Process for Formal Complaints against Students

Process for Formal Complaints against Faculty or Staff 

  • Formal Complaints against Faculty or Staff are handled by GU’s Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Affirmative Action (IDEAA) on GU’s main campus.  The IDEAA Grievance Procedures provide a detailed overview of the process.
  • Please contact GU-Q’s Deputy Title IX Coordinator or titleixideaa@georgetown.edu for more information and to initiate a Formal Complaint against a Faculty or Staff member.

NOTE: Making a Report is not the same as filing a Complaint. An individual will typically only be informed that a report was made and undergo investigation when a formal Complaint is filed. It is your choice to file a Complaint or not, and there are many protective actions that can be taken without filing a formal Complaint or disclosing your identity. Contact the Deputy Title IX Coordinator for more details.
