Any person may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment (whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to be the victim of conduct that could constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment), in person, by mail, by telephone, or by e-mail, using the contact information listed for the Title IX Coordinator, or by any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the person’s verbal or written report. Such a report may be made at any time, including during non-business hours, by using the telephone number or e-mail address, or by mail to the office address, listed for the Title IX Coordinator.
Individuals are responsible for immediately reporting any knowledge or information concerning sexual harassment to the SKC Title IX Coordinator identified in this policy. This includes unwelcome conduct of a sexual or gender-based nature, whether committed on-campus, or off campus where SKC has control over the respondent or the context of the harassment.
SKC encourages victims of sexual harassment to talk with a counselor. Employees within the scope of SKC’s resources (CPW Center for Prevention and Wellness) have different obligations to maintain a victim’s confidentiality.
- Center for Prevention and Wellness Counselors are required to maintain near complete confidentiality; talking to them is sometimes called a “privileged communication.”
- Center for Prevention and Wellness employees may talk to a victim in confidence, and generally only report to SKC that an incident occurred without revealing any personally identifying information. Disclosures to these employees will not trigger a College investigation into an incident against the complainant’s wishes.
- Employees are required to report all the details of an incident (including the identities of both the complainant and respondent) to the Title IX Coordinator. A report to SKC employees constitutes a report to SKC and places SKC on notice to take appropriate steps to address the situation.
