Report Title IX Violations
The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo encourages everyone to report instances of sexual misconduct or gender discrimination to the Title IX Coordinator. If you choose to report to the Coordinator, this is what you can expect: that your confidence will be kept to the extent possible and that the Coordinator will work with you regarding remedies that can assist you with getting through this difficult time, such as schedule changes, counseling, assistance with academic or employment deadlines. Please know that while the Coordinator will do everything possible to respect a reporting party’s wishes regarding investigation, in some cases, an investigation may need to be conducted if the safety of the campus community is in question. For a comprehensive list of complainant’s rights, please contact the Title IX Coordinator directly or review the Victims Bill of Rights.
Many staff members and all faculty members are considered “responsible employees”. This means that if you disclose an incident of sexual misconduct to one of these employees, they are required to report it to the Title IX Coordinator. If you wish to obtain confidential assistance, please see the contact information on our resources page. You may also report anonymously using the report button at the top of the page. For a comprehensive list of resources, policies, and reporting options, please see the University of Hawaiʻi System’s Title IX Resource Guide (PDF).
Please know that reporting to law enforcement is another option that can be done separately from or in conjunction with reporting to the University. To contact the Hawaiʻi Police Department , please call (808) 935-3311.
Please report any issues of concern.
