Paths to Resolution

Main content start

To address situations involving sexual harassment, please contact the Title IX Coordinator at titleix@stanford.edu or 650-497-4955

External reporting

Both state and federal law prohibit sexual harassment.  You may file a complaint directly with any government agency that deals with unlawful harassment and discrimination claims:

  • U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
  • Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Education
  • State of California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH)

What not to do

Do not blame yourself. Sexual harassment is not something one brings on oneself.

Do not delay. Waiting to act in cases of sexual harassment only increases the probability that the harassing behavior will continue.

Don't wait to seek help. Being quiet about sexual harassment enables it to continue. Chances are very good that you are not the only one who has been harassed. Speaking up may prevent others from being harmed.

Consultation and advice

You might want just to talk to someone — to get ideas about what to do about the situation or behavior that concerns you. It could be someone else's behavior, or your own. There are several ways that you can talk with people on campus. You can even do it anonymously.
