Description: This bill recommends administration to maintain and establish a time limit of sixty calendar days for the completion of sexual misconduct, harassment, and discrimination cases, with exceptions only for substantial extenuating circumstances. Such circumstances would be determined by the school and evaluated on a case to case basis; these circumstances include but are not limited to, the need to review an overwhelming amount of evidence, if more than one incident occurred between the same complainant and respondent and so on.
Outcome: In conjunction with the Title IX office, senator Jasmine Morrow, found that Ithaca College was already in compliance of the case maximum, as outlined in 2.1.5 of the Sexual Misconduct Policy Manual.
