Filing an Anonymous Report
This form is used when a reporting person requests that his/her name or other identifiable information not be shared with the accused or that no formal action be taken, the College will balance this request with its dual obligation to provide a safe and non‐discriminatory environment for all College community members and to remain true to principles of fundamental fairness that require notice and an opportunity to respond before action is taken against an accused person.
Request for Confidentiality: Where a reporting person requests that his/her name or other identifiable information not be shared with the accused or that no formal action be taken, the College will balance this request with its dual obligation to provide a safe and non‐discriminatory environment for all College community members and to remain true to principles of fundamental fairness that require notice and an opportunity to respond before action is taken against a Respondent or individual(s). In making this determination, the College may consider the seriousness of the conduct, the respective ages and roles of the Complainant and Respondent / person(s), whether there have been other complaints or reports of harassment or misconduct against the Respondent / person(s), and the rights of the Respondent person(s) to receive notice and relevant information before disciplinary action is sought.

The College will take all reasonable steps to investigate and respond to the complaint consistent with the request for confidentiality or request not to pursue an investigation, but its ability to do so may be limited based on the nature of the request by the Complainant. Where the College is unable to take action consistent with the request of the Complainant, the Campus Safety Director, Title IX Coordinator or a member of the Title IX team will inform the Complainant about the chosen course of action, which may include the College seeking disciplinary action against a Respondent or / person(s). Alternatively, the course of action may also include steps to limit the effects of the alleged harassment or incident (s) and prevent its recurrence that do not involve formal disciplinary action against a Respondent / person(s) or revealing the identity of the Complainant.
Campus Security Authorities (CSA's) may use this confidential reporting form. The Campus Security Authority (CSA) is to document as much of the requested information on the form regarding the incident and involved parties. CSA reports should include personally identifying information if available. This is important for law enforcement purposes and to avoid double counting crimes. If a victim doesn’t want the report to go any further than the CSA, the CSA should explain that he or she is required to submit the report for statistical purposes, but it can be submitted without identifying the victim.
