If you are interested in making a report, there are numerous ways you can do so:
Make a report to the Title IX Coordinator
- Any Formal Complaint that arises from a report to the Title IX Coordinator would be a part of an administrative process that could result in university-related sanctions. This cannot and will not result in criminal charges.
You may report to the Title IX Coordinator in the following ways:
- By phone at 402.554.2120
- By email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
- By completing the following form: UNO Sexual Misconduct Incident Reporting Form
Make a report to appropriate law enforcement agency
- This could result in criminal action being taken such as criminal charges. This cannot and will not result in university-related sanctions and/or action.
You may report by contacting your local law enforcement or by speaking with UNO Public Safety
Engage with confidential resources such as advocacy and counseling
- This will not result in any criminal charges or university-related sanctions
Additionally, UNO can assist in directing you to other entities that may intake a complaint. Some of these may be found at the "Related Links" at the bottom of the page.
While the University encourages University community members with knowledge of potential violations of the Sexual Misconduct Policy to the Title IX Coordinator, the University will only have actual notice of sexual misconduct if an individual reports to an Official with Authority. Official with Authority means an official of the University who has authority to institute corrective measures for sexual misconduct on behalf of the University. The following individuals are Officials with Authority at UNO:
Chancellor, Dr. Joanne Li
Vice Chancellor of Athletics, Adrian Dowell
Vice Chancellor for the Division of Strategic Institution and Student Success, Dr. Rich Klein
Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance, Carol Kirchner
Interim Sr. Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Dr. Deb Smith-Howell
Title IX Coordinator, Sarah Weil
The University will respond to reported allegations of sexual misconduct and may provide appropriate supportive measures to the Complainant even if the Complainant does not wish to pursue a Formal Complaint. If an individual would like the University to respond to allegations of sexual misconduct, it is important that the individual report to the Title IX Coordinator.
The Title IX Coordinator, or their designee, will contact the impacted party to let them know their reporting options and resources.
All individuals are expected to promptly report discrimination or conduct that may violate the University’s Sexual Misconduct Policy to the University. In addition, all individuals are expected to report conduct that may also violate criminal law to both the Title IX Coordinator and to local law enforcement. These processes are not mutually exclusive and both may happen simultaneous or at different times.
Any University student, employee, or other individual who seeks to report may contact the following entites:
UNO Title IX Coordinator
UNO Public Safety
