SMC has designated the Title IX Coordinator to oversee complaints of sexual misconduct at the College. An individual who has experienced sexual assault/misconduct has the right to choose whether to report the incident to SMC's Director of HR, Title IX Coordinator, Title IX Deputy, or responsible SMC employee. At SMC the following types of employees are considered to be "responsible employees" who have responsibility for reporting allegations of sexual misconduct to the District's Compliance Administrator/Title IX Coordinator:

  • Academic Administrators (including project managers)

  • Classified Managers

  • Department Chairs

Please call or email one of SMC Title IX Deputies to set up a meeting if you have a complaint involving sexual misconduct. You can also call for general information.

Please Note: the Director of HR, Title IX Coordinator and Title IX Deputies are not a confidential source of support. While they will address your complaint with sensitivity and will keep your information as private as possible, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed.

Once reported an investigator will contact you. They are specially trained to work with individuals who report sexual misconduct and have knowledge about on and off-campus resources, services, and options – including the availability of interim protective measures and accommodations.
