Title IX requires the university to designate a Title IX Coordinator to monitor and oversee overall Title IX compliance. Your campus Title IX Coordinator is available to explain and discuss:

  • your right to file a criminal complaint (sexual assault and violence);
  • the university’s complaint process, including the investigation process;
  • how confidentiality is handled;
  • available resources and supportive measures, both on and off campus;
  • and other related matters.

If you have a complaint against an HSU student or employee for sexual harassment, sex discrimination, or sexual assault, you should contact the Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for Title IX compliance for matters involving students and employees, including training, education, communication, and administration of grievance procedures for all Title IX complaints.

If you are in the midst of an emergency, please call the police immediately by dialing 9-1-1.
