Considering Your Options
At SHARE, we aim to help you make the choices that are best for you. Our staff can provide information about all of our reporting options and are fully supportive of any decision you may make, including the decision not to pursure a complaint. Like so many other aspects of healing, there is no one right answer.
If you do choose to file a complaint, you have a few different options. Depending upon your own goals and concerns, you may choose to take one or more of these forms of action. SHARE will help facilitate any action you wish to take; we can schedule and attend meetings, research specific questions, and generally support you through the process.
- Filing a criminal complaint with the Yale Police Department
- Filing a formal or informal complaint with the University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (for more information, please view the videos created by Yale CCEs and administrators titled “Supporting a Friend Through the Formal UWC Process”)
- Filing a complaint with a Title IX Coordinator
SHARE can help you weigh your options, but the final decisions is yours.
