    What should I do if I believe a Friend has been assaulted or harassed?

    Amnesty for Complainants

    Hardin-Simmons encourages the reporting of sexual misconduct. Sometimes, complainants are hesitant to report to college officials because they fear being charged with policy violations themselves (such as a campus housing visitation rule infraction, underage drinking, or sexual activity which violates the Student Code of Conduct) at the time of the incident. To encourage reporting, HSU offers complainants amnesty for Student Code of Conduct violations related to reporting sexual misconduct.

    Where to Report?

    Students, faculty or staff are encouraged to report any sexual misconduct directly to the Title IX Coordinator, Megan Baldree. Moody 219, (325) 670-1831.
