What to Expect when Filing a Report

What to expect when: Reporting to the University

  • Denison has designated the Director of Civil Rights & Title IX as the Title IX Coordinator, who is responsible for overseeing all complaints of sexual misconduct at Denison. 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 Sex Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy.

What to expect when: Reporting to Police

  • The criminal process is separate and distinct from the university’s process. Denison encourages individuals to report incidents of criminal sexual misconduct to the appropriate law enforcement agency. Timely reporting to the police is an important factor in the 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.
  • Reporting the incident to the police does not mean an individual is obligated to participate in an investigation.
