On-Campus Title IX Resources
Finding Assistance within Mason Nation
Mason offers multiple options to help you navigate your situation and determine which may be best for you. If you are a Mason staff or faculty member in need of assistance, click here.
Resources marked with an asterisk (*) are confidential, meaning the incident will NOT be reported to Mason's Title IX Coordinator or anyone else. The remaining resources are considered non-confidential or private: these are mandated reporters, meaning if you speak with staff in those offices—or to any faculty member—they are required to notify Mason's Title IX Coordinator of any reported incidents.
