Reporting Options for Complainants
If you have experienced sexual harassment, non-consensual sexual intercourse or touching, discrimination on the basis of sex/sexual orientation/gender identity, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or other forms of sexual misconduct we encourage you to report the incident. You can file a complaint with the university or with local law enforcement, or both, using one of the following options:
University Reporting Process: you can file a report with EWU's Title IX team by clicking the button "Report Title IX Concern" or by contacting the Title IX Coordinator, Annika Scharosch, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 509-359-6724.
Law Enforcement: you can also report a concern to local law enforcement. If it is an emergency, call 911. If it is not an emergency and the incident occurred on campus or you need assistance in identifying the appropriate law enforcement agency, you can contact EWU's Police Department at 509-359-4286 or by submitting a report at: https://inside.ewu.edu/police/report-a-crime/.
Anonymous or Confidential Reporting
Individuals that have been subjected to sexual misconduct have the option to report anonymously. However, anonymous reports may affect or prevent EWU from conducting an investigation. Confidentiality may be requested but may not always be possible based on the circumstances as each complaint involves different circumstances.
All EWU employees, except licensed professional counselors at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) are mandated reporters. Therefore, any incidents of alleged sexual misconduct reported to an EWU employee (other than a licensed professional counselor at CAPS) must be reported to the Title IX Coordinator, Annika Scharosch, within 24 hours. You can file an employee report by clikcing the "Report Title IX Concern" button or by contacting Ms. Scharosch directly at email@example.com or 509-359-6724. Employees that have been subjected to sexual misconduct are not required to self report the alleged incident they were involved in, but we encourage you to do so.
