    SCC’s Commitment to Addressing Sexual Misconduct

    Southeast Community College is dedicated to creating and maintaining a welcoming, safe, healthy educational environment for its faculty and students. In order to be proactive, SCC has established policies and procedures to investigate complaints and address identified concerns.

    If you or someone you have known has experienced sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, harassment, discrimination, or stalking, this is how to respond:

    • Support: Support is available via campus and off-campus resources.
    • Report: SCC encourages any person subject to sexual misconduct to report the conduct to law enforcement and to the College’s Title IX Coordinator:
      • Report a Crime: If there is a crime in progress or you need immediate medical care or safety measures, call 911. For non-emergencies, contact SCC Campus Safety & Security.
      • Anonymous Reporting: You may choose to file a report with SCC and request that your name not be used in the investigation process. However, it is often difficult to investigate allegations when an individual requests their name not be disclosed during an investigation. Reporting anonymously may limit the College’s ability to conduct a full investigation and take action. You may report anonymously through the TIPS system.
      • File a Complaint Using TIPS: You may share a concern or file a complaint using TIPS.
      • Contact a Responsible Employee: Responsible employees are all employees working for SCC. Employees have an obligation to report allegations of sex discrimination or sexual misconduct. Responsible employees cannot keep your concerns confidential. If you take to these individuals, your concerns will be reported to the Title IX Coordinator for an investigation into your concerns.
      • File a Title IX Complaint with the College: SCC’s Title IX Coordinator is Blake Simpson. He may be reached at:
        Blake K. Simpson, J.D.
