In 2015/16, the Title IX Office received 233 reports. 231 reports were related to gender discrimination and gender based harm. Many reports received by the Title IX Office include more than one concern or allegation of misconduct.

It is important to note that in many instances, the Title IX Office receives more than one report about the same incident or affected party from more than one responsible employee. We value these additional reports because they may help us to gather more information. Additionally, they reflect the growing awareness of the campus about reporting responsibilities and the campus commitment to preventing Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment. For the sake of clarity, our office aggregates the various reports received about each unique incident.
