Sexual Assault/Sexual Abuse Assistance Resources

Immediate & Confidential Assistance

When a complainant requests confidentiality, they are asking that:

  • information regarding the incident not be shared with Delta College.
  • Delta College does not complete an investigation.
  • no action be taken against the respondent.

Under certain circumstances Delta College must complete an investigation and take appropriate action to stop and prevent prohibited behaviors and provide remedies to the complainant and Delta College community. For example, if the respondent is a Delta College employee we may move forward with an investigation even if the complainant requests confidentiality.

 Any person may contact the Title IX/VAWA Advocate directly or may be referred to the Title IX/VAWA Advocate by another office.

 The Title IX/VAWA Advocate assists all persons by:

  • Explaining the options of reporting

  • Assisting and accompanying the complainants in filing a report with the Department of Public Safety
  • Assisting the complainant in accessing on campus resources, including counseling and outside advocacy agencies (and accompanying the complainant to the counseling office)
