Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct
Contest organizers who are made aware that a student may have been the victim of discrimination or sexual misconduct are obligated by federal law to inform the University's Title IX office. The Title IX office will decide if the incident should be examined further. If you disclose such a situation in your submitted contest entry, the contest organizers cannot promise confidentiality.
If you have experienced discrimination or sexual misconduct and would like to discuss it with a trained individual in a confidential setting, please visit the website of the University's Office of Equity and Inclusion at http://sites.udel.edu/oei/. You will find information about the University's non-discrimination and sexual misconduct policies, helpful resources, and instructions on how to report incidents.
