Reporting Processes

Confidential Reporting

If you are a victim or know of a victim of sexual violence, you are encouraged to report the incident. If you desire that details of the incident be kept confidential, you may speak with off-campus sexual violence crisis resources who can maintain confidentiality.

Formal Reporting Options

You are encouraged to speak to officials of the institution to make formal reports of incidents (deans, vice presidents, campus security, or human resources). You have the right and can expect to have incidents of sexual misconduct to be taken seriously by the College when formally reported, and to have those incidents investigated and properly resolved through administrative procedures. Formal reporting means that only people who need to know will be told and information will be shared only as necessary with investigators, witnesses, and the accused individual.

If the sexual misconduct involves an allegation against an employee contact Barbara Scales, MSCC Chief Compliance, Equity & Inclusion Officer, Affirmative Action Officer, Title IX Coordinator.

If the incident involves an allegation by a student to another student, contact Regina Burden, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs. Crouch Center, Room 2004.

Individuals with complaints of sexual misconduct also always have the right to file a formal complaint with the United States Department Education.
