Reporting Misconduct

Any member of the community, guest or visitor who believes that the policy on Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct has been violated should contact the Title IX Coordinator or designee.  It is also possible for employees to notify a supervisor, or for students to notify the Office of Student Conduct, Housing and Residence Life staff, the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, or other trusted advisors.  Any member of the community, including visitors, may also a contact Safety and Security.  These individuals will in turn notify the Title IX Coordinator. 

All employees receiving reports of a potential violation of College policy are expected to promptly contact the Title IX Coordinator or designee, the Office of Safety and Security, or the Office of Student Conduct within 24 hours of becoming aware of a report or incident.  All initial contacts will be treated with the maximum possible privacy: specific information on any grievances received by any party will be reported to the Title IX Coordinator or designee, but, subject to the College‚Äôs obligation to address violations, every effort will be made to maintain the privacy of those initiating a report of a grievance.  In all cases, the College will give consideration to the reporting party with respect to how the reported misconduct is pursued, but reserves the right, when necessary to protect the community, to investigate and pursue a resolution when an alleged victim chooses not to initiate or participate in a formal grievance.
