Reporting to Tulane
What happens if I report to Tulane?
When a person experiences sexual violence, it can feel as though your power--your choices--have been taken away from you. When you disclose to Tulane, we want you to get your power back. That's why reporting to Tulane means that you have choices to make about what the next steps look like. For some people, reporting is to ensure that your experience is recognized; for others, reporting is a means to get the support you need to feel safe and healthy; or, reporting can be a way to initiate our conduct process because you want to hold whomever harmed you accountable for their behavior. It could be all three. This is what you can expect when you disclose to Tulane:
- The report is sent to Case Management and Victim Support Services, who will reach out to you to offer support. They will explain the Tulane conduct process to you and will connect you to our Office of Student Conduct and can connect you to the police. You choose whether to proceed forward with a conduct case or a criminal case.
- There are some instances, though, where the information you share is so serious that the university needs to move forward without your participation because there is a threat to the community. You will be told about this decision, and you can make choices about what you want to share or not.
- You can make an anonymous report using the form below.
- The report also goes to the Title IX Coordinator, who is responsible for ensuring that every report receives a response and then collects data on incidents of violence so that we can track where, when, and who these incidents impact.
