Community Resources

Confidentiality

Whether you were subjected to any sexual misconduct recently or in the past, you are encouraged to use all available support services.

The College will make reasonable and appropriate efforts to preserve a Complainant’s and Respondent’s privacy and to protect the confidentiality of information. Should a Complainant request confidentiality, however, please know that the College’s ability to respond may be limited, although, where feasible, the College will take reasonable steps to prevent prohibited conduct and limit its effects. It is not possible to provide confidentiality in all cases and the College’s decision to share information with others is subject to the balancing test described below.

If, after assessing a concern as provided above, the College determines there is sufficient basis to initiate a Title IX investigation, the Title IX Coordinator or designee will meet with the Complainant when possible, to provide information about a Title IX investigation. A copy of the policy will be provided to the Complainant.  Before beginning an investigation, the Title IX Coordinator will contact the Complainant and request consent from the Complainant to proceed to an investigation. An investigation may still go forward even if the Complainant refuses consent, if appropriate, subject to the balancing test provided by the Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights’ April 4, 2011 Dear Colleague Letter, which states that in such cases, institutions should balance:

The seriousness of the alleged harassment

  • The Complainant’s age
  • Whether there have been other harassment complaints about the same individual

The alleged harasser or assailant’s rights to receive information about the allegations if the information is maintained by the school as an “education record” under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), 20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 C.F.R. Part 99.

In summary, although the College’s goal is to limit the number of individuals who may learn about an allegation of Prohibited Conduct or an investigation, the College cannot guarantee confidentiality in all matters.
