File a Formal Report

Anyone may formally report a complaint of sexual misconduct or retaliation related to sexual misconduct to the University by contacting the Title IX Deputy Coordinator:

Tabatha Jones Jolivet
Associate Vice President for Student Life
Title IX Deputy Coordinator

A student reporting sexual misconduct may do so verbally or in a written report. If a written report is submitted, it should contain a brief written statement citing the type(s) of sexual misconduct that occurred (see definitions section) and supporting facts (e.g., alleged perpetrator, what happened, when and where the incident occurred, witness(es), etc.). The scope of any investigation, and who will conduct the investigation, shall be in the sole discretion of the Title IX deputy coordinator. The investigation may include, but is not limited to, meeting with parties, talking with witnesses, and reviewing any supporting documents.

Formal reports and any related investigative materials concerning a Pepperdine student will be submitted to the associate dean of student affairs. Formal reports and any related investigative materials concerning Pepperdine faculty or staff will be submitted to the grievance officer. Formal reports concerning non-student third-parties will be resolved by the Title IX deputy coordinator. Reports should be submitted as soon as possible after the sexual misconduct takes place. The University reserves the right to investigate, take disciplinary action, and/or report sexual misconduct to local law enforcement regardless of how much time has passed since it occurred and even if the sexual misconduct is reported after the student graduates or employee leaves the University.
