Sexual Misconduct is a serious issue that affects college students, impeding their ability to participate fully in their studies. At Asnuntuck we are committed to having an informed campus that understands reporting responsibilities and is aware of available campus resources critical to creating a culture of caring and compassion in support of our students and community.

A Title IX coordinator’s core responsibilities include overseeing the school’s response to Title IX reports and complaints and identifying and addressing any patterns or systemic problems revealed by such reports, disclosures and complaints. This means that the Title IX coordinator must have knowledge of the requirements of Title IX, of the school’s own policies and procedures on sex discrimination, and of all complaints raising Title IX issues throughout the school.

The Title IX coordinator must be informed of all reports and complaints raising Title IX issues, even if the report or complaint was initially filed with another individual or office or if the investigation will be conducted by another individual or office.

What to Do If You or Someone You Know Has Experienced Sexual Violence at Asnuntuck– Title IX

Asnuntuck Community College is committed to fulfilling requirements under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to foster a safe learning environment by responding promptly and effectively to complaints of all kinds of sexual misconduct.

All forms of sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, domestic violence, domestic or dating/relationship violence) are violations of the college’s “Sexual Misconduct Policies.”

The College aims to prevent and respond to sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking, and sexual harassment through prevention education, collaboration, outreach, and advocacy. We are committed to taking a survivor-centered approach, which means that if a student is victimized, they are given the options and make the decisions about what services they would like to access and whether or not they would like to report the incident. Our commitment is to create a community that is safe and supportive of people of all gender and sexual identities.
