As soon as possible, but within fourteen (14) days after receipt of the written complaint, the Title IX Coordinator shall review the materials contained in the written complaint, and may either commence an investigation of the complaint or appoint a designee(s) to investigate or co-investigate the complaint.  Such an investigation may include initial meetings with the Complainant and with the Respondent and a discussion of possible avenues for resolution of the complaint.  Immediate protective measures or remedies may be implemented to respond to the complaint.

As soon as possible, but within a 60 days after the end of the information processing, the Title IX Coordinator will notify the Complainant in writing of the outcome of the investigation.

  • If the Complainant fails to respond within the time limits provided, upon written notice of such failure, the complaint may be deemed to have been withdrawn or the College may proceed without the complainant’s active participation.
