FILING OPTIONS

At NC State, you have the option to file an anonymous report or a confidential report. You can also choose a report that will lead to either a university investigation or a criminal investigation. Your options include but are not limited to:

  • filing a report with the Title IX Coordinator in the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED)
  • filing a report with NC State Police

Once you submit a report, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the matter and follow the appropriate steps to resolve the case. NC State strives to ensure that students, faculty, staff and visitors are safe and not subject to further harassment or retaliation.

You are not required to file a report to the Raleigh Police; however, if you believe a crime has occurred, you are encouraged to report the incident. If you wish, the Title IX Coordinator in OIED can provide assistance in reporting to the police.

NOT SURE WHERE TO REPORT?

Here are some guidelines:

  • If it is an emergency, call 911.
  • If you have experienced an incident of harassment that may be a crime under state criminal law, such as sexual assault, relationship violence or stalking, you are encouraged to file a report with NC State Police. NC State Police will formally investigate the incident.
  • If you wish to submit a report of a possible Title IX violation, including complaints related to pregnancy discrimination, sex discrimination or any unwelcome sexual advances, a request for sexual favors or other written, verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, report to OIED. An investigator will respond to your complaint.
  • If you experience or witness an incident of bias that may be neither a crime nor a Title IX violation, report to the Bias Impact Response Team.

REPORTING ANONYMOUSLY

You may make an anonymous report to OIED and/or NC State Police with either option above by not disclosing your name, identifying the respondent or requesting any action. However, please note that NC State’s ability to respond or take further action may be impacted by the level of information available about the incident or the individuals involved.
