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.

How Reports Are Resolved

All reports of sexual misconduct involving students are resolved through the process described in The Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct. The Office of Student Development and Services, in conjunction with the Title IX Coordinator, is responsible for the resolution of these claims.
The outcome may depend on many factors, especially your own preferences. This page will help you to understand your options and the steps involved in the process.

If you are an employee, please contact Louise Summa, the Director of Human Resources, or your union representative for more information on the resolution options available.
