Title IX and Sexual Assault

Link to text version of "Consent is" graphic.

日本一本道a不卡免费Harvey Mudd College strives to maintain an environment for students, faculty, and staff that is free of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence. All members of the College community should be aware that the College is prepared to take prompt remedial action to prevent and address such behavior and remedy its effects.

If you have questions or would like to talk to someone, please contact Interim Title IX Coordinator Leslie Hughes at lhughes@hmc.edu or 909.621.8301.

SEXUAL MISCONDUCT AND COMPLAINT RESOLUTION POLICY*

I. Institutional Values and Community Expectations

Harvey Mudd College (“College” or “HMC”) is committed to providing a non-discriminatory and harassment-free educational, living, and working environment for all members of the HMC community, including students, faculty, administrators, staff, and visitors. The College will not tolerate sexual harassment or other forms of prohibited conduct. This Sexual Misconduct and Complaint Resolution Policy (“Policy”) prohibits all forms of sexual or gender-based harassment, discrimination, and other misconduct, including non-consensual sexual contact, non-consensual sexual penetration, sexual exploitation, intimate partner violence, and stalking. Misconduct of this nature is contrary to HMC’s institutional values and is prohibited by state and federal law.

HMC encourages the prompt reporting of any incident of sexual or gender-based misconduct to the College and to local law enforcement or civil rights enforcement agencies. Upon receipt of a report, the College will take prompt and effective action by: supporting the individual who makes a report or seeks assistance under this Policy (“Reporting Party”); conducting a review of the reported conduct under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”); addressing the safety of individuals and the campus community; and as warranted, taking disciplinary action against the accused individual (“Responding Party”). The College’s process for investigating and responding to reported Prohibited Conduct by students are contained in the Appendix A (Procedures for Resolving Complaints Against Students).

Retaliation (defined in Section VII.F. of this Policy) should be reported promptly to the Title IX Coordinator for investigation, which may result in disciplinary action independent of any sanction or interim measures imposed in response to the underlying allegations of discrimination and/or harassment.

日本一本道a不卡免费The College encourages all members of our community to participate in the process of creating a safe, welcoming, and respectful environment on campus. In particular, the College expects that all HMC community members will take reasonable and prudent actions to prevent or stop an act of sexual misconduct. Taking action may include directly intervening when safe to do so, enlisting the assistance of friends, contacting law enforcement, or seeking assistance from a person in authority. Community members who chose to exercise this positive moral obligation will be supported by the College and protected from retaliation.

II. Policy Statement: Scope of Policy

A. Policy

日本一本道a不卡免费All forms of sexual or gender-based discrimination, harassment or other misconduct, including non-consensual sexual contact, non-consensual sexual penetration, sexual exploitation, intimate partner violence, and stalking, are prohibited conduct. Retaliation against any person or group who makes a complaint, cooperates with an investigation, or participates in a grievance procedure is also a violation of this Policy. Misconduct of this nature (“Prohibited Conduct”) is contrary to HMC’s institutional values, is a violation of College policy, and will not be tolerated. Any individual who is found to have violated this Policy may face disciplinary sanctions up to and including expulsion and/or termination of employment.

B. Scope of Policy

This Policy applies to all faculty, staff, and students of the College. It also applies to third parties (including but not limited to trustees, applicants, volunteers, campus visitors, and vendors) who may have contact with members of the HMC community either on the HMC campus or at off-campus HMC events, programs, and activities.

日本一本道a不卡免费For purposes of this Policy, the Reporting Party is the person who is the subject or target of the reported misconduct. The Responding Party is the person, group, or organization alleged to be responsible for the reported misconduct. A third party refers to any other participant in the process, including a witness or an individual who makes a report of conduct prohibited by this Policy. A witness may include an individual who observed behavior that is alleged to constitute a violation of policy or who communicated with one of the parties subsequent to an alleged incident of prohibited conduct.

This Policy applies to conduct occurring on campus or in connection with College-related off-campus events, programs, and activities, such as College functions hosted in private homes, off-site conferences and meetings, and College-sponsored study-abroad, internship, research, and other programs. The Policy also may apply to conduct that occurred off-campus, but not at HMC-sponsored events, program or activities, if both parties are members of the HMC community, and if the conduct could have a substantial adverse effect on or poses a threat to members of the HMC community.

