Flowchart: Sexual Misconduct Process for Students

The University is required to respond to all reports of sexual misconduct, civil rights discrimination, and workplace violence in the most appropriate manner. Responding to these concerns does not indicate that there has been a violation of UW policy.

After receiving a report, the University will begin an assessment, which normally will start within 72 hours of receipt of the incident report. Typically, this will include the following actions:

  • Initial meeting with person filing the incident report to:

    • Review the incident report;

    • Collect or request all relevant evidence and documents;

    • Review rights and options with respect to the incident reported;

    • Review relevant interim protective measures.

  • Initial meeting with the person(s) accused

    • Review the written incident report;

    • Collect or request all relevant evidence and documents;

    • Review of rights and options with respect to the incident reported;

    • Review of relevant interim protective measures.

  • Meetings with witness(es) who have direct knowledge of events.

  • Review of all relevant documentation.

  • Follow-up meeting(s) or contact(s) with the person filing the incident report and the accused to ascertain additional information, to clarify information, and to update on the status of the investigation process.

  • The person conducting the investigation may, except in cases involving sexual violence, seek to resolve the matter informally.

  • At the conclusion of the investigation, the person conducting the investigation will retain all records and notes of the investigation.

  • The person conducting the investigation shall prepare a written report, including the summary of findings and outcomes. The person conducting the investigation may use college resources, including peers or colleagues trained in Title IX proceedings, to assist in the preparation of the written report.  

  • Thereafter, a copy of the summary of findings will be provided to the individual filing the incident report and the accused. Witnesses will not receive the written report, but may review any sections which refer to them.

Depending on the nature of the incident report, the complexity of the issues and events, number and availability of witnesses, the amount of information to be gathered and reviewed, and other factors, UW will attempt to complete the investigation within 60 calendar days. Additional time may be necessary in order to conduct a fair and equitable investigation. The person filing the incident report and the accused will be informed periodically of the status of the investigation.

While UW will exercise reasonable diligence in complying with the timelines and procedures outlined, deviations may occur in order to meet the intent of the policy or to ensure the fair and equitable resolution of a reported incident. The person filing the incident report or the accused should report any procedural error or deficiency to the Title IX Coordinator. A procedural error or deficiency shall not require an outcome in favor of the person allegedly disadvantaged by the error.

Title IX Coordinator


Victims of sexual misconduct may file a report directly with the Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX Coordinator is available to offer ongoing support to victims of sexual assault in understanding UW’s investigative and/or disciplinary processes or the criminal process as the victim chooses.

The Title IX Coordinator has the duty to address sexual violence and remedy the effects on the victim and the College community. The Coordinator will make every effort to maintain confidentiality, but may be required to investigate the incident.

Responsible Employees


Many employees (faculty members, administrators, residence assistants and directors, coaches, advisors) are able to offer emotional support to victims and help direct them to appropriate resources. Responsible employees, upon receiving notice of sexual misconduct, are required by law to notify the Title IX Coordinator the details of sexual misconduct.  At UW, ALL EMPLOYEES are considered responsible employees except those who have been designated confidential employees (victim advocates, health care providers, mental health counselors, and clergy acting in their professional/confidential role). 


Anonymous Reports


There are anonymous ways to make a report of sexual assault, even to law enforcement. The following are ways to report do not require your name or information to make a report, though you may choose to provide it:

Confidential Employees


UW has employees who are available to offer victims of sexual assault support and guidance in a completely confidential environment. Individuals may choose this option if they want to talk about the incident but do not want any further action to be taken.  Confidential employees can provide individuals with both immediate and long-term help. They will listen, and help access additional assistance and explain options for obtaining additional support.

  • University Counseling Center: 307-766-2187, 341 Knight Hall.  For after-hours crises, call 766-8989 and ask for the on-call counselor.  If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911.

  • Student Health Services: 307-766-2130, Student Health/Cheney International Building, email

  • STOP Violence Program: 307-766-3475, Dean of Students Office, Knight Hall 118, email

In addition to the confidential resources provided by UW, individuals may speak with off-campus crisis counselors, domestic violence resources, private agencies, and off-campus members of the clergy, each of whom will maintain confidentiality, except in extreme cases that involve a minor or immediate danger.


Law Enforcement


The University of Wyoming encourages reporting possible crimes to law enforcement.  Please be advised that criminal processes are independent of the UW. Even when a report has been made to law enforcement, employees are required to make a report to the Title IX Coordinator; all others are encouraged to report to UW as well.
