Report an Act of Sexual Misconduct

Reporting an incident of sexual misconduct is a difficult, yet important decision. If an act of sexual misconduct has been committed against you or someone you know, especially an act of sexual violence, we strongly urge you to consider documenting the incident. Making a report may help with recovery, provide support and services, and prevent the offender from committing further violence. Incidents of sexual misconduct may be reported to a confidential resource such as the YWCA of South Hampton Roads, NSU Counseling Center, or the Spartan Health Center; or, to the NSU Title IX Officer, University Police or to local law enforcement agencies.  Reporting options are not mutually exclusive (both campus and criminal reports may be filed concurrently). Staff members will provide resources and support options to you. Additionally, they will review the options for filing a formal complaint or documenting the incident and not taking formal action.

If a survivor discusses the incident with a university staff, or faculty member, with the exception of confidential reporting resources (YWCA of South Hampton Roads, NSU Counseling Center, or the Spartan Health Center), the staff or faculty member is required to forward any report of sexual misconduct to the NSU Title IX Coordinator.
