Title IX Formal Complaint Form

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. § 1681) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex of students and employees of educational institutions which receive federal financial assistance. When this form has been completed and signed by you, and then signed by the Title IX Coordinator, your complaint has been properly received and noted by the University.  The Formal Complaint Form is required to initiate the formal resolution process (investigation and hearing or informal resolution).

We will provide you with a copy of this form as well as complete information about the Title IX complaint process. If you require emergency assistance, please call security at: (302) 857-7911.

You may complete, sign and file this Title IX Formal Complaint form by sending it to the DSU Title IX Coordinator in person, by mail, email or online.
