Reporting Power-Based Interpersonal Violence Flowchart

Reporting Power-Based Interpersonal Violence

A report is submitted by any Emerson College employee who observes or learns about possible power-based interpersonal violence (PBIV) to Emerson's Title IX Coordinator located in Access, Equity, & Title IX (email address: titleix [at] emerson.edu)

[Or] a report is submitted by a Reporting Party (any person who has been directly impacted by PBIV) or a concerned community member to Emerson's Title IX Coordinator located in Access, Equity, & Title IX (email address: titleix [at] emerson.edu)

Access, Equity, & Title IX sends an email to the Reporting Party with information about:

  • On and off-campus resources, including confidential resources
    • Resources and supportive measures remain available even if Reporting Party does not want the College to take any further action at the time
  • Supportive measures, including no contact order(s), stay away directive(s), and academic, housing or workplace accommodations
    • [Again,] resources and supportive measures remain available even if Reporting Party does not want the College to take any further action at the time
  • Formal and Informal Resolution Processes at the College
    • The Formal Resolution Process involves an investigation and possible disciplinary action. This process may be requested by a Reporting Party or initiated by the Title IX Coordinator if there is an overriding personnel or safety concern. There are circumstances where the Title IX Coordinator may determine it is necessary for the College to take action in response to a report; for example, where there is an ongoing safety risk to members of the community or the Responding Party is a College employee.
  • An Informal Resolution Process is voluntary for both parties and may be requested by a Reporting Party
  • Filing a report with the police

People should consult with Access, Equity, & Title IX for additional assistance exploring and navigating available resources, supportive measures, and response options.
