In the informal pathway, the complainant submits form and voluntary resolution efforts are conducted.

In the formal pathway, the complainant files complaint via web form, a decision maker makes initial assessment and appoints investigator.

The investigator conducts neutral fact-finding investigation and prepares report for review by parties and decision maker.

Decision-maker holds meeting with members of the Advisory Committee on Equity and makes determination as to whether there is a policy violation and any appropriate sanctions.

Each party has the right to appeal. Please note, Title IX Harassment pathways may follow a different process; consult Title IX coordinator.
