Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in the university’s programs and activities. Sexual harassment, including sexual violence, and retaliation are forms of discrimination prohibited by Title IX.

If you are experiencing an emergency situation, call 911 to reach the police.

When you make a report, please share the Ws (who, what, when, where). Please do not investigate on your own, handle matters internally, promise confidentiality (if you are a mandatory reporter), or wait to make the report. Reports should be made within 24 hours of learning of the event(s). Please note that making a report is not the same as filing an formal complaint.

The best way to make a report is by emailing the Office of Gender Equity & Inclusion at ogei@uc.edu.
