Additional information available on the SCC additional resources page.
SCC has established a confidential/anonymous reporting site – TIPS– for students, employees and visitors to report
suspicious or unusual behavior, or other incidents, that occur on any College-owned or College-operated facility or
at any College sponsored event or activity, either on or off campus. Confidential reports can be submitted by
filing a CCR report.
All SCC faculty and staff who have not otherwise been designated as confidential reporting resources (defined below)
are “responsible employees.” Title IX requires that when a responsible employee learns of sex* discrimination, including sexual or relationship violence, that
individual is required to promptly advise the Title IX Administrator, Campus Administration or other appropriate
designees. Because of this, please note that, although SCC takes survivor confidentiality very seriously,
confidentiality cannot be guaranteed when informing SCC employees who have not otherwise been
designated as confidential reporting resources of incidents of sexual or relationship violence.
Agency Contact Information
Whenever SCC’s Title IX Administrator or other responsible employee receives a report that a student or employee has
been subjected to sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, or intimate partner
violence), the College’s Title IX Administrator, or other responsible employee, shall immediately provide the
alleged victim with contact information for and, if requested, professional assistance in accessing and using
campus, local advocacy, counseling, health, and mental health services. The following list of services, including
contact information, is provided for this purpose:
