    Student Code of Conduct Special Provisions for Sexual Misconduct and Other Sensitive Issues 
     


    • Advisor/Advocate: All student parties to sexual misconduct complaints have the right to an advisor/advocate from the community to assist and support in connection with grievance proceedings. Coastal Bend College does not disallow any advisor, but does prohibit any advisor from speaking during any meeting or grievance procedure.
    • Sexual History/Character: All parties to a complaint have a right not to face questions or discussion of their sexual history or character unless the administrative officer decides that such information is highly relevant to determining whether the policy has been violated.
    • Right to Know Outcome and Sanctions: The complainant and the accused party both have the right to know the outcome and sanctions.
    • Right to Be Informed of Complainant's and Respondent's Review (Appeal) Status: The parties will be informed by the Title IX Coordinator or her designee if any of the parties to the complaint requests an appeal.
    • Right to Appeal: A complainant or respondent has the right to appeal. A student shall be informed of his/her right to file a complaint with the United States Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights.

    Right to be Informed of Policy: Information regarding this protocol and any accompanying procedures shall be distributed annually to College District employees and students in a manner calculated to provide easy access and wide distribution, such as through electronic distribution and inclusion in major College District publications. Information regarding the policy and procedures shall also be prominently published on the College District's website. Copies of the policy and procedures shall be readily available at the College District's administrative offices.
    • Right Not to be Dissuaded from Participating in Law Enforcement Processes: Coastal Bend College encourages any victim of a crime, especially sexual assault, stalking, domestic or dating violence, to file a report with the appropriate law enforcement department. A complainant has the right to file said report before they alert Coastal Bend College of the allegation of sexual misconduct or after they have participated in an on campus administrative process. Coastal Bend College would never dissuade a victim from seeking remedies from the criminal justice system. The Title IX Coordinator or Title IX Investigator can assist any victim with contacting the appropriate law enforcement agency should they require such assistance.


    Federal Statistical Reporting Obligations
    Certain campus officials have a duty to report sexual misconduct for federal statistical reporting purposes (Clery Act). All personally identifiable information is kept confidential, but statistical information must be passed along to campus law enforcement regarding the type of incident and its general location (on or off-campus, in the surrounding area, but no addresses are given) for publication in the annual Campus Security Report. This report helps to provide the community with a clear picture of the extent and nature of campus crime, to ensure greater community safety. Mandated federal reporters include: student/conduct, campus law enforcement, local police, coaches, athletic directors, student development staff, student activities staff, human resources staff, advisors to student organizations and any other official with significant responsibility for student and campus activities. The information to be shared includes the date, the location of the incident (using Clery location categories) and the Clery crime category. This reporting protects the identity of the victim and may be done anonymously. 
     


    Federal Timely Warning Reporting Obligations
    In an effort to provide timely notice to the Coastal Bend College community, and in the event of a crime which may pose a serious or ongoing threat to members of the Coastal Bend College community, a "Timely Warning" will be sent to all students and employees via the Coastal Bend College email system. In the event of a failure in email, Timely Warning notices may also be disseminated by placing posters in the building lobbies. These alerts will be prepared and approved by the Director of Public Safety and General Counsel Follow-up information will be disseminated via the Coastal Bend College email system.
    Timely Warnings are usually distributed for the following Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR)/National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) classifications: major incidents arson, criminal homicide, and robbery. Incidents of aggravated assault and sex offenses are considered on a case-by-case basis, depending on the facts of the case and the information known by Coastal Bend College. For example, if an assault occurs between two students who have a disagreement, there may be no on-going threat to other Coastal Bend College community members and a Timely Warning may not be distributed. In cases involving sexual assault, they are often reported long after the incident occurred, thus there is no ability to distribute a "timely" warning notice to the community. Sex offenses will be considered on a case by case basis depending on when and where the incident occurred, when it was reported, and the amount of information known by Coastal Bend College. Timely Warnings may also be posted for other crime classifications, as deemed appropriate.
     


    Sex Offender Registry

    The federal "Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act", enacted on October 28, 2000, went into effect October 28, 2002. The law requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a state concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a state to provide notice, as required under state law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, volunteers services or is a student. Information regarding sexual offenders is available through the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Sex Offender Registry.
