Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct Reporting

Ferris State University has a policy that prohibits relationship violence and sexual misconduct, including sexual assault. FSUDPS handles the criminal investigation and works collaboratively with the Office of Student Life, Title IX, and the Office of Student Conduct. If you feel you are the victim of a sexual assault or have been assaulted by a person you are in a relationship with, contact the FSUDPS.

You may file an online sexual misconduct form or if you suspect or are a victim to gender or sex discrimination you can file an online Title IX complaint form.
