Boise State takes reports of sexual harassment and assault, relationship violence, and stalking seriously.
In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Boise State promptly, thoroughly, and impartially investigates any incidents of gender-based violence of which it knows or reasonably should know. Therefore, all incidents reported through this form are investigated by Boise State, however, investigations and any additional university response are limited by the information you provide. If the person who experienced abusive behavior is under the age of 18, the University may be required to notify law enforcement officials. For all other incidents, the reporter is encouraged to report crimes to law enforcement as well as to the university, but university officials will not make an automatic report to law enforcement.
Boise State’s primary concern is ensuring that you and the broader Boise State community are well cared for and safe. Boise State and the surrounding community offer many resources to support your physical and emotional recovery in the aftermath of experiencing or supporting a friend or family member who has experienced gender-based harassment or violence. If you want to talk confidentially about your options for campus and community support before filing a report, please contact the Gender Equity Center. The Gender Equity Center staff can walk you through your options and connect you with additional services and support.
Additional resources on the Boise State campus and in the community include:
