VIII. Process for Resolution of Allegations of Discrimination, Harassment (Including Sexual Misconduct, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, Stalking), and/or Retaliation

Once a complaint or notice is received, it will be reviewed and reported to the Title IX Coordinator. Complainants will be asked to either complete a written complaint, or meet with a member of the University’s Anti-Discrimination Panel. Impartial investigator(s) will then be assigned who will conduct an immediate preliminary investigation to determine if this Policy may have been violated. The investigator(s) will consider interim action, accommodations for the alleged victim, or other necessary remedial short-term actions. If it is determined that this Policy may have been violated, the University will initiate a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation, including effective remedies designed to end the discrimination, harassment, or retaliation, prevent recurrence and address the effects on the victim and the community.

To ensure a prompt and thorough investigation of a complaint, the complainant should provide as much of the following information as possible:

  1. A. The name, department, and position of the person or persons allegedly engaging in discrimination, harassment (including sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking), and/or retaliation.
     
  2. A description of the incident(s) including the date, location and the identity of any witnesses.
     
  3. If the complainant is an employee, the alleged effect of the incident on the complainant’s position, salary, benefits, promotional opportunities, or other terms or conditions of employment.
     
  4. If the complainant is a student, the alleged effect of the incident on the complainant’s academic standing, housing environment, or social status or other terms or conditions of the educational environment.
     
  5. The names of other persons who might have witnessed or been subject to the same or similar offenses.
     
  6. Any other information the complainant believes relevant to the discrimination, harassment (including sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking), and/or retaliation.

Actual or Constructive Notice

Regardless of whether a victim files a complaint or requests action, if the University has knowledge, or reasonably should know, about possible discrimination, harassment (including sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking) and/or retaliation, the University will conduct a prompt, thorough and impartial investigation. The University will also prepare a written record of the complaint if the complainant chooses not to file or verify a written complaint form to memorialize the details of the complaint.
