Reporting Sexual Misconduct

The following reporting options are available for incidents of sexual misconduct, sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination. These reporting options are available at any time, and have no time limit, although reporting is encouraged as soon as possible following an incident.

Reporting to the Institution-to a College Official

We encourage you to report incidents of sexual misconduct to the College so that immediate action can be taken to stop the conduct, prevent its recurrence and address its effects. The following individuals are trained to take reports of sexual misconduct. You may bring someone with you to support you while making a report. Please note: reporting a concern direclty or through an online form does not automatically trigger a campus investigaton, we would have an assessment and evalution to determine next steps
