Title IX FAQs

Q. WHAT IF I WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED LAST YEAR?

A. There is no time limit for reporting incidents of sexual assault, and there is certainly no time limit to reach out to someone for assistance in dealing with an assault. Its normal for victims to not want to come forward at first, so don’t feel as though if you haven’t come forward to talk about it that you can’t. You can openly discuss your rights and options with a Title IX Education Specialist, and if you would like to report the incident, you can  report it to Title IX at any time.

Q. I HAVE SUGGESTIONS OR CONCERNS, WHO DO I CONTACT?

Please free to contact the Title IX Coordinator at WVU Potomac State College, Kara Anderson at  3 04-788-6910, or at  KaAnderson@mail.wvu.edu, OR WVU Main/Morgantown Campus'  Title IX Coordinator, James Goins, Jr.  at 304-293-5600 or james.goins@mail.wvu.edu .

If you would like to speak to someone anonymously, please contact the  Title IX On-Call line at  (304) 906-9930. Someone is available to take your call twenty-four hours a day.
