What to Expect when Filing a Report

What to expect when: Reporting to the University

  • Denison has designated the Title IX Coordinator to oversee complaints of sexual misconduct at the University. An individual who has experienced sexual misconduct has the right to choose whether to report the incident to Denison’s Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinators are specially trained to work with individuals who report sexual misconduct and have knowledge about on- and off-campus resources, services, and options — including the availability of interim protective measures and accommodations. View more information on University support resources.
  • You have the right to receive written information on all of your rights and options, including your rights to receive support resources, proceed with a University investigation, or to file a report with police. The University respects the needs and choices of the Reporting Party. For general information about the University’s response to a report, refer to the full Policy Prohibiting Sex Discrimination, including Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Stalking and Retaliation.

What to expect when: Reporting to Police

  • The criminal process is separate and distinct from the University process. Denison encourages individuals to report incidents of sexual misconduct to the appropriate law enforcement agency. Timely reporting to the police is an important factor in successful investigation and prosecution of crimes, including sexual violence crimes, and may lead to the arrest of an offender or aid in the investigation of other incidents. If a Reporting Party initially wants to file an anonymous police report and obtain a police report number for future consideration, the Title IX office can assist in having a report filed on the Reporting Party’s behalf.
  • Reporting the incident to the police does not mean an individual is obligated to participate in an investigation.

For more information about the University’s process to investigate and adjudicate cases, refer to the full Policy Prohibiting Sex Discrimination, including Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Stalking and Retaliation.
