The college is committed to creating an environment that encourages victims of sexual misconduct to come forward and report their concern. Every effort is made to safeguard the identities of students who seek help and/or report sexual misconduct. Be aware that different individuals that you may contact for assistance following an incident of sexual misconduct will have different responsibilities with regard to confidentiality, depending on their position.

Under state law, some individuals can assure the confidentiality of the victim. This includes counselors, health care providers, spiritual/religious counselors, and certified victims’ advocates. In general, however, other employees cannot guarantee complete confidentiality, unless specifically provided by state law. The college must balance the needs of the individual victim with its obligation to protect the safety and well-being of the community at large. Depending on the circumstance of the alleged incident, a campus safety alert may be posted throughout the campus. These alerts never identify victims or assailants.

Please understand that these are not the only resources available

Additionally, a "No Contact Order" between parties may be issued. This prohibits any contact between the victim and the accused for a specific period of time. Students are able to gain accommodations without filing a formal complaint.

Assistance can also be made regarding alterations to living arrangements, class schedules, on-campus work schedules, transportation, and other interim accommodations which are necessary to promote safety following an allegation of this nature.
