How to Report
All contact information is located in the Resource Brochure.
To report an incident of sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, or stalking, you may file a report with any of the individuals below. These options are non-confidential. Any information you provide may be used firstly to offer you resources and assistance, and/or secondly as part of an official investigation by the College. You may be contacted by a Title IX investigator to discuss your experience, as the College works to redress the matter and prevent such incidents in the future. You are not obligated to file a report and may decline to notify any of these authorities.
- If you are a student: you can report to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Students.
- If you are an associate: you can report to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Associates.
- Anyone – student or associate – can report to the Title IX Coordinator.
- If the incident involves criminal activity: you can report to local law enforcement. The Title IX Coordinators and/or the College Public Safety Department can assist you with contacting local law enforcement, upon request.
- You can DECLINE to notify any such authorities.
You may request anonymity or request that the College not investigate the information that you have shared. The Title IX Coordinator may not be able to honor this request, however, if doing so is likely to put other members of the College community at risk. The Title IX Coordinator, Deputy Title IX Coordinator, or their designee will discuss this with you. In any event, you can be assured that any investigation will be discreet and only disclosed on a need to know basis.
For confidential assistance, students may speak with a personal counselor located at each campus. Personal counselors are the only Berkeley College associates who are not legally required to inform the Title IX Coordinator about these serious matters. Associates may contact the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
Reporting Obligations – What You Should Know
Except for personal counselors, College faculty and staff are non-confidential and are obligated to report any information regarding an incident of sexual misconduct, intimate partner violence, or stalking to the appropriate Deputy Title IX Coordinator.
