A. Initiating A Formal Complaint

A. Initiating a Formal Complaint

When the College learns of potential discrimination or harassment, in most cases outreach will be done by the Title IX Coordinator with the Complainant to identify reporting options (discussed in another section) within and outside the College and to offer supportive measures. The Title IX Coordinator is available to meet to discuss those reporting options with the Complainant or answer questions from the Respondent.

A Complainant who proceeds with a formal complaint must do so in writing, and by filing a complaint with the Title IX Coordinator by hard copy, email, or any other writing evidencing a physical or digital signature, or otherwise verifying the Complainant is filing the complaint. If the Title IX Coordinator signs a formal complaint, the Title IX Coordinator will not become a party or Complainant for purposes of the processes below.
