File a Report

Case Western Reserve University has a designated Title IX Coordinator to oversee all aspects of sexual harassment reports, investigations, and prevention and education programs. The university encourages individuals who experienced sexual misconduct to report it to the Office of Equity.

Where to Report

Reports of Sexual Harassment can be made directly to the Office of Equity at the below contact information. Individuals can call, email, or walk-in to request a meeting with an investigator to make a report or can provide a written summary of the report to the email address below.

In addition, complainants can report to any faculty or staff member including, but not limited to, Office for Inclusion, Diversity, and Equal Opportunity, Office of Student Affairs, CWRU Police Department, and Residence Life. Faculty and Staff will then notify the Title IX Coordinator of the Complaint. 

After hours reports can be made to to Residence Life On-Call (On-campus residents) or CWRU Police (On-Campus and Off-Campus) at 216.368.3333. Residence Life On-Call contact information is available at the entrance of each residence hall and on each residential student's myHousing portal. Residence Life and/or CWRU Police will notify the Title IX Coordinator of the Complaint.

Modification to Office of Equity Operations During COVID-19

Please note the Office of Equity has modified it's operations in response to COVID-19 and asks individuals to email or call to request a phone or video conference meeting instead of walk-in appointments. 

Anonymous Reports

Reports can be submitted anonymously through the Integrity Hotline to the Title IX Coordinator. Doing so may limit the university’s ability to respond comprehensively and could limit the University’s ability to offer certain supportive measures or resolution. The university will need to know the name of the Complainant in order to implement supportive measures. The Title IX Coordinator or designee will not disclose the name of the Complainant and will keep the supportive measures confidential.

If the Complainant wants to initiate the formal grievance process, they cannot stay anonymous.

For university faculty, staff, officials and student employees

All Case Western Reserve University employees (faculty, staff, administrators, resident assistants, teaching assistants and orientation leaders) are required to report actual or suspected discrimination or harassment to appropriate officials immediately, though there are some limited exceptions.

In order to make informed choices, it is important to be aware of confidentiality and mandatory reporting requirements when consulting campus resources. On campus, some resources may maintain confidentiality and are not required to report actual or suspected discrimination or harassment. They may offer options and resources without any obligation to inform an outside agency or campus official unless a Complainant has requested the information be shared. Confidential Resources are available here.

If a Complainant expects formal action in response to their allegations, reporting to any Mandated Reporter can connect them with resources to report crimes and/or policy violations, and these employees will immediately pass reports to the Title IX Coordinator (and/or police, if desired by the Complainant), who will take action when an incident is reported to them.

Faculty, Staff, Officials, and Student Employees can report actual or suspected discrimination or harassment to the Office of Equity at the contact information below. Advise for reporting can be found here.
