Reporting of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault
Any student, or other member of the college community, who believes that he/she is or has been a victim of sexual harassment or sexual assault may file a report with the college’s Chief Student Services Officer, campus security office, or with the college’s Title IX coordinator. The designated coordinator will work with the complaining student to mitigate any injury during the pendency of the investigation and proceedings. Aiken Technical College, through its designated coordinator, will change a victim’s academic situation after an alleged sex offense and discuss the options for those changes, if those changes are requested by the victim and are reasonably available. The Title IX coordinator’s office is located in the Enrollment Services Center, Room 166. Aiken Technical College’s Title IX coordinator is Dr. Vinson Burdette, Dean of Enrollment Services, and he can be reached at burdettv@atc.edu or by phone at 803-508-7244.
Reports may also be filed by any other member of the college community. The student may also file a criminal report regarding the alleged conduct.
All employees are responsible for helping to eliminate discrimination and/or harassment. If any employee believes that he/she experienced or witnessed discrimination and/or harassment, the employee should immediately notify his/her supervisor, a human resource representative, or any other official. Pursuant to the policy of the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education, any employee who believes that he/she is the victim of discrimination and/or harassment shall have the right to seek an investigation or to file a complaint in accordance with Policy Number 8-6-100.
Aiken Technical College will, upon written request, disclose to the alleged victim of a crime or violence (as that term is defined in Section 16 of Title 18, United States Code), or a non-forcible sex offense, the report on the results of any disciplinary proceeding conducted by ATC against a student who is the alleged perpetrator of such crime or offense.
