Flagler College Policy
Flagler College is committed to providing and maintaining programs, activities, and an educational and work environment founded on civility and respect, where no one is unlawfully excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any College program or activity on the basis of gender, sex, sexual orientation, sexual identity, gender identity, or gender expression.
Flagler College strongly encourages individuals who have been sexually assaulted to file a complaint with local law enforcement. While this is not required for the complaint process to begin at the College, the Title IX Coordinator can assist individuals in filing a complaint with law enforcement.
The Flagler College Sexual Misconduct Policy applies to all constituents on campus including students, faculty, staff, hourly employees, vendors, and visitors. A complaint may be filed by or against any of the above.
The College encourages victims of sexual misconduct to talk to someone about what happened, both so that they can get the support they need and so the College can respond appropriately.
The College will respect and will make every feasible effort to avoid inappropriate disclosure of the identities of and the information shared by the parties involved. For strict confidentiality, a victim should discuss the sexual misconduct with staff in the Flagler College Counseling Center or Flagler College Health Services.
All Vice Presidents, Deans, Department Chairs, Faculty (full- and part-time), Coaches and Assistant Coaches, Athletic Administration, Residence Life staff including Resident Advisors, employees in the Office of Student Services, Executive Directors, Directors, First Year Advisors, Security personnel, and administrative staff are responsible employees. Information shared with them will be reported to the College’s Title IX Coordinator.
Prohibition on Retaliation
Retaliation against any person for filing, supporting, or providing information in connection with an allegation of Sexual Misconduct is strictly prohibited. Any person who feels he or she has been subjected to retaliation should make a report to the College’s Title IX Coordinator.
The Flagler College Sexual Misconduct Policy can be found in its entirety in the Student Handbook.
