Northland College expects that all members of the College community—students, faculty, staff, and friends—to be able to pursue their work and education in a safe environment, free from sexual coercion, violence, or intimidation. The College is committed to fostering a safe campus environment where sexual misconduct and violence are unacceptable, and where survivors who believe they were harmed by another person are provided support and avenues of remedy as appropriate. This commitment applies to admissions, employment, and student access to and participation in College programs and activities.
If you believe you have experienced sexual misconduct there are multiple options for reporting and receiving support.
- Any Northland College student, faculty, staff, or visitor can report possible sexual misconduct here.
- A formal or informal complaint can be made directly to the Title IX coordinator or deputy coordinator(s).
- Incidents can also be reported to any trusted faculty or staff member, including residential advisors, who will respond appropriately to sexual harassment allegations that are brought to their attention. All faculty, staff, and residential advisors are mandatory reporters and must report the identifying information and details disclosed to them to the Title IX coordinator.
Upon receipt of the above, a prompt review of the complaint will be initiated.
Reporting to Title IX or any employee of the College enables the Title IX team to respond and offer you support and interim measures such as no contact orders, changes in your housing and course schedules, counseling, and other adjustments as reasonably available. These measures are available whether or not you decide to go forward with a formal complaint. The alleged responsible party does not need to be identified, nor does a complaint need to be filed, to receive interim measures and support. For more, see our Sexual and Gender-based Misconduct Policy and the Sexual and Gender-based Misconduct Grievance Process.
