Filing a Sexual Misconduct Complaint (Title IX)

Title IX requires Paul Quinn College to respond to harassment on the basis of sex, which includes sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, and stalking.

 

The College must:

  • Investigate what happened,
  • Take appropriate steps to resolve the matter,
  • Do its best to eliminate the harassment and prevent recurrence,
  • Remedy effects, even if no formal complaint has been made,
  • Take interim measures during the investigation to prevent potential further harassment.
