Policy & Procedures
If an individual is navigating a situation involving discrimination, harassment, or sexual violence, they have many reporting options moving forward, ranging from formal to informal responses. Processes and procedures for filing complaints are detailed in the Anti-Discrimination Policy and Sexual Misconduct Policy.
Under Title IX, the grievance procedure must be both “prompt and equitable,” meaning it must be a timely response to discrimination and provide both parties equivalent rights during the investigative process. At CC, investigations are completed within 60 days and both parties are offered the same options. Both parties have the right to have relevant witnesses speak on their behalf, both have the right to appeal, and both are entitled to an advisor of their choice to be present during the investigation. If a student has questions about their options or the process, they can contact the Title IX Coordinator or may also speak confidentially with the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC).
The SARC can be reached in 219 Worner, x8101, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
