Everyone should have access to sexual/gender based discrimination and misconduct reporting options and support services, even if they do not wish to formally report an incident.
The College has created procedures for students and faculty/staff that detail how to make a report, and the process that is followed, when the College conducts an investigation.
For faculty or staff who feel they have been discriminated against: Discrimination Complaint Procedure
For students who have been discriminated against on the basis of sex or gender, or who have experienced dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking: Gender-Based and/or Sexual Misconduct Report
It is not only our ethical responsibility to respond in a comprehensive and supportive way to a sexual assault, it is also our legal responsibility. Most individuals that work for the College are "responsible employees" who have been deemed mandatory reporters, an employee who is required to report incidents of alleged prohibited conduct under Title IX to the College. Responsible Employees must inform students who report sexual violence to them that they are not a confidential resource and are required to report incidents of sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence and dating violence to College officials.
