Title IX and Sexual Misconduct
The safety of our students, staff, faculty, and visitors is our highest priority. Centralia College offers the campus community professional staff, resources, training, and policies that help ensure a safe environment on and off campus.
Have you experienced a sexual misconduct or gender-based incident?
Centralia College staff's first concern is to provide immediate support to ensure your safety and well-being.
Follow these steps if you believe you may have been involved in a sexual misconduct or sex-or gender-based incident:
- Call 911 in the case of emergency.
- Report the incident to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator
- Review Support and Reporting Options
- Learn about Bystander Intervention
- What is Consent?
Making a Report
When making a report please be aware of confidentiality:
College employees, except those statutorily barred from doing so, have a duty to immediately report possible Title IX violations to the Title IX Coordinator.
If you have confidentiality concerns, ask the Title IX Coordinator if you can speak with someone who can maintain confidentiality. If you would like to consult with someone outside the campus who can maintain confidentiality, contact HOPE Alliance 1-800-460-7233.
