Incident Reporting

NEED HELP DECIDING TO REPORT?

The University encourages individuals to immediately consult with or report incidents of sex discrimination, sexual harassment (including sexual assault) or sexual misconduct to the university Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinators.

Students may also report incidents of sex discrimination, sexual harassment (including sexual violence) or sexual misconduct to any university Responsible Employee, who is then required to promptly notify any of the above Title IX Coordinators of the reported incident.  A university employee who witnesses or is informed about incidents of sexual discrimination, sexual harassment (including sexual violence), and/or related retaliation is responsible for promptly reporting the incident.  Other members of the campus community and the public should also promptly report such incidents.

CONFIDENTIAL REPORTING OPTIONS

In most cases, psychologist/counselors in the SHSU Counseling Center (936-294-1720) are not required to, nor may, report an incident that in any way identifies the employee or student concerned without their consent.  However, if an imminent harm situation is present, the counselor must take action to protect whoever is at risk.

REPORTING TO LAW ENFORCEMENT

Individuals have the option of notifying law enforcement authorities including university police, local law enforcement, or law enforcement located in the city/location in which the incident occurred.
