Information for the Accused
The college will conduct impartial and thorough investigations of allegations of potential Title IX and Discriminatory Harassment and Sexual Misconduct (DHSM) policy violations, and will objectively adjudicate disciplinary proceedings. A report may be made with the Portland Police Bureau by the complainant or by the college if the alleged violation of the DHSM may also be criminal behavior.
This Options and Resources for Student Respondents handbook is intended to provide information to students accused of Title IX violations, including those who are respondents in Title IX cases.
Julie Maxfield, Associate Dean of Students for Academic Life and David Gruber, Director of Office of Academic Support, provide information and academic support to those accused of violations. Students may also receive emotional support from health & counseling services.
