Submit a Title IX Complaint

Students or employees who have been the victim of sexual violence or are aware of an incident of sexual violence are encouraged to report it to the WSU Title IX Coordinator.

The Title IX Coordinator will determine if the reported complaint falls within the jurisdiction of the campus.

Any student who reports an incident of sexual violence to the campus will be provided with reasonable supportive measures whether or not the campus has Title IX jurisdiction.

How to Report a Complaint

Reporting is your choice. You have the right to:

  • Make a report to WSU
  • Make a report to law enforcement
  • Pursue a Title IX investigation by the campus
  • Pursue a criminal investigation by law enforcement
  • Take some or none of these actions

You can report sexual misconduct to WSU by submitting an online report form. 

You can also make a report by contacting the WSU Title IX Coordinator, who will respond during business hours.

If you need immediate assistance or want to make a report after hours and on weekends, then reach out to Campus Security.

When to Report

There is no time limit by which incidences of sexual misconduct must be reported to the University.

If you are the victim of sexual misconduct, you are strongly encouraged to report it to the Title IX Office as soon as possible. A delay in reporting may impact the University’s ability to fully investigate or respond to the matter.
