Title IX and Sexual Harassment - Shorter University

To Report Harassment and Sexual Abuse:

On Campus Reporting

The Shorter University Title IX grievance process begins when the University has “actual knowledge”. Actual knowledge means notice to the Title IX Coordinator, or to an official with authority to institute corrective measures on the recipient’s behalf. A report may be made to the Title IX Coordinator or a Responsible Employee in person, by telephone, in writing, or by email.
