Here are things you need to know about Title IX
The following are examples of behaviors considered to be a violation of Title IX:
The College utilizes both informal and formal procedures for resolving sexual harassment complaints. We encourage early reporting of concerns or complaints regarding sexual harassment because complaints are most effectively resolved at the earliest possible stage. Resolution options depend on the circumstances and may include education programs for particular individuals and mediation between the parties only if both desire mediation. Where informal resolution is unsuccessful or inappropriate, a formal complaint may be filed and a formal investigation undertaken. There is no prescribed sequence, so choosing one option first does not prevent a complainant from choosing a different option for resolution later on. Individuals may get advice or assistance without filing a complaint.
Upon receipt of a formal complaint, the Title IX Coordinator will initiate an investigation that will lead to a hearing where evidence is presented and both parties are questioned. The preponderance of evidence is the standard used to evaluate the evidence for purposes of making findings and drawing conclusions for the investigation. Contact the Title IX Coordinator or review the Student Code Procedure for Addressing Alleged Acts of Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment in the Student Handbook for additional details regarding the process.
You have the following rights:
Targets of sexual harassment or sexual assault are welcome to report the sexual harassment or sexual assault to College police and/or off-campus police, particularly if the individual desires prosecution through the criminal justice system.
The college will protect Complainants’ privacy to the extent possible under the law. However, once a formal complaint is filed, due process will require disclose of information to persons accused. An individual cannot remain anonymous when filing a formal complaint. However, we will only provide information to those involved in the process.
In certain cases, if the Title IX Coordinator is aware of sexual discrimination that has occurred, the college may investigate without a formal complaint in order to protect the safety of other members of our community.
