Filing a Complaint
Any member of the community, guest or visitor, who believes that this Policy has been violated should contact OEI or the Title IX Coordinator/Deputy Coordinator. Employees may also notify their supervisor. Students may notify an administrative advisor or faculty member. Any member of the community may contact EKU Police.
All employees receiving reports of a potential violation of this Policy are required to contact OEI or the Title IX Coordinator/Deputy Coordinator, as soon as practicable but not more than 72 hours after becoming aware of a report or incident.
Employees who fail to notify OEI or the Title IX Coordinator/Deputy Coordinator of a report or incident within 72 hours will be subject to discipline up to and including termination.
The University will, to the extent permitted by law, treat all reports with the maximum privacy possible: specific information on any complaints received by any party will be reported to OEI or the Title IX Coordinator/Deputy Coordinator. Subject to the University’s obligation to redress violations, every effort will be made to maintain the privacy of those initiating a report or complaint. In all cases, the University will give consideration to the party bringing a complaint with respect to how the complaint is pursued.
However, the University reserves the right to investigate and pursue a resolution when the affected person chooses not to initiate or participate in a formal process when such investigation and resolution is necessary to protect the community.
