Sexual Assault, Sexual Misconduct, Interpersonal Violence, and Sexual Harassment

 Warfield Hall surrounded by lots of trees

If you have experienced sexual or interpersonal violence and are unsure of what to do next, help is available. It is not your fault, and there are resources on campus and in the community that provide support. Learn more about your options and resources.

If you have experienced sexual or interpersonal violence, you have the right to report (or not report) the incident to Miami University or law enforcement or both. Learn more about your reporting options as well as the role and responsibilities of mandatory reporters.

Miami has designated Title IX staff that can provide information on reporting options, help in obtaining secure supportive services, and assistance in accessing resources. Learn more about the University's Title IX staff and how they can assist you.

At Miami, we care about supporting all students, and we are ready to assist with various needs related to sexual assault and interpersonal violence. Visit our guide to find resources on campus and in the community.

Confidential Support

Counselor meets with a student discussing the student's needs.

Confidential Resources are those campus and community professionals who can maintain legally-protected confidentiality within the University for the individual who shared the information. Confidentiality means that information shared by an individual with a confidential resource cannot be revealed to any other person without express permission of the individual, or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
