Meet the Title IX Team
Our team works to create a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for all individuals who seek services through our office. We understand that your GVSU experience may be impacted, and we’re able to provide assistance through supportive measures, or campus modifications, designed to protect your safety and preserve or restore your ability to participate in GVSU’s programs and activities.
Some individuals prefer a supportive response only, others choose to request a university investigation, and some choose both. We’re here to help inform your decision and which path feels right for you.
We invite you to an informational meeting with a member of our team to discuss your options and how we may be able to assist. Neither reporting to our office nor discussing with a member of our team obligates a course of action. The choice to file a formal complaint with GVSU is yours to make.
You may also choose to make a report with the Grand Valley Police Department, and we can assist in making a connection.
