The USAIB Process: The University Sexual Assault Investigation Board (Title IX)

This judicial process of reporting allows students to report incidents of harassment or assault.

How it works: (Feel free to call S.A.R.A.H. for more information about this process)

  1. Complainant (the personing filing a report) contacts the university’s Title IX Coordinator, Jessica Kennedy at 314-935-3118, Cynthia Copeland at 314-935-3411, or the Director of Student Conduct, Tamara King at 314-935-4174

  • It should be noted that Cynthia Copeland works with reports within the student body, while Jessica Kennedy works with reports between a student and a faculty member.
  1. Speaking to either of these people may not mean that the student is obligated to report

  2. A student may also pursue criminal charges while filing judicial processes

  3. Each party is allowed one person to accompany them, though this person may not be a witness or involved in the case

  1. Both parties write up and submit report of events

  2. The case is heard before the University Sexual Assault Investigative Board that adjudicates the case. The USAIB has three members: 1 student, 1 faculty member, and 1 staff member

  3. An investigator interviews every witness or potential witness mentioned in the submitted reports and compiles these interviews

  4. The USAIB will evaluate this report and may separately interview anyone, though there will be no confrontation between parties

  5. Both parties have one week to write responses to the investigation

  6. If ⅔ of USAIB panel determines that respondent “more likely than not” violated the judicial code, USAIB will impose sanctions ranging from suspension to expulsion

  • Changes imposed by the Trump administration are coming to WashU’s Title IX reporting process, the University Sexual Assault Reporting Process (USAIB). These alterations would make it harder to report assaults to the board and make it harder on survivors who choose to go through the reporting process. Read SARAH’s letter to the administration advocating for what we think are more survivor-centered approaches or send your own advocating for survivors’ rights with our email template.
