Reporting an Incident of Sexual Misconduct
Anyone can request advice and information about possible ways to proceed and to put the college on notice. PPCC shall investigate complaints pursuant to SP 3-50b and SP 4-31a, Civil Rights Grievance and Investigation Process. PPCC can only respond to allegations of misconduct if it is aware of the misconduct. Further, PPCC can more effectively investigate the sooner the allegation is brought to its attention. Any employee, student, authorized volunteer, guest or visitor who believes that he or she has been subjected to sexual misconduct, or believes someone else who is a part of the PPCC community is being subjected to sexual misconduct, shall contact the Title IX Coordinator when the alleged victim and/or respondent is a student, employee(s), authorized volunteer, guest(s) or visitor(s). Complete the online complaint form.
It is a violation of this procedure to engage in retaliatory acts against any employee or student who reports an incident of sexual misconduct, or any employee or student who testifies, assists or participates in a proceeding, investigation or hearing relating to such allegation of sexual misconduct.

You should report these situations to the Title IX Coordinator, Carlton Brooks, Executive Director of Human Resource Services.
