Campus Sexual Assault Bill of Rights

If you believe you or anyone else is in immediate danger, call 911 or Campus Safety at (717) 361-1111.

What is Sexual Misconduct?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) and its implementing regulations prohibit sex discrimination in educational programs and activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance. This prohibition encompasses discrimination based on a student鈥檚 gender identity, including discrimination based on a student鈥檚 transgender status.

十分六合彩 is committed to providing a learning, working, and living environment that promotes personal integrity, civility, and mutual respect in an environment free of sex discrimination and sexual misconduct.

Sex discrimination violates an individual's fundamental rights and personal dignity. Sex discrimination includes all forms of sexual and gender-based harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual violence, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking by students, employees or third parties against employees, students, or third parties.

十分六合彩 takes violations of Title IX policy seriously and will investigate allegations of Title IX violations to the fullest extent possible. Any person found in violation of the policy will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination if they are an employee, and/or expulsion if they are a student.

Prohibited Behaviors:

十分六合彩 (henceforth 鈥淭he College鈥) prohibits all Sexual Misconduct Violations as defined in the Policy. This prohibited conduct can affect all genders, gender identities and sexual orientations. Some of these prohibited forms of conduct may also be crimes under Pennsylvania or federal law. The College will promptly and equitably respond to all reports of sexual misconduct to eliminate the misconduct, prevent its recurrence, and redress its effects on any individual or the community.

Prohibited behaviors include the following:

  • Dating Violence (Regulatory and Non-Regulatory)
  • Domestic Violence (Regulatory and Non-Regulatory)
  • Retaliation
  • Sexual Assault (Regulatory and Non-Regulatory)
  • Sexual Exploitation
  • Sexual Harassment - Quid Pro Quo and Hostile Environment (Regulatory and Non-Regulatory)
  • Stalking (Regulatory and Non-Regulatory)

Reporting an Incident

Reporting to the College:

十分六合彩 strongly encourages anyone who has information about a potential violation of this Policy to provide a Report to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator. A Report is defined as a disclosure and does not constitute a Formal Complaint. The procedure for filing a Formal Complaint is described in the Policy.鈥疉ny person may provide a Report of a potential violation to the Title IX Coordinator in person, by mail, by telephone or by electronic mail. Reports by mail, telephone or electronic mail may be made at any time, including outside of regular business hours.

A person may also file an anonymous report, which will be routed directly to the Title IX Coordinator. Anonymous reports may be submitted using the Public Incident Report form.

Reporting to Law Enforcement:

A victim of a crime is encouraged to, but not required to, report the incident to local law enforcement. The criminal process and the College's disciplinary process are mutually exclusive, and are not dependent upon one another. A person can pursue both, neither, or either. Victims have the option of notifying local law enforcement directly or receiving assistance from the College in doing so. If an individual requires assistance making contact with local law enforcement and scheduling a meeting time with a Police Officer or Detective, please contact Gerald Kelley, Director of Campus Safety, or ask for the supervisor on duty. Call (717) 361-1264 or visit the Campus Safety Office at 605 S. Mt. Joy Street.

To make a direct report to local law enforcement without assistance from the College, individuals should contact 911 or Lancaster County Wide Communications鈥痑t (717) 367-1835. The dispatcher will ask for preliminary information, such as the name of the reporting person, phone number, address, and whether immediate assistance is needed.

  • Elizabethtown Police Department鈥- Dial 911
  • Campus Safety 鈥 (717) 361-1111 (24-Hour 鈥疎mergency Hotline)

In cases of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking, complainants are encouraged to preserve physical evidence that may assist in proving the alleged criminal offense occurred or that may be helpful in obtaining a protection order. The decision to make a formal complaint or criminal report does not have to be made at this time. However, following these procedures will help preserve this option for the future.

To properly preserve evidence, ensure the incident area is not disturbed. The individual should not bathe, urinate, douche, brush teeth, or drink liquids. Clothes should not be changed. If clothes have been removed, place the original clothing in a paper bag. (Plastic bags may damage evidence.) For crimes of stalking, the individual should preserve all instances of unwanted communications (texts, emails, social media posts) and keep a log of unwanted phone calls. For crimes of dating violence or domestic violence, pictures of injuries should be taken.

