424-777-EROC

End Rape on Campus (EROC) is a survivor advocacy organization dedicated to ending sexual violence through survivor support, public education, and policy and legislative reform.

We provide free, direct assistance to all survivors of gender-based and sexual violence on campus interested in filing federal complaints, organizing for change, or drawing public attention to hold their schools accountable.

We have assisted hundreds of students at dozens of schools file Title IXClery Act, and other civil rights complaints to seek justice and reform.

Our Cases

OUR CASES

EROC staff members have assisted with numerous filings of Clery, Title IX, and Title II complaints. To date, we have directly assisted in the filing of over 37 Title IX and/or Clery complaints under investigation with over 175 complaintants. In some cases, complaintants decide to publicly acknowledge their complaint filings through EROC-coordinated press conferences and media. Others choose not to do so, but wish that their schools be named on this site. Both kinds of complaints are valuable and no survivor should ever feel that they should have to report or should have to become “public” in order to be believed. 

As of May 2016, there are over 195 colleges and universities under investigation for the violation of Title IX.
