File a Report Under ACU’s Grievance Policy

ACU encourages reporting to one of the two Anti-Harassment Co-Coordinator, whose information is listed below, or a Deputy Coordinator.  They can inform you of the complaint procedures, support resources, and interim measures.

You may also file a separate criminal charge by contacting the ACU Police Department or seek confidential counseling or support either on campus or off campus.  Choosing one option does not preclude you from pursuing another option now or in the future.  

For information regarding alternative reporting options and the university’s legal obligation to address reports of harassment, see both Resources and Section V.C. of the policy.
