Sexual Misconduct Policies, Prevention and Resources

Options for reporting sexual misconduct

Report to police

Students can report sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking to the police and pursue a criminal process. To reach SMU Police, call 214-768-3333 or pick up a blue-light phone on campus at any time of day or night.

Report to SMU

Students also can report sexual misconduct to SMU’s Title IX Coordinator and can pursue an SMU internal grievance process. To reach the SMU Title IX Coordinator, call 214-768-3601 or email

Students can choose to pursue one or both of these processes, or can choose not to pursue either process. The SMU process and the criminal process are independent of each other and can be pursued at the same time.
