Title IX Resources

If you are in immediate danger, please call 911.

Reporting to UH Hilo

University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo encourages students, faculty, staff, and visitors to report sexual misconduct so that you can get the support and resources you need and so that the University can appropriately respond to the situation. If you choose to contact the Title IX Coordinator, a Deputy Coordinator, or a responsible employee, the University will be put on notice. While the Title IX Coordinator will do everything possible to respect the reporting party's wishes regarding investigation, some complaints may need to be investigated without the reporting party's consent, if it is determined that there is a threat to the campus community. Please note that faculty members and many staff members are considered responsible employees, which means they are required to report sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator. For information on confidential resources, please see below.