日本一本道a不卡免费A Reporting Party is encouraged to report misconduct regardless of where the incident occurred or who committed it. Even if the College does not have jurisdiction over the Responding Party, the College will still take prompt action to attempt to provide for the safety and well-being of the Reporting Party and the broader campus community. Under the Clery Act and the Campus SaVE Act, the College will record and report all violations of this Policy.

III. Oversight and Enforcement Responsibility

日本一本道a不卡免费The administration and enforcement of this Policy is the responsibility of the College’s Title IX Coordinator. Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that provides:

“No person in the United States shall on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

The Title IX Coordinator oversees the College’s centralized review, investigation, and resolution of reports of Prohibited Conduct. The Title IX Coordinator also oversees the College’s overall compliance with Title IX.

日本一本道a不卡免费The Title IX Coordinator is:

  • Responsible for oversight of the investigation and resolution of all reports of all forms of Prohibited Conduct involving students, staff, administrators, faculty, vendors, and visitors;
  • Assisted by designated Deputy Title IX Coordinators in student affairs, human resources, and the faculty, and by a Title IX team as detailed in this Policy. These Deputy Title IX Coordinators have a shared responsibility for supporting the Title IX Coordinator and are accessible to any member of the community for consultation and guidance;
  • Knowledgeable and trained in College policies and procedures and relevant state and federal laws;
  • Available to advise any individual, including a Reporting Party, a Responding Party, or a third party, about the formal and informal courses of action available at the College and the courses of action available in the community;
  • Available to provide assistance to any College employee regarding how to respond appropriately to a report of Prohibited
    Conduct;
  • Responsible for monitoring full compliance with all procedural requirements and timeframes outlined in this Policy; and
  • Responsible for training, prevention, and education efforts and periodic reviews of climate and culture.

日本一本道a不卡免费The Title IX team supports the Title IX Coordinator. Members of this interdepartmental team include the Title IX Coordinator and the Deputy Title IX Coordinators. In addition, depending on the roles of the Reporting Party and the Responding Party, the Title IX team could include the Assistant Vice President for Human Resources, the Dean of the Faculty, and/or a representative from the Division of Student Affairs. Composition of the team will be limited to a small circle of individuals who “need to know” to implement procedures under this Policy.

The College’s Interim Title IX Coordinator, Leslie Hughes, can be reached in person at Platt Campus Center, by phone at 909.621.8301, or by email at lhughes@cctvlcdmonitor.com. The names and contact information of HMC’s Deputy Title IX Coordinators can be found at http://www.cctvlcdmonitor.com/student-life/title-ix-sexual-misconduct/.

日本一本道a不卡免费Inquiries or complaints concerning the application of Title IX may be directed to the College’s Title IX Coordinator, to the Deputy Title IX Coordinators, and/or to the U.S. Department of Education’s:

IV. Privacy vs. Confidentiality

The College is committed to protecting the privacy of all individuals who are involved in a report of Prohibited Conduct. All College employees who are involved in the College’s Title IX response, including the Title IX Coordinator, investigators, and hearing panel members, receive specific instruction about respecting and safeguarding private information. Throughout the process, every effort will be made to protect the privacy interests of all individuals involved in a manner consistent with the need for a thorough review of the report.

Privacy and confidentiality have distinct meanings under this Policy.

or . The Employee Assistance Program日本一本道a不卡免费 is a resource for faculty and staff. are also available to counsel students, faculty, and staff on a confidential basis.

日本一本道a不卡免费All participants in a complaint resolution process involving an alleged violation of this Policy will be informed that confidentiality helps enhance the integrity of the process, protect the privacy interests of the parties, and protect the participants from statements that might be interpreted to be retaliatory or defamatory. At the beginning of the process, the Reporting Party and Responding Party will be asked to keep information related to the process private during the pendency of the process. This does not preclude the Reporting Party or Responding Party from sharing information with family, legal counsel, advisors/support persons, or others as necessary in connection with the marshalling and presentation of evidence in connection with the process. Witnesses and support persons will, similarly, be asked to respect the privacy of the process.

