If an act of sexual misconduct has been committed against you or someone you know, especially an act of sexual violence, we strongly urge you to consider documenting the incident. Staff members will provide resources and support options to you. Additionally, they will review the options for filing a formal complaint (taking action through the Student Conduct or Human Resources process) or documenting the incident and not taking formal action.
If you do choose to report, you have a few different options. Depending upon your own goals and concerns, you may choose to take one or more of these forms of action.

Amnesty When Reporting Violent Crimes. The health and safety of every student at Ithaca College is of utmost importance. Ithaca College recognizes that students who have been drinking and/or using drugs (whether such use is voluntary or involuntary) at the time that violence, including but not limited to domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault occurs may be hesitant to report such incidents due to fear of potential consequences for their own conduct. Ithaca College strongly encourages students to report domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault to institution officials. A bystander acting in good faith or a reporting individual acting in good faith that discloses an incident of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault to Ithaca College Officials or law enforcement will not be subject to Ithaca College’s Code of Conduct action for violations of alcohol and/or drug use policies occurring at or near the time of the commission of the domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault.
