Policies and procedures for students
When behavior referenced in a Title IX complaint involves a student, the College will utilize the procedures for resolving charges of sexual misconduct outlined in the Code of Conduct and adjudicated through the Office of Community Standards as described in the student handbook, The Compass.
Polices and procedures for employees
When behavior referenced in a Title IX complaint involves a member of the faculty, administration or staff, the College will utilize the procedures for resolving charges of sexual misconduct outlined in Human Resources’ policies and procedures. For faculty the Faculty Handbook and for administration and staff the Employee Handbook.
There are three federal laws that establish responsibilities for employees of colleges to report certain types of crimes and incidents, especially sexual misconduct—Title IX, along with the Clery Act and Title VII. The responsibilities established by these laws give rise to the term “mandatory or mandated reporter.” The College has defined all employees, both faculty and professional staff, as mandated reporters and to that end these members of our community have access to training and information regarding the laws and guidance. If you have any questions about this please contact the Title IX coordinator.
