Reporting Options & Guidance
Looking to file a report with the University through the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity or learn more about your reporting options? Here’s how to connect with our office:
- Call (970) 491-1715 to speak with someone in the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity and/or schedule an appointment
- Submit an online report
- Email Titleix@colostate.edu
- Visit our office in-person at 123 Student Services Building (Corner of University Ave & Libby Coy Way)
Providing information to CSU’s Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity does not mean you are filing a report with law enforcement, however, if a safety risk to the greater campus community is identified, the University may contact law enforcement. The University will attempt to notify impacted individuals prior to contacting law enforcement. If you wish to make a separate report to a law enforcement agency, you have the right to contact the appropriate agency before, during, or even after reporting information to the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity. The Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity is available to work with an impacted party to coordinate reporting to law enforcement, facilitating the investigation process.
In an emergency, dial: 9-1-1
If you are submitting a report online through the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity website, here are some helpful tips:
- The reporting form cannot be saved while it is in progress. Consider drafting information in a separate word document, then copying and pasting it into the ‘Description/Narrative’ section. This will allow you to take a break from writing if needed, without losing the progress you’ve made.
- When completing the ‘Description/Narrative’, provide enough information for staff in the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity to understand your concerns or questions. You can decide how much information you are comfortable with sharing. Staff from the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity will follow up with you upon receiving a report to discuss resources and reporting options. If additional information is needed, staff will arrange for a time to collect that from you.
- If you are not a Responsible Employee, you may remain anonymous when reporting through the online form. It is very helpful to have your contact information and name in the event additional follow-up is needed. The University may not be able to respond as effectively without the ability to gain additional information. Therefore, sharing your contact information is strongly encouraged. Your identity as the reporting party will be guarded to the best of our ability.
- When an online report is submitted, it goes to staff within the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity. An investigator with Title IX will reach out to the individual/s identified as being impacted to offer resources, reporting options, and review potential next steps prior to any additional action being taken.
As a reminder, all CSU employees and volunteers including faculty, staff, and students acting in their employment or volunteer roles, are designated as Responsible Employees. Responsible Employees are required to report any and all information related to incidents of sexual misconduct and/or interpersonal violence to the Office of Title IX Programs and Gender Equity. The University encourages Responsible Employees to remind students of their obligation to report information of this nature and to make a report as early as possible (within 24 hours of disclosure). For more information about Responsible Employee reporting obligations, please see the definition by clicking here.
