This page provides links and contact information (both on and off campus) for making reports of sexual misconduct.


Reporting to Law Enforcement & Campus Safety

 

The right of individuals to report to law enforcement is supported, but the College also acknowledges that some individuals do not want to report their experiences with sexual misconduct or bias-related incidents/hate crimes to law enforcement. Any individual who would like to report to law enforcement can be assisted through the Campus Advocate (for sexual misconduct) or Campus Safety.

Anonymous Reporting

​​​​​​Anyone wishing to make an anonymous report can contact the Campus Conduct Hotline at (866) 943-5787, which is available 24 hours a day.


Amnesty for Reporting Party and Witnesses

Sometimes, reporting parties or witnesses are hesitant to report to College officials or participate in resolution processes because they fear that they themselves may be accused of policy violations, such as violating the drug or alcohol policy at the time of the incident. To encourage reporting, reporting parties and witnesses are offered amnesty from minor drug or alcohol policy violations related to the incident.

While some policy violations cannot be completely overlooked, educational options will be provided, rather than discipline, to those who offer assistance to others in need. Amnesty may be granted on a case-by-case basis for other policy violations and will be evaluated by the Assistant Vice President of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
