Reports to Law Enforcement

Students who believe they have experienced sexual misconduct or interpersonal violence may report both to the University’s Deputy Title IX Coordinator and pursue criminal charges against the person or persons they believe to have committed the crime. A criminal charge and a University investigation may be pursued at the same time. Support and resources are available regardless of criminal charges, University investigation or University disciplinary action.

Please note: A report should be made on behalf of any person who is incapacitated and unable to report. Reports may be made by students who have experienced a Title IX violation or others on their behalf. Anonymous reports will be accepted; however, the University’s options for investigating or resolving anonymous reports may be limited because of the unique challenges presented.

Resource Guide

If anyone is in immediate danger or needs immediate help, call 911.

There are many resources and reporting options available to students and employees, both in the University and in the community. Any of these resources can work independently, or in a coordinated response plan. Learn more at Miami's Sexual Assault, Sexual Misconduct, Interpersonal Violence, and Sexual Harassment website.

Note: Reporting to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator, Responsible Employees and/or Law Enforcement will put the University on Notice of an allegation. Please be aware that a criminal investigation is separate and distinct from Miami University’s institutional response. You may choose to report to both the University and Law Enforcement, one, or neither of these options, depending on your individual decision. These options are available simultaneously, and the University will cooperate with law enforcement agencies if a criminal investigation occurs.
