File a Report

All students, employees, and others on campus are strongly encouraged to report incidents, or knowledge of incidents, of sexual violence or harassment to a responsible college official as soon as possible after they occur.

The college will respond to complaints of sexual violence or harassment by taking timely action to eliminate the sexual violence or harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects.

Documentation of Title IX complaints received by the college and the college’s response to these complaints are maintained in the Title IX Coordinator’s Office. Title IX complaints are resolved within 60 days from the time the college is made aware of the complaint.

Students, employees, and others on campus may also choose to report incidents of sexual violence or harassment, including dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking, to law enforcement.

The college investigation and criminal investigation processes can occur simultaneously.

Reporting to the College

The college has a variety of reporting options available to receive Title IX complaints.

Students are encouraged to report incidents of sexual misconduct, inquiries, or concerns related to Title IX or the college’s non-discrimination policy to one of the college’s Title IX Coordinators. Title IX Coordinators are:

    • Knowledgeable and trained in college policies and procedures and relevant state and federal laws;
    • Available to advise any individual, including a Reporting Party (Complainant), a Responding Party (Respondent), or a third party, about college and community resources and reporting options;
    • Available to provide assistance to any college employee regarding how to respond appropriately to a report of Title IX-related incident.
    • Responsible for overseeing training, prevention, and education efforts and annual reviews of climate and culture.
    • Responsible for overseeing the College’s response to Title IX reports and complaints and identifying and addressing any patterns or systemic problems revealed by such reports and complaints.

Any individual can make a report to the above individuals or law enforcement agencies. The report may be made in person, by telephone, in writing, by e-mail, electronically, or anonymously. Any report involving a minor will be shared with external child protective service (North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services) and law enforcement.

Upon receiving a complaint, the Title IX Coordinator, or his/her designee, shall fully investigate the facts alleged in the complaint.  Typically the investigative process takes approximately 60 days; in certain circumstances, such as semester breaks, extensions of that time may occur.  If an extension of time is necessary, parties will be notified in writing, and the reason for the delay will be documented.

Responsible Employees - Private

Please know that the entire college community is here to support you!

However, you need to know the classification of the individual with whom you share information so that they can provide you with the appropriate help.

Privacy and confidentiality have distinct meanings under this policy.

Privacy generally means information will be shared only as needed to provide support for the person or people involved, to ensure the safety of the college community, and to maintain legal compliance.

Confidentiality generally means information will not be shared with others.  However, exceptions apply when there is a present danger to an individual or the college community.

College employees that serve as ‘responsible employees’ are responsible for maintaining confidentiality by sharing information with a specific circle of people therefore, limiting knowledge of the situation as much as possible, to preserve privacy and ensure safety.

These “Responsible Employees” include all employees of the college as follows:

  • Full-time, part-time, and adjunct faculty
  • Full-time and part-time staff
  • Contract employees
  • Student employees
  • Volunteers working under the authority of the college

Administrators:

  • Vice Presidents
  • Associate Vice Presidents
  • Campus Deans
  • Faculty Division Chairs
  • Faculty Department Chairs
  • Faculty Program Chairs

Student Affairs:

  • Student Success Center
    • Student Success Specialists
    • Career Services
    • International Student Services
    • Orientation Leaders
  • Chief Disciplinary Officer

Athletic Department:

  • Athletic Director
  • Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Trainers

These “Responsible Employees” are required to share information with the college’s Title IX Compliance Coordinator. There are many options for resolution of a report. The college encourages the reporting of an incident even if the reporting party is not seeking disciplinary action against the responding party and will make every effort to respect the reporting party’s autonomy in determining how to proceed. Support and resources are always available to a reporting party regardless of the chosen course of action.

Confidential Resources

Confidentiality means information shared by a person with designated campus or community professionals cannot be revealed to any other entity without the express permission of that person, unless required by law.

The law defines counselors, medical providers, and clergy as confidential. The law also allows GTCC to designate additional personnel who may maintain the confidentiality of a victim’s report internally to the college, but those individuals cannot provide the same level of legal privilege externally that may be afforded by the law to information held by counselors, medical providers, and clergy.

These individuals are prohibited from breaking confidentiality unless there is an imminent threat of harm to self or others, or if a report involves suspected abuse of a minor under the age of 18. Confidential entities, like many other professions, including employees in higher education, are required by state law to notify Child Protective Services or local law enforcement in cases of suspected child abuse.
