Sexual Misconduct

How to Report Sexual Misconduct: 

The University of New Mexico urges any individual who has experienced sexual violence or misconduct, or has knowledge about an incident of sexual misconduct, to make an official report. However, UNM recognizes that some individuals may want to speak with someone anonymously about reporting options and support before deciding whether to report the incident to the police or the Office of Equal Opportunity for investigation.

Individuals who experience sexual misconduct are strongly encouraged to understand the various reporting requirements of University entities in order to make the best decision for their circumstance.

Whether or not anonymity is requested, information about sexual violence and misconduct will be treated confidentially and only be shared on a need-to-know basis, and as authorized under University policy and applicable federal and state law.

Under Title IX, sexual violence is a severe form of sexual harassment. Sexual violence is unacceptable and will not be tolerated at the University of New Mexico. Sexual violence may be committed by a stranger, an acquaintance or someone with whom the victim is involved in an intimate or sexual relationship. Victims of sexual violence are encouraged to report what happened to law enforcement and seek assistance from any of the resources, on and off campus, listed in this publication.
