MAXIENT TITLE IX INCIDENT REPORTING FORM

Report to District: Any person who believes they have experienced discrimination or harassment due to gender or sex (including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, dating or domestic violence, stalking) is strongly encouraged to contact a Title IX Coordinator or college Title IX Officer, or submit a Maxient Incident Reporting form. A Title IX Coordinator or Title IX Officer is a non-confidential resource who can provide information about an individual’s available rights, options, resources and supportive measures to resolve reports or complaints involving sex discrimination.

Criminal:  Individuals are encouraged to report potential crimes of sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, or stalking to campus police or local law enforcement, in addition to the Title IX Coordinator.  Criminal and Title IX/administrative investigations are separate and may be conducted simultaneously:

  • Irvine Valley College Police Department:  (949) 451-5200
  • Saddleback College Police Department:     (949) 582-4444 (emergency); (949) 582-4585

Confidential Reporting: Students who do not wish to disclose to the college or District Services an incident of sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking should contact student health and wellness services or off-campus rape crisis resources.  Exceptions to confidentiality may apply in circumstances where an individual poses a threat to one’s self or others. 

Duty to Report Incidents to Title IX Coordinator/Officer: In order to ensure a safe learning and working environment, all District “officials with authority” are not confidential resources and are required to report allegations of sexual harassment to the Title IX Coordinator or Title IX Officer promptly.  All supervisors and managers are considered District “officials with authority” and have a mandatory duty to report incidents of sexual harassment and discrimination, or the existence of a hostile, offensive, or intimidating work environment, and acts of retaliation.  Employees who have authority to institute corrective measures on behalf of the District are also required to report incidents of sexual harassment and sexual assault to the Title IX Coordinator/Officer.  All other employees are encouraged to report allegations to the Title IX Coordinator/Officer but are not required to do so.
