Any person may file a report of sex discrimination, sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking), and other incidents of power-based violence or retaliation by completing the following online form: 

Sex Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct/Power-Based Violence Report Form

Reports may be submitted in person, by phone, in writing, electronically, or anonymously and may be submitted by complainants, third parties or bystanders to the Title IX Coordinator.

If the university is notified of sex discrimination and/or sexual misconduct, we will:

  1. Take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate the report/incident
     
  2. Take prompt action to end the prohibited conduct and resolve the situation
     
  3. Take appropriate steps to prevent recurrence of future incidents

See the Sexual Misconduct and Power Based Violence Policy for detailed information regarding how the University addresses reports of sex discrimination, sexual misconduct other incidents of power-based violence and retaliation.  The procedures for resolution of alleged violations of the Policy are addressed in the Sexual Misconduct and Power-Based Violence Grievance Procedures

 

Retaliation

Retaliation is defined as acts or attempted acts for the purpose of interfering with any report, investigation, or proceeding, or as retribution or revenge against anyone who has reported sexual discrimination, sexual misconduct or power-based violence or who has participated (or is expected to participate) in any manner in an investigation, or proceeding under the Sexual Misconduct and Power-Based Violence Policy. Prohibited retaliatory acts include, but are not limited to, intimidation, threats, coercion, or discrimination. Title IX prohibits Retaliation as does ULM’s Sexual Misconduct and Power-Based Violence Policy. Retaliation should be promptly reported to the Title IX Coordinator.

Confidential Advisors are available to help. Confidential Advisors are designated individuals who have been trained to aid a person involved in a sexual misconduct complaint in the resolution process as a confidential resource.

Supportive Measures

Supportive measures are Non-disciplinary, non-punitive individualized services are offered as appropriate, as reasonably available, and without fee or charge to the parties before or after the filing of a Formal Complaint or where no Formal Complaint has been filed. Such measures are designed to restore or preserve equal access to the education program or activity without unreasonably burdening the other party, including measures designed to protect the safety of all parties or the Institution’s educational environment, or deter sexual harassment. Supportive Measures may include counseling, extensions of deadlines or other course-related adjustments, modifications of work or class schedules, campus escort services, mutual restrictions on contact between the parties, changes in work or housing locations, leaves of absence, increased security and monitoring of certain areas of the campus, and other similar measures.

If the incident or situation is criminal in nature, immediately contact University Police Department or the local police where the incident occurred. The University Police Department is located at Filhiol Hall, 3811 DeSiard Street, 318-342-5350 or 911 for emergencies.
