Do you want to anonymously submit information about the assault?
MSUM will make every reasonable effort to preserve an individual’s privacy and protect the confidentiality of information related to sexual assault.
The University may issue a timely warning, a brief description including time and location, to notify the community about the occurrence of a serious crime or pattern of crimes that might put the public at risk. Timely warnings do not specify victim-identifying information.
Any campus security authority or any university employee with supervisory or student-advising responsibility who has been informed of an alleged incident of sexual violence must follow university procedures for reporting to the Title IX Compliance Coordinator.
Because sexual assault is a serious crime that may threaten the community as a whole, the University is obliged to pursue an alleged sexual assault through internal investigatory procedures to the fullest extent possible, which may be limited by the lack of information or a withdrawn complaint.