日本一本道a不卡免费If you are a victim or survivor of sexual misconduct, the sooner you seek help, the more options you have available to you. The following steps are important to take as soon as possible.

VII. Reporting

The College encourages all individuals to seek assistance from a medical provider and/or law enforcement immediately after an incident of sexual violence. This is the best option to ensure preservation of evidence and to begin a timely investigative and remedial response.

日本一本道a不卡免费The College also encourages all individuals to make a report to the College and law enforcement. The College will provide assistance in notifying law enforcement if the individual so chooses. An individual who experiences sexual violence also has the right to decline to notify law enforcement.

Making a report to the College and law enforcement are not mutually exclusive. Both internal and criminal reports may be pursued simultaneously. The College has a strong interest in supporting individuals who have been subjected to sexual violence and other forms of Prohibited Conduct.

Making a report means telling someone in authority what happened, whether in person, by telephone, in writing, or by email. At the time a report is made, a Reporting Party does not have to decide whether or not to request any particular course of action, nor does a Reporting Party need to know how to label what happened. Choosing to make a report, and deciding how to proceed after making the report, can be a process that unfolds over time.

The College provides support that can assist each individual in making these important decisions and, to the extent legally possible, will respect an individual’s autonomy in deciding how to proceed. In this process, the College will balance the individual’s interest with its obligation to provide a safe and non-discriminatory environment for all members of the College community.

Any individual who reports Prohibited Conduct can be assured that all reports will be investigated and resolved in a fair and impartial manner. A Reporting Party, a Responding Party, and all individuals involved can expect to be treated with dignity and respect. Upon any report under this Policy, the College will make an immediate assessment of any risk of harm to the Reporting Party or to the broader campus community and will take reasonable steps necessary to address those risks. Such steps will include interim measures to provide for the safety of the individual and the campus community.

Reports may also be submitted to:

Office: Pendleton Business Building
Hours: 24/7
日本一本道a不卡免费 Website: Campus Safety

 and (2) 

日本一本道a不卡免费Upon receiving an anonymous report, the Title IX Coordinator will determine any appropriate steps, including individual or community remedies as appropriate, in consultation with the Assistant Vice President of Campus Safety and in compliance with all Clery Act obligations.

VIII. Interim Measures (Supportive & Protective)

, or the . In addition, students and/or employees may file a complaint with the .

A person who believes he or she has experienced discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, or retaliation should be aware that both state and federal law impose time deadlines for the filing of complaints, and that the use of the Internal Complaint Resolution processes described in this Policy and the Prohibited Discrimination and Harassment Policy will not change such filing deadlines.

In addition to HMC’s internal Complaint Resolution processes, an individual who is subjected to sexual misconduct may have recourse through the criminal justice system and/or civil litigation (including the right to seek a temporary restraining order and injunction prohibiting harassment pursuant to California Civil Code, section 527.6). HMC will provide full and prompt cooperation and assistance in notifying the proper law enforcement personnel if the individual chooses to pursue such legal action.

A criminal investigation into an allegation of sexual misconduct does not relieve or substitute for HMC’s duty and authority to conduct its own prompt review of a complaint. Accordingly, HMC will typically not wait for the conclusion of a criminal investigation or proceeding to begin its own concurrent investigation and resolution of an alleged violation. The standards for criminal proceedings differ from those used in campus proceedings. As a result, conduct that may not be subject to criminal action may still be addressed through HMC’s processes and procedures. A finding of “not guilty” in a criminal matter does not necessarily preclude a finding of an HMC policy violation in a campus proceeding.

Appendix C: What to do if you experience Sexual/Gender Violence

The first priority for a person who is sexually assaulted or subjected to another form of sexual/gender based violence is to seek safety. If there is an immediate danger or need for an emergency police or medical response, persons on campus should call Campus Safety at 909.607.2000 and/or dial 911. For persons off campus, dial 911.

日本一本道a不卡免费Persons who experience any form of sexual misconduct are encouraged to seek support, as soon as possible, from someone trusted, such as a friend, family member, HMC faculty or staff member, or from one of the campus or community resources listed below.

