How to Report Sexual Misconduct

It is the right of those who believe they have experienced sexual misconduct to choose whether or not to report the matter to the college and/or law enforcement. The college, however, urges anyone who has experienced sexual assault, domestic, dating violence, or stalking to seek support as soon as possible to minimize and treat physical and emotional harm and to understand the options for reporting.

It is also important to obtain medical treatment following sexual assault or other acts of violence. A hospital exam to collect evidence for potential criminal prosecution should be done as soon as possible after the incident. The Campus Sexual Assault Victims' Bill of Rights exists as a part of the campus security reporting requirements, commonly known as the Jeanne Clery Act and provides information on the rights of those who report sexual violence on a college campus.

Any person may report an incident of sexual assault, interpersonal violence (including domestic and dating violence), stalking, sexual harassment, and sex discrimination) to one of the Title IX Coordinators via the online reporting form; via email at TitleIXSupport@lee.edu; via mail at P.O. Box 818, Baytown TX 77520-0818, or by calling one of the Title IX coordinators directly (information below). Reports can be made regardless of whether the person reporting is the person alleged to be subject to the complaint. The online reporting from allows for anonymous reports.

Why Report?

  • The incident has negatively affected your academics or employment.

  • You want the college to pursue disciplinary action against the respondent.
  • Reporting an incident informs the college of the incident, which allows the institution to provide support, resources, and accommodations to the all the parties impacted by the incident and does not necessarily result in the initiation of a grievance process.
