Reporting

Any person (whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to be the victim of sexual or relationship violence) may report incidents of sexual misconduct, including but not limited to, sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking. Reporting may be done in person, via phone, email at titleixofficer@drew.edu, filing a report via the LiveSafe app or the Title IX website, or by any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the person’s verbal or written report.

Contact Information for the Title IX Coordinator

Cynthia L. Garrett, Title IX Coordinator & Lead Investigator;
Ehinger Center 147; cgarrett@drew.edu or titleixofficer@drew.edu; (973) 408-3635

Any student has the right to file a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights, at (800) 421-3481 or ocr@ed.gov. If you want to complete a complaint form online, you can do so at: https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/complaintintro.html

Filing a Report Off-Campus

Students and employees may always report to law enforcement. Drew University strongly encourages persons exposed to sexual or relationship violence to report those offenses to the Madison Police Department at (973) 593-3000 or the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office at (973) 625-6200. Drew staff can provide assistance in making such reports or contacts. In most circumstances, excluding domestic violence which can include dating violence, law enforcement will not pursue criminal charges without a complainant’s consent or cooperation. If you choose to solely report off-campus to law enforcement, the Title IX Coordinator at Drew will typically not be notified.

Confidentiality vs. Privacy

Communications made in confidence to a person with a legal privilege in the course of their professional work means that person cannot disclose the matter to anyone, including law enforcement and university officials, unless there is a risk of harm or permission is granted. Confidential and legally privileged resources are commonly identified as counseling services, health services, chaplain, and attorney-client privileges.

Privacy means Drew employees who cannot guarantee confidentiality yet will maintain privacy to the greatest extent possible, and information disclosed will be relayed only as necessary to investigate and/or seek a resolution and to notify the Title IX Coordinator or designee, who is responsible for tracking patterns and identifying systemic issues.
