What Happens When a Report Is Filed?
Following a report of discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment or sexual violence, the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator (for matters involving employees) will designate an individual(s) to conduct an investigation. As part of the investigation, as appropriate, the investigator(s) will meet with the reporting party, meet with the responding party, conduct additional interviews with fact witnesses, and gather relevant documentation. All investigations will be thorough, reliable and impartial.
Anonymous reports of discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and sexual violence are accepted. All reasonable steps to investigate and respond to such reports will be undertaken. However, the College's ability to respond to anonymous complaints may be limited.
Privacy of the parties is a top priority to the College. However, sometimes limited information must be disclosed to fully investigate a report. The College will weigh the impacted party's request for confidentiality in determining whether or how to proceed with an investigation. In some instances, to protect the safety of the STLCC community, an investigation may still go forward even if the impacted party refuses to participate with the investigation.
If the reported Title IX Policy violation constitutes a reportable offense under the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, the Title IX coordinator is required to report basic non-identifying information to the College's Police Department. Further, the College may have to provide a timely warning in a manner likely to reach all members of the campus community in order to safeguard students and campus employees.
Retaliation Is Prohibited
Retaliation against an individual because the individual filed a complaint alleging a violation of Title IX; participated in a Title IX investigation, hearing or proceeding; or advocated for others' Title IX rights is prohibited. Individuals are not to be intimidated, threatened, coerced or discriminated against for engaging in such activity. Any person who participates in such retaliation shall be subject to disciplinary action.
Though the College encourages all individuals to bring reports of discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and sexual violence to the attention of the Title IX coordinator and/or deputy Title IX coordinator, students who seek support but wish to maintain their confidentiality may contact mental health counselors available free of charge on each campus.
