Meeting with the Title IX Coordinator

1. Request Information and Resources

  • The Title IX coordinator may give you information on your rights, options, and other resources available to you. No details about the incident need to be revealed.
What Happens Next?
  • If you do not request, no further actions will take place. You are encouraged to consult with off-campus resources that can advise you on what steps to take next.

2. Disclose an Incident of Sexual Misconduct

  • You may reveal that an incident of Sexual Misconduct took place, but request that no action be taken against the offender. Action can still be taken at a later time.
What Happens Next?
  • The college will consider your request to take no action, but it may determine that doing so could be too dangerous or disruptive to the campus community.
  • If the college decides to take action, an investigation into the incident will begin, and the process will continue as if a formal report has been made.
  • If the college decides not to take action, a record of the complaint will still be kept if you should choose to proceed further. The college can offer arrangements for your safety and comfort, though none that would directly affect the offender.
  • In either case, you will always be informed before any action takes place.

3. Report an Incident of Sexual Misconduct

  • You may reveal that an incident of Sexual Misconduct took place, and request that the college take action against the offender through its disciplinary process.
What Happens Next?
  • You will be offered arrangements to ensure that you are safe from the offender, which can include changing your class and/or work schedule, suspending the offender on an interim basis, and many other options.
  • You will be assigned a victim advocate: a trained volunteer who will keep you informed and ensure that your needs are met.
  • The LACCD Title IX coordinator will gather evidence and witness testimony in order to determine if it is more likely than not the misconduct took place.
  • A Disciplinary Hearing may be held, in which sanctions for the offender will be decided. You will never be asked to confront the offender directly.
