Reporting Incidents

Report to the Title IX Office

If you or someone you know has experienced sex discrimination or sexual violence, we encourage you to file a report or contact the Title IX Office for resources and assistance. The Title IX Office can assist with academic and workplace supportive measures and investigate allegations of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, stalking, and discrimination within the campus community. 

To report an incident to the Title IX Office, contact Wendi Liss, the Title IX and Gender Equity Officer, at wendi.liss@sjsu.edu or 408-924-7289.

Alternatively, you may also report an incident using the online Incident Reporting Form. Submissions using this form will be reviewed by the Title IX Office staff and someone will reach out to you during business hours. 

Report to Law Enforcement

Students, faculty and staff have the right to pursue criminal charges whether or not they report to the University. If an incident occurred on campus, you can report to San Jose State University Police Department.  

UPD Dispatch: 408-924-2222

If an incident occurred off campus, you can report to local law enforcement, such as San Jose Police Department or Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department. 

If you are in immediate danger, call 408-924-2222 (on-campus) or dial 911 (off-campus). You can also alert UPD from one of the many Blue Lights around campus.

Report to Confidential Support

We encourage survivors of Sexual Assault, Rape, Dating/Domestic Violence, and Stalking (collectively Sexual Misconduct) to talk with someone about what happened, discuss reporting options, and to help connect you with support services. 

SJSU’s Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) is a confidential resource - you can discuss what happened without notifying the Title IX Office or law enforcement. Please visit www.sjsu.edu/counseling for more information regarding CAPS' services.

The YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley is a non-profit organization that can provide confidential support to survivors of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and human trafficking. The YWCA will not report information to the Title IX Office or law enforcement without your consent. For more information about the YWCA, please visit https://yourywca.org/
