Investigation

If the Title IX assessment concludes that College disciplinary action may be appropriate, and the reporting party wishes to pursue a formal resolution the College will initiate an investigation.   The Title IX Coordinator or designee will appoint a member(s) of the ERP to conduct the investigation, usually within two business days of determining that a resolution should proceed.  The investigators will conduct the investigation in a manner appropriate to the circumstances of the case, and typically will include interviews with the reporting and responding parties to present statements, witnesses, and other evidence.  The interviews will be supplemented by the gathering of any physical, documentary, or other evidence with appropriate sensitivity and respect.  The investigation will be conducted in a manner that is respectful of the individual privacy concerns. 

At the conclusion of the investigation, the investigator(s) will prepare a report setting forth the facts gathered which will be forwarded to the Title IX Coordinator and the College Administrator responsible for initiating disciplinary resolution proceedings.
