Report to the College

How to Report When You Have Experienced Sexual Harassment or Misconduct

Anyone who has experienced sex discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct – including, but not limited to, unwelcome sexual advances, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking – is strongly encouraged to report this experience to the college. Reporting to the college will enable the college to take measures to stop the behavior, prevent it from occurring in the future, and provide support, resources, and protection.

There are many different ways to report to the college, whether orally or in writing:

  • You can contact the St. Olaf Title IX Coordinator or any other member of the Title IX team, in person, by telephone, or by email.
  • You can submit the online reporting form, which will go directly to a member of the Title IX team. You can choose to complete it anonymously or to provide your name and contact information.
  • You can report anonymously by telephone by calling the Campus Conduct Hotline, an independent organization available 24/7, at 866-943-2787.

You can report to the college without initiating a formal complaint (which results in an investigation and, potentially, disciplinary action) or reporting to law enforcement. You do not need to submit a report in writing in order to receive support, resources, or protective measures from the college. Please see the St. Olaf College Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct Policy for additional information about reporting options and considerations.

Reporting Sexual Harassment or Misconduct that Has Happened to Someone Else

With the exception of college-identified confidential resources, all college employees who become aware of incidents or allegations of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct, must report the matter to the college. This obligation extends to student employees in the course of their work-related activities. All other individuals are strongly encouraged to report to the college as well.
