VI. Jurisdiction & Reporting Time Frames

(Back to Sexual Misconduct Protocol Table of Contents)

Because sexual misconduct that occurs off-campus is likely to impact a person’s work, academic or extracurricular experience, the District assumes jurisdiction to adjudicate off-campus complaints should they become known. In addition, the District encourages prompt reporting of all allegations of sexual misconduct so that the District can respond promptly and equitably; however, the District does not limit the time frame for reporting. If the accused person is no longer affiliated with the District at the time the report is made, then the District will still conduct an inquiry for purposes of complying with Title IX, and take steps to prevent the recurrence of such conduct and remedy the effects, if appropriate.
