Sexual Misconduct / Title IX - Complaint Procedures
Title IX Complaint Procedures
Reporting an Incident of Sexual Misconduct
Anyone can request advice and information about possible ways to proceed and to put the college on notice. PCC shall investigate complaints pursuant to SP 19-60, Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct Resolution Process.
Reporting a Title IX Complaint
PCC can only respond to allegations of misconduct if it is aware of the misconduct. Further, PCC can more effectively investigate the sooner the allegation is brought to its attention. Any employee, student, authorized volunteer, guest or visitor who believes that he or she has been subjected to sexual misconduct, or believes someone else who is a part of the PCC community is being subjected to sexual misconduct, shall contact the Title IX Coordinator when the alleged victim and/or respondent is a student, employee(s), authorized volunteer, guest(s) or visitor(s). Report a concern or incident.
It is a violation of this procedure to engage in retaliatory acts against any employee or student who reports an incident of sexual misconduct, or any employee or student who testifies, assists or participates in a proceeding, investigation or hearing relating to such allegation of sexual misconduct.
Obligation to Report
As a faculty or staff member of PCC, you have an obligation to report any incidents of alleged sexual harassment that you may witness or that may be reported to you within 24 hours. You should report these situations to the Title IX Coordinator, Ken Nufer, Vice President of Human Resources.
