Individuals who have experienced any form of sexual misconduct can report through the University, through the legal system, through both, or not at all. While you can make a report at any time, filing a report immediately after an incident can help preserve important evidence.
If you choose not to file a complaint with the Title IX Office, you are still able to receive supportive measures and campus and community resources and the Title IX office can direct you to other appropriate resources even if you do not wish to file a complaint. The UT Health San Antonio Police are also available for safety planning and available to answer any questions you may have. However, even if you choose not to file a complaint, the University may file its own administrative complaint in order to assess and respond to any threat to campus safety.
