Title IX Sexual Harassment ...
Jurisdiction of Gallaudet University and the Clerc Center
College Hall B18
This policy applies to the education program and activities of the the Institution, to conduct that takes place on the campus or on property owned or controlled by Gallaudet University, and at Institution -sponsored events. The Respondent must be a member of Gallaudet or the Clerc Center community in order for its policies to apply.
This policy can also be applicable to the effects of off-campus misconduct that effectively deprive someone of access to Gallaudet or the Clerc Center’s educational program. The Institution may also extend jurisdiction to off-campus and/or to online conduct when the Title IX Coordinator determines that the conduct affects a substantial Gallaudet or the Clerc Center interest.
Regardless of where the conduct occurred, the Institution will address notice/complaints to determine whether the conduct occurred in the context of its employment or educational program or activity and/or has continuing effects on campus or in an off-campus sponsored program or activity. A substantial Gallaudet or the Clerc Center interest includes:
If the Respondent is unknown or is not a member of the Gallaudet or the Clerc Center community, the Title IX Coordinator will assist the Complainant in identifying appropriate campus and local resources and support options and/or, when criminal conduct is alleged, in contacting local or campus law enforcement if the individual would like to file a police report.
Further, even when the Respondent is not a member of Gallaudet or the Clerc Center’s community, supportive measures, remedies, and resources may be accessible to the Complainant by contacting the Title IX Coordinator.
In addition, the Institution may take other actions as appropriate to protect the Complainant against third parties, such as barring individuals from Gallaudet and/or the Clerc Center property and/or events.
When the Respondent is enrolled in or employed by another institution, the Title IX Coordinator can assist the Complainant in liaising with the appropriate individual at that institution, as it may be possible to allege violations through that institution’s policies.
Similarly, the Title IX Coordinator may be able to assist and support a student or employee Complainant who experiences sexual harassment or retaliation in an externship, study abroad program, or other environment external to the Institution where sexual harassment policies and procedures of the facilitating or host organization may give recourse to the Complainant.
