Why Report

  • An incident has negatively affected your academics, employment, or student involvement.
  • You have concerns about your safety or the safety of others.
  • You need assistance and support, but you do not want to disclose details or names.
  • You would like a No Contact Order to prohibit communication between you and another party.
  • You would like the University to take action and investigate the incident.

Reporting a Violation

When initiating a complaint, an individual need not know whether they wish to request any particular course of action, nor how to label what happened. Choosing to make a complaint and deciding how to proceed after making the complaint can be a process that unfolds over time.

The University recognizes that deciding among these options can be difficult. For individuals wanting to report an incident confidentially, they should speak with our on-campus mental health counselors in the Student Counseling Services, campus health service providers in the Student Medical Services, WTAMU's Employee Assistance Program provider, or off-campus resources. However, if confidentiality is requested WTAMU will make every effort to respect this request in the context of providing a safe and non-discriminatory environment for all employees, students and visitors.

All WTAMU students and employees are required to share information reported to them. Not reporting could result in termination and criminal charges.
