Report Here

Anyone can share information about alleged incident(s) of sexual misconduct (such as sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, sexual exploitation) to the Title IX Office using our online reporting form, calling us at 540-568-5219, emailing us at titleix@jmu.edu, or in person during regular business hours by coming to our office located on the 4th floor of Holland Yates Hall (formerly Madison hall). 

Please note: University employees (other than those who have been designated as confidential resources) have a duty to disclose to the Title IX Office all reports of sexual misconduct they receive within the course of their employment and may use any of the available reporting methods for sharing information with the Title IX Office.

What happens when Title IX receives a report?

Upon receipt of a report of alleged sexual misconduct, the Title IX Office will contact the complainant (Person who is alleged to be the victim of conduct that could constitute sexual misconduct) to discuss the availability of supportive measures and to explain the process for filing a formal complaint, should the complainant choose.

What is the difference between a report and a Formal Complaint?

A report is not the same as a Formal Complaint, which is a document filed by the complainant alleging sexual misconduct against a respondent and requesting an investigation that will lead to a hearing process or requesting an alternative resolution process.

Accessing resources and support for yourself through Confidential Resources

On campus Confidential Resources such as the Counseling Center, University Health Center, and wellness and prevention coaches in UREC do not disclose information about incidents of sexual misconduct involving JMU community members with Title IX. 

If you want to explore resources and support without immediately reporting to Title IX, there are Confidential Resources on campus who may be able to help.
