Students and employees who have experienced sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, non-consensual sexual contact, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, sexual exploitation, and stalking have the option to report to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access (EOA) to receive support and assistance from the University. EOA responds in a prompt and equitable manner to reports of sexual misconduct and discrimination and is responsible for overseeing OSU’s compliance with civil rights and affirmative action laws, regulations, and policies. EOA is OSU’s Title IX office.
If you choose to report to EOA, you may have a support person (such as a parent, friend or advocate) with you during any meeting with the office. EOA is able to provide a range of supportive measures, the option for an informal resolution of a concern, or a formal investigation into a complaint when the information reported suggests a violation of OSU Policy. Supportive measures include referrals to resources, academic supports, on-campus housing relocation, and university no contact orders, and are available regardless of whether or not an individual participates in an EOA investigation or resolution process. EOA never requires a person impacted by sexual misconduct to meet with or disclose any information to the office, but may need some general information in order to provide supportive measures.
In rare circumstance, if information reported to EOA suggests that someone at OSU is a threat to campus safety or has engaged in a pattern of problematic behavior, EOA may initiate an investigation even if you ask EOA not to. If EOA decides that an investigation is necessary, you will be invited, but not required, to participate in the investigation.
EOA does not share information with law enforcement (without a complainant’s consent), except as required to report concerns of child abuse/neglect, immediate safety concerns on campus, or threats of harm to individuals. You have the right to report to law enforcement in addition to, or instead of, reporting to EOA. EOA can provide assistance to you if you choose to file a report with law enforcement and can coordinate a joint interview if you would like to report to both EOA and law enforcement simultaneously.
Students and employees who have experienced sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, non-consensual sexual touching, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, sexual exploitation, and stalking have the option to report to law enforcement which may start a criminal investigation. If possible, you should try to report the misconduct to the law enforcement agency where the incident occurred.
