Procedures for Individuals with Reporting Responsibilities

As a member of the University community, you may be approached regarding an incident of sexual misconduct. If this occurs, it is important to listen to the individual’s concerns, and to connect them to the appropriate resources. You should call, email or meet in person with a Title IX coordinator as soon as possible to report the information you receive.

What Needs to be Reported

You need to report any incident or behavior that might fall under Yale’s definition of sexual misconduct: “a range of behaviors including sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, stalking, voyeurism, and any other conduct of a sexual nature that is nonconsensual, or has the purpose or effect of threatening, intimidating, or coercing a person.” For more details, see “Find Policies and Resources”.

If the situation is an emergency, please call 911 or the Yale Police at 203.432.4400.
