Title IX Reporting Form

Title IX Reporting Form

At Florida International University, members of the University community have the right to be free from all forms of sex/gender harassment, discrimination and misconduct, examples of which can include acts of sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic dating partner violence, and stalking. All members of the University community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others and is consistent with the FIU 105 regulation. IDEA will investigate the complaint in accordance with University Policy and Procedures.