On-Call Student Affairs Staff Students can reach an on-call staff member (commonly referred to as the “AD”) 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling Campus Safety 909.607.2000 and asking to be put in touch with the AD. Campus Safety will notify the AD who, in turn, will promptly contact the student directly.

Persons who experience sexual assault (particularly rape, forcible oral copulation or sodomy) are urged to seek medical treatment as soon as possible by going to the nearest hospital emergency room, specialized sexual assault treatment and trauma center, Student Health Services, or private physician.

The emergency room nearest HMC, which is also a County designated SART Center, is located at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, 1798 N. Garey Avenue, Pomona, CA 91767, 909.865.9500SART is a trauma informed/ survivor sensitive program designed to provide a team approach to responding to sexual assaults. Survivors may take a Support Person with them to the hospital. If assistance is needed in arranging for transportation or if a student would like a member of the HMC staff to accompany the student to the hospital, contact Campus Safety at 909.607.2000日本一本道a不卡免费 and ask that the AD staff member be contacted. An AD is available whenever the College offices are closed to assist students in emergency situations.

Individuals who promptly seek medical attention benefit from being examined for physical injury, receiving preventative treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, a toxicology examination for date rape drugs, and emergency contraception. In addition, prompt reporting allows for the preservation of evidence, which will only be used if an individual decides (then or later) to press criminal charges or file civil suit.

To preserve evidence, an individual should not bathe, douche, smoke, brush your teeth or change clothes (a change of clothes should be brought along). If clothes have been changed, the original clothes should be put in a paper bag (plastic bags damage evidence) and brought to the hospital. Do not disturb the scene of the assault. If it is not possible to leave the scene undisturbed, evidence (e.g. bedding, towels, loose fabrics, prophylactics, and clothing) should be placed in separate paper bags to be preserved.

日本一本道a不卡免费Time is a critical factor in collecting and preserving evidence. The physical evidence of an assault is most effectively collected within the first 24-48 hours of the assault, but some evidence may be collected for up to 72 hours. If, however, a report of an incident is made days, weeks, or even months after the assault, important support systems are still available and can be arranged, but the delay may make it more difficult to collect physical evidence of the sexual assault that could impact a criminal prosecution or civil lawsuit.

日本一本道a不卡免费Hospitals that treat any physical injury sustained during a sexual assault are required to report it to law enforcement. An individual can choose whether or not to speak to police at the hospital and does not need to make an immediate decision to press criminal charges. That decision can be made at a later time.

If an individual does not wish to go to the hospital, Planned Parenthood, 1550 N Garey Avenue, Pomona, CA 91767, 800.576.5544may be contacted, which has healthcare providers who can test and provide preservative treatment for sexually transmitted diseases or an individual can see a personal health care provider for tests and treatment.

Appendix D: Frequently Asked Questions

日本一本道a不卡免费Below are some questions regarding sexual misconduct that are often asked by students:

1. Does information about a complaint remain confidential?

日本一本道a不卡免费The confidentiality of all parties to a complaint of sexual misconduct must be respected, insofar as it does not interfere with the College’s obligation to fully investigate allegations of sexual misconduct. Where confidentiality is not strictly kept, it will still be tightly controlled on a need-to-know basis. Dissemination of information and/or written materials to persons not involved in the complaint procedure is not permitted.

日本一本道a不卡免费Violations of the privacy of the Reporting Party or the Responding Party may lead to disciplinary action by the College. In all complaints of sexual misconduct, both parties will be informed of the outcome. In some instances, the College may choose to make a brief public announcement of the nature of the violation and the action taken, without using the name or identifiable information of the alleged survivor. Certain College administrators are informed of the outcome within the bounds of student privacy (e.g., the President, Dean of Students, Director of Campus Safety, Title IX Coordinator). If there is a report of alleged sexual misconduct to the College and there is evidence that a felony has occurred, local police will be notified if the Reporting Party consents. This does not mean charges will be automatically filed or that a Reporting Party must speak with the police. The College also must statistically report the occurrence on campus of major violent crimes, including certain sex offenses, in an annual report of campus crime statistics. This statistical report does not include personally identifiable information.

