What is your role?

UAB’s Title IX Sexual Violence and Sexual Misconduct Policy prohibits sexual misconduct, including gender-based assault, harassment, exploitation, dating and domestic violence, stalking and discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

All UAB employees, including student employees, are required to report sexual misconduct to UAB’s Title IX coordinator via email titleix@uab.edu, using this online form or by phone at 205-996-1340.

If someone confides in you about experiencing sexual misconduct, listen, offer support and encourage them to seek counseling. If they are in danger, call 911 or contact UAB Police and Public Safety at 205-975-4434, then, report the incident as required to UAB’s Title IX coordinator via email titleix@uab.edu, using this online form or by phone at 205-996-1340.

Employees who experience sexual misconduct have the right to choose with whom they will speak, what they will say and when they will say it and be protected from retaliation, according to the UAB’s duty to report and non-retaliation policy.
