UMass Lowell recognizes that sexual assault, sexual violence, and sexual harassment can happen to anyone, anywhere. The university is committed to:
  • prevention
  • addressing all concerns with fairness
  • supporting anyone impacted
UMass Lowell has the obligation to review and respond to complaints of sexual harassment of all forms, and prevent its recurrence. 
All Officials with Authority are expected to report potential sexual harassment of any type, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking, to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator, 978-934-2104. 
If someone asks you for help or wishes to discuss a concern with you, please let the person know that there are confidential resources available on campus. Please ensure that they understand that if they speak with you, you must report their concerns. When the university learns of concerns, it can also inform the individuals involved of their rights, and offer resources and other assistance.
During meetings regarding sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking, all persons have the right to be accompanied by an advisor. 

Reporting sexual violence or sexual harassment to the Title IX Coordinator, an Official with Authority, or the UMass Lowell Police Department will give the opportunity of providing resources to you. Or, you may report a concern online. When doing so, providing your identifying information is optional.
