Sexual Misconduct Policy

Cambridge College (“CC” or “the College”) is committed to establishing and maintaining an educational and employment environment that is free from sexual misconduct.  Sexual misconduct, as defined below, is a violation of a person’s rights, dignity, and integrity, and is contrary to the mission and values of the College.  Acts of sexual misconduct are strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated.   

The College has tharee policies that address sexual misconduct: the Cambridge College Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy, the Cambridge College Sexual Misconduct Policy (i.e., this policy), and the Non-Discrimination and Harassment Policy for Employees and Students.   The Cambridge College Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy is a limited policy that only applies to reports and formal complaints of sexual harassment, as defined by Title IX, asserted against a CC student or employee when the other jurisdictional requirements of Title IX are satisfied and the Title IX Coordinator determines that the alleged conduct requires a formal Title IX investigation.  The Cambridge College Sexual Misconduct Policy is a broader policy that applies to all reports and complaints of sexual misconduct asserted against a CC student or employee that fall outside the jurisdiction of the Cambridge College Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy. The Non-Discrimination and Harassment Policy for Employees governs the grievance process for all reports and complaints of sexual misconduct asserted against a CC employee that do not involve sexual harassment, as defined by Title IX, and which the Title IX Coordinator determines do not require a formal Title IX investigation.        

The College takes all allegations of sexual misconduct seriously and is committed to providing information, education, resources, support, interim measures, and direction to the College community to prevent and address sexual misconduct.  In response to any report that a member of the CC community has engaged in sexual misconduct, the College will take all appropriate steps to eliminate the misconduct, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects.  To achieve equitable results, the College will carefully review and/or investigate all reports and complaints of sexual misconduct with an earnest intent to understand the perspective and experiences of each individual involved, and to provide for fair and impartial evaluation and resolution.
