Anne Arundel Community College is committed to providing programs, activities and an educational environment in which all individuals are valued, respected and secure. All members of the college community share in the responsibility to create and maintain a safe learning environment.

As part of this responsibility, the college developed a policy prohibiting all forms of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and sex discrimination. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Non-consensual sexual acts.
  • Dating violence.
  • Domestic violence.
  • Stalking.

Retaliation for reporting any such conduct is expressly prohibited.

The policy also provides procedures for reporting sexual harassment and misconduct, as well as a path towards a timely and  equitable resolution while protecting the rights of those involved.

The policy applies to AACC students, faculty, administrators, staff, volunteers, vendors and others conducting business on behalf of the college, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. It covers all prohibited actions occurring on college owned, leased or operated premises; at college-sponsored activities (including AACC-sanctioned attendance of foreign study programs); and while doing business on behalf of the college.

Review the Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct Policy


File a Report

It’s our goal to create a supportive climate that encourages victims/survivors of sexual misconduct to report the incident(s).

College Employees

College employees who have been or are being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sex discrimination, or who are aware of another who has been or is being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sex discrimination should notify the college Federal Compliance Officer immediately so appropriate action can be taken. 

Students

Students who have been or are being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sex discrimination, or who are aware of another who has been or is being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sex discrimination are strongly encouraged to notify the college Federal Compliance Officer, Department of Public Safety and Police, other appropriate college authorities or local law enforcement.

Reporting Options

Reports may be made in person, by telephone, by e-mail, online, or anonymously to the individuals or departments to the right.  All reports except those to a Confidential Resource may be shared with College officials with a legitimate need to know.



File a Complaint

Filing a complaint is different from filing a report for information or support (the process outlined above). A complaint initiates a formal investigation, possible disciplinary actions and seeks specific relief. All complaints of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct by a student, employee or volunteer of the college should be submitted in writing and submitted to Title IX Federal Compliance Officer or designee.  For more information, please review the Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Procedures.


Find Support

If you need support, there are trained professionals on and off campus who provide counseling, information and help filing a report. These confidential resources will not share your information without your express permission, unless there is a continuing threat of serious harm or a legal obligation (such as the suspected abuse or neglect of a minor). When seeking support, if you're concerned about confidentiality, you should share your concerns with your counselor.
