Reporting

Notice or complaints of sexual harassment and/or retaliation in violation of the Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy may be made using any of the following options:


1) File a complaint with, or give verbal notice to, the college Title IX Coordinator or an Official with Authority. Such a report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number or email address, or by mail to the office address, listed for the Title IX Coordinator or any other Official With Authority listed. The Title IX Coordinator can be found here.

2) Report sexual harassment / discrimination online here. Anonymous reports are accepted and can give rise to a need to investigate if there is a compelling threat to the health and/or safety of the College community. The College tries to provide supportive measures to all Complainants, which is impossible with an anonymous report when the name of the Complainant is not shared in the report.

A formal complaint is a document filed and signed by the Complainant or signed by the Title IX Coordinator alleging a policy violation by a Respondent and requesting that the College investigate the allegation(s).

A complaint may be filed with the Title IX Coordinator in person, by mail, or by electronic mail, by using the contact information in the section immediately above, or as described in this section. As used in this paragraph, the phrase “document filed by a Complainant” means a document or electronic submission (such as by electronic mail or through an online portal provided for this purpose by the College) that contains the Complainant’s physical or digital signature, which can include the Complainant’s name on the email, or otherwise indicates that the Complainant is the person filing the complaint.

The Title IX Coordinator will contact the Complainant regarding any notice that is submitted in a form that does not comply with these requirements to ensure that it is filed correctly.


Contacting Law Enforcement

Yavapai College (YC) encourages reports of criminal behavior be made with local law enforcement in addition to contacting the Title IX Coordinator. Law enforcement agencies can provide you with a wide range of services.

Provide access to:

  • Medical assistance
  • Protective measures
  • Victim advocate services

Additional services:

  • Respond to concerns for personal safety
  • Share personal safety strategies
  • Initiate a criminal investigation
  • Explain how to obtain an order of protection or injunction against harassment
  • Answer questions about the criminal process

A criminal investigation also affords additional rights to victims. Working with local law enforcement complements an administrative investigation. YC can only influence the employment and enrollment status of an individual. Local law enforcement can make sure that community members, visitors, students, or employees do not continue harmful behavior in the college community setting. YC will enforce any court orders and collaborate with local law enforcement during investigations. In most cases, an administrative investigation will be completed prior to a criminal investigation.

  • For emergencies or to report a crime in progress at Yavapai College, call 9-1-1
  • For off campus emergencies call 9-1-1. Always make sure you are in a safe place before contacting Public Safety or the local police
  • For non-emergency and general public safety related assistance call the Yavapai College Campus Safety office at (928) 776-2185.

YC encourages victims to work with the Title IX Coordinator and YC law enforcement to seek relief, remedies, and support.
