Reporting a Sexual Misconduct Complaint

On-Campus Authorities / Off-Campus Authorities

Please know that being raped or sexually assaulted is never the victim's fault. If you have been sexually assaulted or raped, you have options and resources to help you through the situation.

If you wish to report any type of sexual assault/rape or domestic violence to the police, you many contact either On-Campus authorities or Off-Campus authorities. For emergencies please use 911. If you were the victim of a crime off campus and are unsure which law enforcement office to contact, you can contact the Shippensburg University Public Safety Office and they will guide you in this process.

Amnesty Policy as it is Related to Sexual Misconduct

Adapted from University of Delaware's Policy for Sexual Assault

The Shippensburg University Office of Student Conduct grants amnesty to students who may have violated the Swataney’s Alcohol and Other Drug Policy at the same time of the incident when he or she became a victim of sexual assault. Therefore, no Code of Conduct violations are applied to a student who reports that he or she was under the influence of alcohol or other drugs at the time of a sexual assault.

Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Misconduct (Title IX), and Retaliation

Interpersonal violence includes dating violence, domestic violence, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or stalking behaviors. The Office of Social Equity addresses interpersonal violence concerns. To report interpersonal violence, please use the online reporting form.
