The Grievance Procedure

The information on these pages is updated frequently. However, please refer to Randolph College’s Sexual Misconduct Policy to ensure the most up to date information. You can access the most recent version by clicking the “Policies” tab.

Complaints of sexual misconduct may be resolved through the informal process or through a formal hearing procedure, described below. Having attempted resolution through the informal process does not preclude the Complainant’s use of the formal hearing procedure if he or she is not satisfied with the efforts to resolve the complaint through the informal process. In addition, a Complainant may choose to utilize the formal procedure without having attempted resolution through the informal process.

Complaints may be made against an individual by the Complainant, by another College community member, or by the College for the purpose of fulfilling its duty to maintain appropriate vigilance against conduct that constitutes sexual misconduct. This grievance procedure must not be used to bring malicious or knowingly false complaints. The sexual misconduct grievance procedure will be used when any person is alleged to have filed a knowingly false complaint or who knowingly provides false information to College officials. If a claim is not substantiated, the College may, with the agreement of the Respondent, take steps to restore the reputation of the accused individual, including expunging records or notification to persons who participated in the grievance proceeding(s).

The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for determining and documenting whether reasonable grounds exist to believe that the conduct at issue constitutes sexual misconduct under this policy. The Title IX Coordinator will direct that the case will proceed unless it is clear from the complaint and/or the initial meetings with the parties and/or the investigation that no reasonable grounds exist for believing that the conduct at issue constitutes sexual misconduct under this policy. If at any point during the complaint, investigative or disciplinary processes, the Title IX Coordinator or designated representatives reasonably believe that a Respondent who is a member of the College community poses a substantial threat of harm to the Complainant or other members of the campus community; threatens or endangers College property; or disrupts the stability and continuance of normal College operations and functions, the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator, in conjunction with the appropriate College administrators, may take actions to minimize or eliminate the threat including , but not limited to, issuing a no-contact order, referring the respondent to counseling, or interim suspension.
