These web pages are intended to provide all members of the Three Rivers Campus Community with resources to help better understand what sexual misconduct is, and what can be done if you or someone you know has suffered from any of its forms.
Three Rivers Community College will not tolerate any form of sex-based discrimination or sexual misconduct, which includes, but is not limited to, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence (domestic violence, dating partner violence), stalking, and sexual assault.
Three Rivers strongly encourages the reporting of all sexual misconduct. The only way that action can be taken against an offender is through reporting.
The College shall provide those who report sexual misconduct with many supportive options, including referrals to agencies that provide medical attention, counseling, legal services, and advocacy. Furthermore, the College strictly prohibits any form of retaliation against individuals involved in a report.
Three Rivers shall take all reasonable steps to preserve the privacy of those involved in a report, though complete confidentiality cannot be guaranteed due to the College’s need to comply with relevant laws and to ensure the safety of the campus community. College employees are expected to make the limitations of reporters’ privacy clear before any details are disclosed.
For more information, please review the Board of Regents’ full policy on sexual misconduct and the Board of Regents’ Student Code of Conduct.
Because of the inherent imbalance of power and need for trust, faculty members, supervisory staff, and those with evaluative authority, the BOR has promulgated a policy regarding the relationships between employees and students. For more information, please review the Policy on Consensual Relationships.
