What is the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (SRR)?


The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (SRR) is responsible for reviewing and handling incidents involving students. The staff works closely with many other department and program staff on campus to ensure that all students can live, work, and learn in a mutually satisfying and secure environment.


How does SRR serve ASU students?


Incidents of sexual or relationship violence involving students can be reported to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. Reporting to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities can be done in addition to reporting to the police for criminal prosecution. Additionally, SRR will refer you to appropriate ASU and community resources for additional support.

To report an incident, call or visit a Dean of Students office or visit the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.

Additionally, you may fill out and submit an incident report to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. Incident reports are accepted from students, faculty, staff, or other persons who believe that a student or a student organization may have violated the ABOR Student Code of Conduct.

Personnel within this office are mandatory reporters who only share information with other university offices and officials who need to be involved in providing support or assisting with the reporting process. As a reminder, there are other confidential resources available whom you can utilize.


What to expect when connecting with SRR

You can reach out to SRR through the Dean of Students Office. SRR may also be reaching out to you to obtain additional information about a complaint and to provide you with information to support services. Where appropriate, Student Advocacy and Assistance may be the first department to reach out to you. SRR will work to connect with you as soon as possible, via a phone call or email, to schedule an appointment. This appointment can take place via phone, Zoom or on any of the following ASU campuses: Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, West and Polytechnic.

There is a grievance procedure that addresses Student Code of Conduct violations with regards to sexual misconduct and a separate grievance procedure that addresses formal complaints of Title IX sexual harassment. When appropriate, these two grievance processes may run concurrently. Student Advocacy and Assistance will provide additional support services during the investigation.

The investigative process includes interviews with reporting and responding students and witnesses. SRR will look to gather statements (verbal and/or written) and any form of documentation if available (including, but not limited to, audio, video, emails, voicemails, text messages, direct messages from social media, etc.). Information gathered during the course of the investigation is compiled into an investigative report that both the reporting and responding students review. Students may provide a written response to the investigative report. At the conclusion, students will be informed of the outcomes and findings directly either in person, over the phone, or video conference through Zoom. Students will also receive the outcomes and findings in writing.

You may refer to the Student Code of Conduct Procedures and the formal Title IX Grievance Procedures for detailed information.
