Private Support Resources

In this section, the term Title IX Matter encompasses sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking, other sexual misconduct, and sexual harassment. The resources listed in this section will protect your privacy. In short, this means they will only share what you tell them about a Title IX Matter with individuals who need to know the information in order to provide support or provide assistance to the survivor. However, they are required to report information they receive about incidents to a member of Scripps’ Title IX team (and, sometimes in cross-campus matters to the other college’s Title IX office). Click here for more information on the meaning of privacy (and confidentiality and anonymity).

Dean of Students/On-call Dean/Primary Contact Deans

All members of the Dean of Students office are responsible employees.  This means that these individuals will take great care to safeguard your privacy but are legally obligated to report what you tell them about a Title IX Matter to a member of the Title IX team. Contact the On-Call Dean through Campus Safety at (909) 607-2000.

Peer Mentors

If you are a first year student, your assigned peer mentor is not a responsible employee. This means that in the absence of imminent threat to self or others, your peer mentor is not required to report what you disclose about a Title IX Matter to the Title IX Office, though in offering you support your peer mentor may explore this option with you. Please note, however, that the new student program coordinators and the peer mentor team leaders are responsible employees. This means that they will take great care to safeguard your privacy but are legally obligated to report what you tell them to a member of the Title IX team. Also remember that you can access confidential resources in lieu speaking to a responsible employee, especially while you are figuring out whether you want to report to the College.

Resident Assistants, Faculty, and other Responsible Employees

Sometimes talking to a fellow student or a faculty or staff mentor may be comforting. Keep in mind that faculty and RAs are responsible employees. Other staff are responsible employees depending on their role. This means that they will take great care to safeguard your privacy but are legally obligated to report what you tell them to a member of the Title IX team. If you do disclose a Title IX Matter to a responsible employee, you will receive a follow-up email from the Title IX office inviting you to come in for a meeting. Also remember that you can access confidential resources in lieu speaking to a responsible employee, especially while you are figuring out whether you want to report to the College.

Academic Support

Experience tells us that it is not uncommon for students to discover they need academic support in the aftermath of a Title IX Matter. If you feel such support would be helpful for you, you may contact your Primary Contact Dean (PCD) or Deputy Title IX Coordinator, Leslie Schynder. You’re not required to disclose the full circumstances of the incident in order to obtain academic support, though sometimes limiting what you disclose could interfere with her ability to fully and comprehensively assess and address your needs. If you choose instead to speak directly to your professors, please know that they too, as responsible employees, have a legal obligation to report to a member of the Title IX team.

Reporting to CUC Campus Safety (CS)

The staff at CS are responsible employees, which means that CS is a private (not confidential) resource. CS must notify Scripps and the college of accused (assuming member of Consortium) of all reports of Title IX incidents they receive. Scripps TIX Office will send follow-up email to reporting student inviting the student in for a meeting to discuss the matter. In a law-enforcement emergency, call Campus Safety or 911. You can make a non-emergency report of sexual misconduct to CS by calling the non-emergency line at (909) 621-8170; emailing dispatch at dispatch@cuc.claremont.edu; or visiting the Pendleton Office Building. CS is open 24/7.

Other Supports around the Consortium

The employees at these resources are responsible employees and are therefore obligated to notify Scripps and college of accused (assuming member of Consortium) of all reports they receive of a Title IX Matter. Upon receiving a report, the Scripps TIX Office will send a follow-up email to the reporting student inviting the student in for a meeting to discuss the matter.
