The Title IX process is inherently confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. Dear UNL has prepared and presented a list of demands to the University of Nebraska to improve accountability, transparency, staffing, survivor support, and training and ensure UNL's Title IX department functions without exploiting survivors of sexual misconduct.
We understand the overwhelming feeling of isolation and uncertainty following sexual assault and subsequently when considering reporting to law enforcement or your affiliated institution. We are with you and we want you to know, more than anything, that you have a community of supporters who never want you to feel alone in the choice you make. We grieve with you and we hope the following information and resources can help you heal however you feel is necessary. What happened is not your fault and you don’t deserve the burden of navigating the Title IX system alone. It is unfair for an institution to stress an individual with problems that require the work of a lawyer, investigator, and activist in order to remain and thrive as a successful member of this institution. No one deserves to be in this position.
You are not alone.
