SCU recognizes that choosing to report an incident and deciding how to proceed after making the report can be a process that unfolds over time. Reports should be made promptly, but there is no time limitation on reporting. Reports of harassment or discrimination will be investigated in a manner that is prompt, adequate, and impartial. A person does not have to decide whether or not to request disciplinary action at the time a report is made.

If you have witnessed or experienced discrimination, harassment, or sexual violence including sexual assault, you should contact one of the listed persons or offices for assistance in resolving a complaint.

There are confidential and non-confidential reporting options available. Confidential resources include on- and off-campus mental counselors, health service providers, local rape crisis counselors, domestic violence resources, and members of the clergy and chaplains. Confidential means that what you share will not be communicated with anyone else.

To report an incident, please submit a request for support and assistance.
