Reporting an Incident of Power-Based Personal Violence
Even with our efforts to end power-based personal violence, we recognize that incidents of sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence, and domestic violence involving our students or another member of the Texas A&M community happen. If you would like to report an incident of power-based personal violence, you can file a Tell Somebody Report online which can be anonymous, or call the Offices of the Dean of Student Life at 979.845.3111.
