Any Utica College community member who has been the victim of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct has the right to make a report to the College, local law enforcement, and/or the state police, or choose not to report. If reported to the College under this policy, a reporting individual will be protected from retaliation and will receive appropriate assistance and resources from Utica College. Please see the Students’ Bill of Rights for cases involving sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking.

Confidential Resources

All members of the Utica College community have a number of resources available to discuss sexual harassment or sexual misconduct concerns or questions. Individuals who have experienced sexual harassment or sexual misconduct are encouraged to seek support for their physical and emotional needs.

A student seeking confidential emotional or medical care may contact the following:

  • Utica College Student Counseling Center
    Student Wellness Center, Room 204 Strebel Student Center
    (315) 792-3094

  • Utica College Student Health Center
    Student Wellness Center, Room 204 Strebel Student Center
    (315) 792-3094

  • Safe Trax Coordinator*

    *Note – this confidential source is responsible for reporting non-identifiable statistics as required by the Clery Act

  • Oneida County's YWCA Domestic and Sexual Violence Services*
    *Note – this confidential source is responsible for reporting non-identifiable statistics as required by the Clery Act
    Campus Advocate (Office Hours on Campus): (315) 732-2159 ext. 312
    24-Hour Hotline: (315) 797-7740

The health and counseling services noted above are available to Utica College students free of charge.

An employee seeking confidential emotional support may contact the College’s employee assistance program, ENI, at 1-800-EAP-CALL (1-800-327-2255).

These resources afford students and employees the opportunity to discuss a concern or situation and the available options. These resources also offer the opportunity to gain information about the College’s formal complaint procedures under this policy. Reports made to these resources will not be reported to other College officials in any personally identifiable manner (reports made to some of these individuals may result in a report to College officials that an incident occurred, but will not result in the reporting of any personally identifiable information), and, as a result, any individual making a report solely to such confidential resources should not expect action to be taken by the College against any alleged perpetrator. Similarly, if a victim discloses actions constituting a violation of this policy through public awareness events, such as “Take Back the Night” or other event or forum, Utica College is not obligated to begin an investigation. Utica College may, however, use the information to inform the need for additional education and prevention efforts.

Confidential reports of any form of sexual misconduct can also be made to off-campus resources, including:

  • Oneida County’s YWCA Domestic and Sexual Violence Services*

In addition to the resources listed above, Utica College shares a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Mohawk Valley Health System, located in Utica, NY. This MOU ensures that any member of the College community who is a victim of sexual assault will have access to a sexual assault examination by a sexual assault nurse examiner or through a physician referral to a sexual assault nurse examiner.

When an individual shares information with a confidential resource (on or off campus) as a confidential communication in the course of a protected relationship, the confidential resource cannot disclose the information (including information about whether an individual has received services) to any third party without the individual's written permission or unless permitted or required consistent with ethical or legal obligations. Accordingly, a report to a confidential resource is not a report to the College and will not result in an investigation or disciplinary action.

Non-Confidential Resources: Responsible Administrators

Any person having a complaint of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct is encouraged to make a report to any one of the following non-confidential resources, who are considered "Responsible Administrators" for purposes of this policy:

  • Title IX Coordinator
    Lisa Green, Vice President for Human Resources & Personnel Development, (315) 792-3736, lcgreen@utica.edu

  • Deputy Title IX Coordinator
    David Fontaine, Director of Physical Education and Athletics, (315) 792-3050 or dsfontai@utica.edu

  • Director of Campus Safety
    Musco Millner, (315) 792-3201, mumillne@utica.edu

  • Interim Dean of Students
    Scott Nonemaker, (315) 792-3285, scnonema@utica.edu

Faculty, staff, students and contracted staff in Utica College’s ABSN programs, or any other programs that exist in other physical Utica College locations, may also make a report to the site’s assigned Success Coach. Success Coaches are also non-confidential resources who have been trained to engage the appropriate parties in order to assist others in reporting an incident.

Emergency access to the Title IX Coordinator is made available through contact with the Office of Campus Safety.

These individuals have been trained to receive and respond to allegations of violations of this policy. Complaints can be made to any of the Responsible Administrators by those who have been the victim of a violation of this policy or by a third party on a victim’s behalf. While all employees are strongly encouraged to report incidents of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, and certain other employees may be required to report them, if a complaint is made to anyone other than the Responsible Administrators, the reporting party risks the possibility that it will not come to the attention of the proper College officials and may, therefore, not be acted upon. For this purpose, faculty and staff members are not Responsible Administrators unless they are named specifically, and one should not assume that information brought to the attention of a faculty or staff member not considered to be a Responsible Administrator will be reported to the College. On the other hand, unless a report is made to a confidential resource, one cannot be assured of confidentiality.
