How to Report
Reporting to UT Southwestern
UT Southwestern strongly encourages the prompt reporting of incidents of sex discrimination (including discrimination on the basis of gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation), sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. All UT Southwestern employees MUST report all information known about incidents of sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence and stalking committed by or against a UTSW student or employee to a Title IX Coordinator. Confidential Employees must report only the type of incident to a Title IX Coordinator. Knowingly failing to report an incident as required could lead to termination of employment and possible criminal charges under state law. If you have questions about your reporting obligations, please contact a Title IX Coordinator
How to report an incident or Title IX concern:
- Contact UT Southwestern’s Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Charles Ginsburg, or the Deputy Coordinator
- titleIX@utsouthwestern.edu the Office of Institutional Equity & Access
- Report the concern to the Compliance Hotline at 877-507-7319. The Compliance Hotline is a 24/7/365 confidential third-party reporting service. Calls can be made anonymously, or individuals may leave their name. Reports to the Hotline are forwarded to UT Southwestern to be promptly evaluated. Employees who choose to report anonymously via this method must retain a record of the report number demonstrating the employee made the report as required by state law.
- Report the concern online using the appropriate box above.
The University recognizes that deciding whether to make a report and choosing how to proceed can be difficult decisions. The University encourages any individual who has questions or concerns to seek the support of campus and community resources. These professionals can provide information and assistance regardless of when or where the incident occurred.
Reporting to Law Enforcement
The University also encourages complainants to pursue criminal action for incidents that may also be crimes under state criminal law, including sexual violence, relationship violence, assault, or stalking. The University will assist a complainant, at the complainant’s request, in contacting local law enforcement and will cooperate with local or campus law enforcement agencies if a complainant decides to pursue the criminal process.

Commitment to Privacy and Confidentiality
All Title IX concerns are treated as confidential, and Title IX Coordinators will only share information with authorized individuals as necessary. All UT Southwestern employees must report any incidents of sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic/dating violence, or stalking committed by or against a student, resident, or employee. This reporting requirement does NOT apply to Confidential Employees, which includes counselors in Student Wellness and Counseling, the Resident Wellness and Counseling Center, the Employee Assistance Program, members of the Student Assistance Committee, providers in Student Health, or members of the clergy. Employees who learn about incidents under other confidential circumstances (such as attorneys or treating health care providers) are also exempt from the reporting requirement. Confidential Employees are only required to report the type of incident and may not include any information that would violate an individual’s privacy.
