Title IX - Find Resources and Support

Find Resources and Support

Title IX and Sexual Misconduct

If you have experienced sexual assault or violence, discussing and/or reporting the incident can be a difficult decision. In contrast, learning that an allegation of sexual assault or violence has been filed against you can be stressful and emotional. Salve Regina provides a range of resources, services and support for students and employees who have experienced sexual violence or who have been accused of perpetrating sexual violence.

Title IX Coordinator

Salve Regina's Title IX coordinator receives and manages reports of sexual misconduct from the campus community, including visitors, and also oversees and facilitates the resolution process to promote accountability.

After receiving a sexual misconduct report, the Title IX coordinator contacts the impacted individual and offers to share rights and resources. If you choose to meet with the Title IX coordinator, you will learn about support services, how to report and the hearing process. Meeting with the Title IX coordinator does not mean you have to make a report.
