(coming soon)

Individuals who feel subjected to sexual harassment should report the circumstances orally and/or in writing as soon as possible to the Title IX Coordinator. If the conduct occurs outside of business hours, a complaint can be filed with the Office of Campus Safety.  A delay in reporting may affect an investigator’s ability to gather information relevant to the case.

The investigator(s) assigned to investigate an allegation of sexual harassment will maintain confidentiality in her/his investigation. However, those who wish to remain anonymous should know that it may be difficult to take action, in some cases, due to lack of detailed information.

Retaliation against anyone involved in either investigating or reporting a complaint of sexual harassment is not tolerated at Utica College.  Any individual pursuing a complaint may do so without fear of reprisal.  Retaliation in any form will be subject to action through the conduct process or employee disciplinary process.