If you have been assaulted, you are encouraged to seek immediate medical attention at an area hospital and take a full change of clothing, including shoes, for use after a medical examination. It is recommended that a physical exam be conducted within 72 hours of the assault. Participating in a sexual assault forensic exam does not require the individual to press charges. This action keeps the option open. (Individuals under the age of eighteen should be aware that, as a minor, their parent(s) or legal guardian may have the right to obtain information from their medical records.) Lancaster General Hospital and Penn State Hershey Medical Center provide a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE). The hospital staff can assist with treatment for sexually transmitted diseases and other health services.

Confidentiality, Retaliation and Non-Discrimination Policies

Privacy & Confidentiality

十分六合彩 is committed to protecting the privacy of all individuals involved in a report of sexual misconduct. Every effort will be made to protect the privacy interests of all individuals involved. Privacy, confidentiality and privilege have distinct meanings under this Policy.

Privacy generally means that information related to a report of sexual misconduct will only be shared with a limited circle of individuals, including individuals who 鈥渘eed to know鈥 to assist in the review, investigation, or resolution of the report or to deliver resources or support services. While not bound by confidentiality or privilege, these individuals will be discreet and respect the privacy of all individuals involved in the process. All participants in an investigation of sexual misconduct under this Policy, including Advisors and Witnesses, will be informed that privacy helps enhance the integrity of the investigation and protect the privacy interests of the parties, however, nothing in this Policy is intended to impose restraints on a Party鈥檚 ability to discuss the allegations under investigation or to gather and present evidence as part of the resolution process.

Certain individuals are designated as having confidentiality. For reports made to employees designated with confidentiality, the College will respect the reporting party's expectations of privacy to the extent permissible by law while still ensuring compliance with other reporting obligations. For example, reports involving minors are subject to mandatory reporting requirements. Individuals designated as having confidentiality are required to report the nature, date, time and general location of an incident to the Title IX coordinator. Individuals designated as having confidentiality will not share other information with the Title IX Coordinator or any other employee of the Institution without the permission of the disclosing party. Individuals designated as having confidentiality can provide information about the College and off-campus resources, support services and other options. As noted above, because of the confidential nature of these resources, disclosing information to or seeking advice from a confidential resource does not constitute a report or Formal Complaint to the College and will not result in a response or intervention by the College. A person consulting with a confidential resource may decide to make a report to the College and/or law enforcement. Confidential Resources are outlined in this Policy, and in the Written Notification of Resources provided to all Reporting Parties.

Communication with certain individuals may be privileged by operation of law and reports made to these individuals will not be shared with the Title IX Coordinator or law enforcement except in very limited situations, such as when failure to disclose the information would result in imminent danger to the individual or to others or as otherwise required by law. All College proceedings are conducted in compliance with the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Clery Act, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX), Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), state and local law, and College policy. No information will be released from such proceedings, except as required or permitted by law and College policy. The College may share non-identifying information about reports received in aggregate form, including data about outcomes and Disciplinary Sanctions.

Retaliation

Neither the College nor any other person may retaliate against an individual who has participated or refused to participate in any matter addressed under this Policy.

Retaliation includes any action to intimidate, threaten, coerce, or discriminate against an individual (a) for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured by Title IX or its implementing听 regulations; or (b) because the individual has made a Report or Formal Complaint, testified, assisted, or participated or refused to participate in any manner in any investigation, proceeding, or hearing under this Policy.听Retaliation is also prohibited against individuals involved in matters that do not arise under this policy but arise out of the same facts or circumstances as a Report or Formal Complaint of sex discrimination or sexual harassment. Retaliation is a violation of College Policy. Any allegations of retaliation related to a Report or Formal Complaint Process will be referred to the appropriate process of resolution, even if such process runs concurrently with a Formal Complaint Process under Title IX. The outcome of any proceedings called to resolve retaliation in relationship to a Report or Formal Complaint Process must be reported back to the Title IX Coordinator.

Statement of Non-Discrimination

十分六合彩 does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, genetic information, possession of a general education development certificate as compared to a high school diploma, or any other legally protected status. This commitment applies but is not limited to decisions made with respect to hiring and promotion, the administration of educational programs and policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other College administered programs. Discriminatory acts of any kind are strictly forbidden. Inquiries regarding non-discrimination policies may be directed to:
