In cases related to sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, sex discrimination, domestic violence, dating violence, and/or stalking (i.e., cases that fall under Title IX and/or the Violence Against Women Act) the disciplinary process will proceed as follows:
Fact Finding Investigation
In cases related to sexual misconduct, sex discrimination, sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence, and/or domestic violence, a fact-finding inquiry will be conducted by the Title IX Coordinator or Investigator. This fact-finding phase will include interviews with accused students, complainants/reporting parties, witnesses, and anyone who may have information related to the alleged incident. The information gathered through these interviews will be documented. During the fact-finding phase, the college will implement appropriate remediation measures, including but not limited to interim-suspension, housing or academic accommodations, and/or No-Contact Orders to ensure the safety of the college community. The College’s Sexual Violence Prevention and Response web page can provide additional information.
Complaint Received/Application of Charges
After a complaint is received related to sexual misconduct, sex discrimination, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and/or stalking, the Director of Community Standards or designee will review the report(s). If the college proceeds with the application of charges under the Student Code of Conduct, the Director of Community Standards or designee will meet with both parties to discuss and explain the hearing process.
