Title IX - Sexual Misconduct
Confidential Resources & Reporting Options
All individuals are encouraged to seek the support of on and off campus resources, regardless of when or where the incident occurred. Trained professionals can provide guidance in making decisions, information about available resources and procedural options, and assistance to either party in the event that a report and/or resolution under the Procedure is pursued. In general, the College provides two categories of resources: Confidential Resources and Reporting Options.
The trained professionals designated below can provide counseling, information, and support in a confidential setting while working in the counselor role with clients who authorize the counselor/client relationship via a disclosure document. As confidential resources, counselors will not share information about a patient/client (including whether that individual has received services) without the individual’s express written permission unless there is a continuing threat of serious harm to the student or to others or there is a legal obligation to reveal such information (e.g., suspected abuse or neglect of a minor, elderly person, court ordered subpoena).

The College encourages a Reporting Party to promptly report Prohibited Conduct directly to the Title IX Coordinator, the Office of the Enrollment and Student Experience or the Director Campus Safety and Security or any responsible employee on the campus.
The College encourages all individuals to promptly report Prohibited Conduct so that immediate and corrective action can be taken to eliminate the conduct, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects. The College will provide support and assistance and will respond consistent with the procedural options available at the time of the report. Upon receipt of a report, the Title IX Coordinator will make an immediate assessment of the risk of harm to the parties or to the broader campus community and will take steps necessary to address any risks. These steps will include establishing Interim Protective Measures to provide for the safety of the parties and the campus community and, where appropriate, referral to the Campus Safety and Security Department to assess whether any individual poses a serious threat of disruption of the academic process or a continuing danger to other members of the College community or College property.
The College recognizes that deciding whether to make a report and choosing how to proceed are personal decisions that may evolve over time. At the time a report is made, a Reporting Party does not have to decide whether to request any particular course of action. Through a coordinated effort, staff from the offices below provide support to assist each individual in making these important decisions, and consistent with the goal of safety for all community members, these staff will make every effort to respect an individual’s autonomy in making the determination as to how to proceed.
Any individual can also make a report to external law enforcement agencies from either county or with jurisdiction in the county where the event occurred.

Any individual may make a report of Prohibited Conduct to the College without disclosing one’s name (an “anonymous report”) and without identifying the Responding Partyer requesting any action. Depending on the level of information available about the incident or the individuals involved, the College’s ability to respond to an anonymous report may be limited.
Under North Carolina law enforcement procedures, a Reporting Party can submit a “blind report” to Director of Campus Safety and Security or other law enforcement agency. The blind report refers to how law enforcement records will be maintained and accessed. A blind report, while not anonymous, allows a Reporting Party to provide information about criminal conduct without having their identity associated with that report for the purposes of law enforcement records.
Director of Campus Safety and Security can elect to designate a report as a blind report even after a Reporting Party has provided their identifying information. Please note that the designation of information as a blind report does not impact the Director of Campus Safety and Security’s obligation to share the information with the Title IX Coordinator.
