If You've Been Accused

  • Know that you are entitled to a prompt and equitable investigation.
  • Read and review the College’s Student Sexual Misconduct Policy & Procedures (the “Policy”).
    • The Policy provides you with important rights – including, but not limited to, simultaneous written notice of the outcome of an investigation, the opportunity to review certain documentation, a “support person,” and the option to file an appeal.
  • Reach out for support.
    • You are entitled to College support services. (The College’s Title IX Coordinator is available to help you find appropriate assistance).
    • Your friends, family members, and/or members of the clergy may also be good resources.
  • Do not contact the alleged victim (whether by in-person communication, email, phone, social media, through someone else, or otherwise).
    • It is a violation of the Policy to retaliate in any manner against the alleged victim.
    • Even well-meaning communications can be counterproductive.
  • Understand that both you and the alleged victim deserve to be treated with respect and dignity by College employees.
