Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I report a sexual assault or sexual harassment?

  • Ithaca College follows directives from the Office of Civil Rights to review and investigate Title IX allegations.
  • Once the College is aware of any instance involving sexual assault, harassment, or gender/sex based discrimination, it must investigate the incident to understand the impact on the individual and campus community, provide support and resources, and take appropriate steps to remedy the situation.
  • Information regarding the incident will be shared with a Title IX Investigator who will reach out to the victim/survivor to discuss the incident, offer resources, and further discuss the process.
  • Once the Title IX investigator is notified of an alleged incident of sexual assault, discrimination or harassment, it must be investigated even if the victim/survivor does not want to provide further information or participate in the investigation.
