Your Ally: Equal Opportunity

When someone with a potential complaint visits the Equal Opportunity office and are unsure if their complaint is based on sexual harassment or sexual assault, the Equal Opportunity staff reads both case type definitions while the potential complainant reads along to ensure they know the difference. This process is done before they can divulge any information to ensure they maintain their restricted reporting option. If the potential complainant divulges information and it is sexual assault, the individual loses their restricted reporting option because EO staff members are mandated reporters. Since EO and Sexual Assault Response Coordinator are located in the same building, it becomes a seamless transition for both agencies to work together.
