Reporting Options

It is common to have questions about the reporting process. The OVA Coordinator can discuss reporting options and what to expect in each process. OVA believes that the decision to report should be the choice of the student, and OVA will support the student in whatever choice they decide is best for them.  Below is some basic information on reporting at each level: to the OVA coordinator, to the Dean of Students or Human Resources, or to Law Enforcement (Campus Police).  Finally, read about your option to Report Online.

 

Reporting to the OVA Coordinator

If you report to the OVA Coordinator in person, she can assist you in completing the report form, anonymously if preferred.  Your report can be anonymous, and you can still receive servies of the OVA.
