What if I do not want to proceed with a formal complaint, or I want to withdraw a complaint?

The Title IX Coordinator will consider the complainant’s request not to proceed, bearing in mind the responsibility to ensure the safety of the campus and comply with state and federal law.

In certain circumstances, the Title IX Coordinator will proceed with a formal complaint of prohibited conduct even if a complainant does not wish for their name to be shared, does not wish for an investigation to take place, or does not want to pursue a formal complaint.

The Title IX Coordinator has ultimate discretion over whether the school proceeds with a complaint even if the complainant does not wish to move forward.
