Title IX Coordinator Response upon Receiving a Report of Sexual Discrimination
On receiving a report, the Title IX Coordinator will, within ten (10) days of receipt:
- Contact the complainant, i.e., the alleged victim (if that person can be identified);
- Offer the complainant Supportive Measures;
- Explain the process of filing a formal complaint;
- Explain the entire Title IX process (develop a checklist/form to cover topics to discuss with complainant);
- Explain that Supportive Measures can be available with or without a formal complaint;
- Contact the respondent, who must also be offered Supportive Measures;
- Consider the complainant’s and the respondent’s wishes with regard to Supportive Measures;
- If Supportive Measures are refused by the complainant or respondent, the Title IX Coordinator must document why s/he did not provide a complainant with Supportive Measures.
Upon receipt of a formal complaint, the Title IX Coordinator will, within fifteen (15) days of receipt:
- Send written notice to both parties (complainants and respondents) of the allegations;
- Assign an Investigator to investigate the allegations.
The Title IX Coordinator may initiate the complaint process if s/he believes a non-deliberately indifferent response to the allegations requires an investigation. Note: If proceeding against the wishes of the complainant, the Title IX Coordinator should do so thoughtfully, not automatically, and written documentation of the decision to proceed or not to proceed should be generated and retained.
