Additional Resources

When it comes to reporting, you have several options. If you are a Responsible Employee you need to directly report to the Office of Equity and Compliance. If you are a Victim/Survivor, you may utilize any of the options below or view the On-Campus and Off-Campus tabs of this page for more options. As a Victim/Survivor, you will never be required to participate in the reporting process but it is encouraged in order to make you safer and for the betterment of our community.

Title IX protects people from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance. (see Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 for more information)

Title IX applies to University of Alaska Anchorage programs and activities, as related both to education and employment. UAA is committed to sustaining an environment of respect and support for all of our community members. An important part of that mission is ensuring that UAA’s campus is free of discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, and gender-based discrimination.

Once a report is received by the university, the Office of Equity and Compliance(OEC) will reach out to the Complainant(victim/survivor of the discrimination) to offer supportive measures and determine what the Complainants desired outcome is. After that initial outreach, the OEC member will determine whether we have jurisdiction over the matter, if the alleged conduct falls under UAA policy, and to determine whether the matter needs to go to an investigation. Generally, an investigation will not occur without the consent of the Complainant unless OEC determines that the alleged conduct poses an ongoing threat to the UAA community and involves conduct that needs to be addressed through formal channels.

If this is an emergency, please call 9-1-1.

A confidential option for reporting and support resources is UAA's Student Health and Counseling Center, located in Rasmuson Hall (RH) 116 / 120. Please call 907-786-4040 or email uaa_studenthealth@uaa.alaska.edu to schedule an appointment during normal business hours.

An anonymous option for reporting is UA's Confidential Hotline. You may contact the hotline at 855-251-5719 or submit an anonymous report

If you are interested in reporting to UAA's Office of Equity and Compliance, please follow the instructions linked below.
