Title IX

Preventing Sexual Assault, Gender Inequality, and Discrimination

Reporting Options – General Information

Winthrop is fully committed to preventing and removing sources of harassment, assault, and discrimination on or off campus. The first step is reporting any incidents that have happened to you, a friend, a coworker, a fellow student or someone that you know. There are many options to reporting; it can be done in person or anonymously, confidentially or not, or by communicating the incident to the police or not – these decisions are ultimately left to the complainant.

We urge you to contact the on-campus resources found below or Campus Police via the “personal safety” tab to the right and share any concerns or reports that you may have. Please note that Campus Police are considered “non-confidential” resources and required to disclose any records of an investigation to the public, though not necessarily personally identifiable information. Reporting to any one person or organization does not prohibit one from speaking with others, so please choose a reporting avenue which best suits your individual situation.

Dr. Kimberly Faust, Chief of Staff, serves as Winthrop’s Title IX Coordinator. She is responsible for coordinating the university’s compliance with Title IX, including policy recommendations, overseeing all complaints of sex discrimination, and identifying and addressing any problems that arise during the review of such complaints. Questions or concerns may be directed as follows:

Anonymous and Online Reporting Options


Please click the link below in order to submit a report to the lead Title IX investigator. While not required, this report can be anonymous if you so wish. By submitting a report to our investigators, your experience can help empower the University in further protecting the campus community even if you choose not to pursue a full investigation. Please note that while the report itself will not be made publicly available, Title IX investigators will utilize your report on a ‘need to know basis’ in taking necessary steps towards ensuring campus safety if the respondent has a history of violence or other factors that suggest a likelihood that the respondent will commit future acts of sexual violence.

In Person Reporting Options

When it comes to reporting any Title IX concern, whether it be a personal assault or an observation of discrimination somewhere on campus, the following persons are your best options for support. Please note that these persons are considered “limited-confidentiality” resources are that they must balance the wishes of the person making the report with the overall safety of the Winthrop campus. Examples of such extenuating circumstances are when there are multiple complaints about the respondent (the student whose conduct is being reported), if the respondent has a history of violence, or other factors that suggest a likelihood that the respondent will commit future acts of sexual violence, The limited-confidentiality resources usually will enlist other Winthrop administrators to take necessary steps towards ensuring campus safety while only disclosing information on a “need-to-know” basis.
