Reporting

  • Choosing to make a report, and deciding how to proceed, can be a process that unfolds over time.

    Reporting means providing information to Saint Francis University that an incident of sexual misconduct has occurred. Upon receiving a report, the University’s Title IX team will lead a prompt and equitable response in order to support the individuals involved and to protect the University community. We recognize that the decision whether or not to report sexual misconduct is difficult. There are confidential support resources on campus and in the community available to individuals not ready or wishing to make a report to the University.

    Saint Francis University is committed to providing a variety of welcoming and accessible ways for community members to voice concerns about and report instances of alleged sexual harassment. Reporting an issue is the best way for the community to help you receive the resources, support, and accommodations available at Saint Francis. Not only does reporting help you, communication about issues related to sexual harassment and misconduct can help prevent sexual misconduct and sexual violence. The information community members report can illuminate patterns of behavior, immediate threats to the safety of the community, and systemic issues.

    If you would like to make a report, contact one of the following on-campus reporting options:

    These staff members are trained to help you decide on a next step. These on-campus reporting options are not exclusive of other reporting options (such as reporting to the state police). Should you decide to pursue criminal action for incidents of alleged sexual misconduct, the University will fully support and assist you in making a report to law enforcement agencies. 

    Anonymous Reporting

    Any individual may make an anonymous report concerning an allegation of sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, relationship violence, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking. An individual may report the incident without disclosing his/her name, identifying the Responding party/s, or requesting any action. Depending on the level of information available about the incident or the individuals involved, anonymous reporting may impact the University’s ability to respond or pursue appropriate action.

    Anonymous reports may be made by telephone at 1-888-297-9325 or online at EthicsPoint.com.

    All reports will go to the Title IX Coordinator for review. EthicsPoint is a service that allows anyone to report suspected misconduct or other issues with complete anonymity or confidentiality. This service allows the person making the report and university administrators to confer about additional details, while the reporting party's identity remains anonymous and unknown to the University.

    EthicsPoint utilizes its own secure servers, outside of the university network, as well as their own call center. While the reports will be forwarded to University administrators for appropriate review and action, the source of all reports submitted to EthicsPoint will remain confidential and will not be shared with University administrators without your permission.
