The University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC) is designed to address allegations of sexual misconduct and is available to students, faculty and staff across the University according to the guidelines described in the Committee’s Procedures. The Committee provides an accessible, representative and trained body to answer inquiries and fairly and expeditiously hear formal complaints of sexual misconduct. The Committee consists of students, faculty and administrators drawn from throughout the University.  Committee members are trained in the protocols for maintaining confidentiality and observe strict confidentiality with respect to all information they receive about a case.  

Any person who believes they may have experienced sexual misconduct may also contact the SHARE Center, the Title IX Coordinators, the Yale Police Department, or the New Haven Police Department.  For detailed information on all of Yale’s services, including resources, filing an informal complaint, and mechanisms for victims of sexual misconduct, please consult the Sexual Misconduct Response website.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance.
