well-being, discuss the availability of supportive measures, and explain the process for filing a formal complaint (if applicable). Reports are not the same as complaints, and making a report will not automatically initiate a formal complaint process.
Below is information for students on how to report sexual misconduct and access resources and support through our office. The Title IX Office is also available to assist employees in making reports and filing formal complaints. Please reach out to the Title IX Coordinator, Bindu Jayne, at (610) 690-3720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
