Common Concerns & Questions

  • Do I have to report within a specific timeframe?

  • Can I report things that happen off campus?

  • I’m afraid that if I report, I will be retaliated against.

  • I’ve already gone to the police. Do I have to report to FGCU too?

  • I don’t want an investigation. I just want the behavior to stop.

  • Isn’t the process going to be biased towards the complainant?

  • I would like supportive measures, but do not want to file a formal complaint.
