Survivors / Complainants
RIGHTS AND OPTIONS FOR COMPLAINANTS
If you have experienced sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, relationship violence, or stalking, this may be a confusing and overwhelming time. Therefore, UCF provides a number of resources that can support your wellbeing, give you options for reporting your concerns, and help you understand the investigation process should you choose to file a complaint.
UCF refers to individuals who report alleged misconduct as Complainants (meaning the person who may file a complaint) and those who have been alleged to have violated the Nondiscrimination Policy or Title IX Grievance Policy as Respondents (meaning an individual responding to allegations). If UCF conducts an investigation, you will have the opportunity to provide your full story to the investigators as well as any documentation you feel is relevant to the matter. Also, it is important for you to keep in mind that any act of retaliation against any person for making a report or participating in an investigation is strictly prohibited.
Resources and support are available to Complainants, both on and off campus. Please visit our Resources Page for additional information.
