File a Title IX Complaint

How to File

Students who believe they have been subjected to discrimination or harassment in violation of Title IX should report these concerns immediately to the title IX coordinator. Title IX prohibits retaliation by any student and/or employee against anyone who reports an alleged Title IX violation. If students, staff, or faculty members believe someone they know has experienced sexual misconduct, they should promptly report incidents to the Title IX coordinator.

File a Title IX Complaint

All faculty and staff (including all Resident Assistants, Resident Directors, and Resident Chaplains) who observe or are aware of sexual misconduct are required to immediately report to the Title IX coordinator. The faculty or staff member should not investigate or try and resolve or mediate the situation.

Inquiries may also be directed to the United States Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, District of Columbia Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, S.W. Washington, DC 20202-1475.

Title IX Amnesty

Campbell University encourages the reporting of possible violations of Title IX policy by those subject to the violation or witnesses.

Sometimes students are reluctant to make such reports or participate in a grievance proceeding because they themselves may be accused of a conduct violation, such as drinking. However, it is in the best interests for those subject to sexual misconduct or witnesses of possible violations to report to the Title IX coordinator.

Thus, a student who reports sexual misconduct by another will not be subject to conduct violations or disciplinary proceedings for her/his own personal consumption or possession of alcohol at or near the time of the incident, provided that the reporting student’s actions did not place the health or safety of any other person at risk or violate additional university policies. Only those who are subject to the violation or a witness may receive amnesty, not the alleged respondent.


Questions regarding the application of Title IX and other laws, regulations and policies prohibiting discrimination may be directed to the Title IX coordinator.

If you have questions about whether a particular action or misconduct qualifies as Title IX, please also contact the Title IX coordinator. This will not trigger a formal investigation.