2. Will I (as a survivor) have to pay for counseling/or medical care?

日本一本道a不卡免费Students can access the CUC’s Student Health and Counseling Services, and the Counseling Services also hosts a support group for survivors of sexual assault. If you are accessing community and non-institutional services, payment for these services may be covered by your health insurance plan; please check your coverage. If you have elected coverage under the Claremont College’s Student Health Insurance Plan (“SHIP”), payment for these services may also be covered under this insurance plan. SHIP documentation is available at: .

3. What, if anything, will my parents be told?

日本一本道a不卡免费The College’s primary relationship is to you, the student, and not to your parent/guardian. College officials will only speak with your parents/guardians at your request or when there is a significant threat to your health or safety.

4. Do I have to name the alleged perpetrator?

Yes, if you want the College to pursue its Investigation and Resolution Processes as outlined in the College’s Policy on Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Misconduct and Retaliation. No, if you choose to respond informally and do not file a formal complaint. You should consult the confidentiality provisions set forth in the policy in Section 12 of the Policy. Reporting Parties should be aware that not identifying the alleged perpetrator may limit the College’s ability to respond comprehensively.

5. Will the alleged perpetrator know my identity?

日本一本道a不卡免费Yes, if you file a formal complaint. Sexual misconduct is a serious offense and the Responding Party has the right to know the identity of the Reporting Party/survivor.

6. What do I do if I am accused of sexual misconduct?

日本一本道a不卡免费DO NOT contact the Responding Party. You may want to speak with someone in the campus community who can act as your Support Person/advisor. The Title IX Coordinator can explain the College’s resolution processes for addressing sexual misconduct complaints. You may also want to seek confidential counseling through the Student Health and Counseling Services or seek support through off-campus services in the community.

7. What about legal advice?

Reporting Parties do not need private legal counsel to pursue criminal prosecution because representation will be handled by the District Attorney’s office. However, you may want to retain an attorney if you are considering filing a civil action. Responding Parties may want to retain legal counsel given the potential for criminal and/or civil action.

8. What about changing residence hall rooms or other accommodations?

日本一本道a不卡免费Either party may request a room change through the Title IX Coordinator who will work with the Dean of Students Office. Other accommodations available to the parties may include:

  • Assistance with or rescheduling an academic assignment (paper, exams, etc.);
  • Assistance in requesting an incomplete in a class;
  • Assistance with transferring class sections, if available;
  • Temporary withdrawal;
  • Assistance with alternative course completion options; and
  • Other accommodations for safety as necessary.

9. What should I do about obtaining medical treatment and preserving evidence of a sexual assault?

日本一本道a不卡免费Survivors of a sexual assault (particularly rape, forcible oral copulation or sodomy) are urged to seek medical treatment as soon as possible by going to the nearest hospital emergency room, specialized sexual assault treatment and trauma center, Student Health Services, or private physician.

The emergency room nearest HMC, which is also a County designated SART Center, is located at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, 1798 N. Garey Avenue, Pomona, CA 91767, (909) 865-9500. SART is a trauma informed/ survivor sensitive program designed to provide a team approach to responding to sexual assaults. Survivors may take a Support Person with them to the hospital. If you need assistance arranging for transportation or would like a member of the HMC staff to accompany you to the hospital. Contact Campus Safety at (909) 607-2000 and ask that the On-Call Student Affairs staff member be contacted. An On-Call Student Affairs Staff member (aka AD) is available whenever the College offices are closed to assist students in emergency situations.

日本一本道a不卡免费Survivors who promptly seek medical attention benefit from being examined for physical injury, receiving preventative treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, a toxicology examination for date rape drugs, and emergency contraception. In addition, prompt reporting allows for the preservation of evidence, which will only be used if you decide (then or later) to press criminal charges or file civil suit.

To preserve evidence, you should NOT bathe, douche, smoke, brush your teeth or change clothes (a change of clothes should be brought along). If clothes have been changed, the original clothes should be put in a paper bag (plastic bags damage evidence) and brought to the hospital. Do not disturb the scene of the assault. If it is not possible to leave the scene undisturbed, evidence (e.g. bedding, towels, loose fabrics, prophylactics, and clothing) should be placed in separate paper bags to be preserved.

