Title IX Complaint Procedure
Who May File a Complaint

The School is on notice if a responsible employee knew, or in the exercise of reasonable care should have known, about the sexual misconduct. The School treats all faculty and staff as responsible employees.
Where to File a Complaint
A student, employee, or third party who believes he/she/they has been discriminated against or harassed in violation of these policies and procedures may make a complaint orally or in writing to the School’s Title IX Coordinator.
The Title IX Coordinator will receive all relevant details about the alleged violation in order to determine what occurred and how to resolve the situation. This includes the names of alleged victim and alleged perpetrator (if known), and the date, time, and location of the alleged violation.
