The University will also take all appropriate steps to ensure that the respondent will not be subjected to retaliation by the complainant or anyone else with knowledge of the underlying report.
Anyone who believes they are experiencing retaliation is strongly encouraged to report that to the University Police, the University Title IX Coordinator or any other University official so appropriate action can be taken. Retaliation may also be a violation of federal law.
