Title IX Report an Incident/File a Complaint

At Kent State University, we believe it’s important that individuals are made aware of their rights and all of their options so that they can make decisions for themselves. An individual who has experienced gender/sexual discrimination and harassment is the person best positioned to determine which options will help them feel safe, supported and able to heal. This may include requesting a formal investigation and sometimes it does not.

If you believe you have experienced gender/sexual discrimination and harassment (i.e., gender discrimination, gender/sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, stalking and intimate partner violence), contact any of the following:

If you learn about another community member (i.e., student, faculty, staff, or guest) who experienced some type of gender/sexual discrimination and harassment, please contact the Office of Compliance, EOAA so that our staff may ensure this community member is informed of resources and support options. You may also wish to review the university’s policy.
