    Title IX

    More Information About Title-IX

    Report gender-based discrimination, harassment, bullying or any incident under Title IX. Submitting a report does NOT mean a Title IX investigation will occur. Before anything happens, the designated Title IX investigator will contact you using the information you provide and will share options for support and interventions, including a TIX investigation. The investigator will explain the TIX process and answer your questions before notifying others or proceeding with an investigation. You are not committed to any particular path just because you submitted this report.