日本一本道a不卡免费Time is a critical factor in collecting and preserving evidence. The physical evidence of an assault is most effectively collected within the first 24-48 hours of the assault, but some evidence may be collected for up to 72 hours. If, however, you choose to report the incident days, weeks, or even months after the assault, important support systems are still available and can be arranged, but you need to know that delay may make it more difficult to collect physical evidence of the sexual assault that could impact a criminal prosecution or civil lawsuit.

Hospitals that treat any physical injury sustained during a sexual assault are required to report it to law enforcement. You may choose whether or not to speak to police at the hospital and do not need to make an immediate decision to press criminal charges. That decision can be made at a later time.

日本一本道a不卡免费If you do not wish to go to the hospital you may choose to contact Planned Parenthood, 1550 N Garey Avenue, Pomona, CA 91767, (800) 576-5544, which has healthcare providers who can test and provide preservative treatment for sexually transmitted diseases or see a personal health care provider for tests and treatment.

10. Will the Reporting Party be sanctioned when reporting a sexual misconduct if they have illegally used drugs or alcohol?

No. The severity of the infraction will determine the nature of the College’s response, but whenever possible the College will respond educationally rather than punitively to the illegal use of drugs and/or alcohol. The seriousness of sexual misconduct is a major concern and the College does not want any of the circumstances (e.g., drug or alcohol use) to inhibit the reporting of sexual misconduct.

11. Will the use of drugs or alcohol affect the outcome of a sexual misconduct complaint?

日本一本道a不卡免费The use of alcohol and/or drugs by either party will not diminish the Responding Party’s responsibility. On the other hand, alcohol and/or drug use is likely to affect the Reporting Party’s memory and, therefore, may affect the outcome of the complaint. A person bringing a complaint of sexual misconduct must either remember the alleged incident or have sufficient circumstantial evidence, physical evidence and/or witnesses to support their complaint. If the Reporting Party does not remember the circumstances of the alleged incident, it may not be possible to impose sanctions on the Responding Party without further corroborating information. Use of alcohol and/or other drugs will never excuse a violation by a Responding Party.

12. Will either party’s prior use of drugs and/or alcohol be a factor when reporting sexual misconduct?

日本一本道a不卡免费Not unless there is a compelling reason to believe that prior use or abuse is relevant to the present complaint.

13. What should I do if I am uncertain about what happened?

If you believe that you have experienced sexual misconduct, but are unsure of whether it was a violation of the College Policy, you should contact the College’s Title IX Coordinator who can explain the Policy and resolution options. If you would like to speak with someone in strict confidence to explore the incident, you may want to first speak with a counselor at Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services, a chaplain from the McAlister Center, the EmPOWER center or a rape crisis hotline.

Prevention: If you find yourself in the position of being the initiator of sexual behavior, you owe sexual respect to your potential partner and yourself. These suggestions may help you avoid committing a nonconsensual sexual act and reduce your risk of being accused of sexual misconduct:

  • Clearly communicate your intentions to your sexual partner and give your partner a chance to clearly communicate intentions to you.
  • Understand and respect personal boundaries. Do not pressure a potential partner.
  • DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS about consent; about someone’s sexual availability; about whether the individual is attracted to you; about how far you can go or about whether the individual is physically and/or mentally able to consent. If there are any questions or if there is any ambiguity then you DO NOT have consent and you should stop.
  • If you think you are receiving unclear or conflicting messages from your partner, this is a clear indication that you should stop, defuse any sexual tension and communicate better.
  • Don’t take advantage of someone’s drunkenness, drugged, or otherwise incapacitated state, even if the individual personally caused this.
  • Realize that your potential partner could be intimidated by you, or fearful. You may have a power advantage simply because of your gender or size. Don’t abuse that power.
  • Understand that consent to some form of sexual behavior does not automatically equal consent to any other form of sexual behavior.
  • Silence and passivity cannot be interpreted as an indication of consent. Read your potential partner carefully, paying attention to verbal and non-verbal communication and body language. If you are not sure, stop.

Risk Reduction: Risk reduction tips can, unintentionally, take a victim-blaming tone. With no intention to victim- blame, and with recognition that only those who commit sexual violence are responsible for such conduct, these suggestions may nevertheless help you to reduce your risk of experiencing a non-consensual sexual act.

  • If you have sexual limits, make them known as early as possible.
  • If you do not want to engage in a particular activity, tell the other person “NO” clearly and firmly.
  • Try to remove yourself from the physical presence of a sexual aggressor, if you can do so safely.
  • If someone is nearby, ask for help or if it is safe to do so, text or call someone.
  • Take affirmative responsibility for your alcohol intake/drug use and acknowledge that alcohol/drugs lower your sexual inhibitions and may make you vulnerable to someone who views a drunk or high person as a sexual opportunity.
  • Take care of your friends and ask that they take care of you. A real friend will challenge you if you are about to make a mistake. Respect them when they do.

Appendix F: Harvey Mudd College’s External Reporting, Timely Warning, and FERPA Disclosure Obligations

I. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (“Clery Act”)

A. Statistical Reporting

Under the Clery Act, certain College officials have a duty to report certain misconduct for federal statistical reporting purposes. All personally identifiable information is kept confidential, but statistical information must be passed along to campus law enforcement regarding the type of incident and its general location (on or off-campus, in the surrounding area, but no addresses are given) for publication in the annual Campus Security Report. This report helps to provide the community with a clear picture of the extent and nature of campus crime, to ensure greater community safety. Mandated federal reporters include: student/conduct affairs staff, campus law enforcement, local police, coaches, athletic directors, residence life staff, student activities staff, human resources staff, advisors to student organizations and any other official with significant responsibility for student and campus activities. The information to be shared includes the date, the location of the incident (using Clery location categories) and the Clery crime category. This reporting protects the identity of the survivors and may be done anonymously.

The Clery Act permits the College to publicly release the name, the nature of the violation and the sanction(s) for any student who is found in violation of a College policy that is a “crime of violence,” including: arson, burglary, robbery, criminal homicide, sex offenses, assault, intimidation (which may encompass stalking and/or bullying), hazing, destruction/ damage/vandalism of property and kidnapping/abduction. The College will release this information to the Reporting Party in any of these offenses regardless of the outcome. FERPA allows for the release of student records beyond the Clery exceptions discussed above. Harvey Mudd College reserves the right to exercise discretion in making specific outcome information available to the community at large.

B. Timely Warning

Reporting Parties should also be aware that College administrators must issue immediate timely warnings for incidents reported to them that are confirmed to pose a substantial threat of bodily harm or danger to members of the campus community. For purposes of the Timely Warning requirement, the College will not disclose a Reporting Party’s name. However, the College will provide enough information for community members to make safety decisions in light of the danger. The reporters for timely warning purposes are exactly the same as detailed in the paragraph above.

II. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”)

A finding that a violation of HMC’s sexual misconduct policy has occurred will become a part of the educational record of the Responding Party, if the Responding Party is a student. The educational records of students are protected from release under a federal law, FERPA. The College complies with FERPA regulations regarding the privacy of student records and observes the following exceptions to FERPA as mandated by the Clery Act:

  1. The Responding Party(ies) in a non-consensual sexual contact/intercourse incident have the right to be informed of the finding, and sanction(s) of the investigation, in writing, without condition or limitation.
  2. The Responding Party(ies) in sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, stalking, relationship violence and any other gender-based offense have the right to be informed of the finding, in writing, and to be informed of any sanction(s) that directly relate to them, and to essential facts supporting the outcome when the outcome is “responsible” (and the underlying offense is a crime of violence as defined below and in 34 C.F.R. 99.39) and/or it is equitable to share the essential findings with all parties.

*Interim Sexual Misconduct & Complaint Resolution Policy September 2019

Responsible Employees

All faculty members, staff members, administrators, proctors, mentors, and some temporary student leaders (with the exception of those working in a confidential capacity such as counselors or chaplains) are obligated to report any disclosures related to the Harvey Mudd College community that involve allegations of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, intimate partner violence, and stalking.
