CCAD believes in a supportive and inclusive community where a diverse group of students can belong and thrive. The Student Code of Conduct sets out the behavioral expectations for students enrolled at CCAD and all students are advised to review it. The Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students oversees the community standards process and questions or concerns can be directed to: email@example.com.
WHAT IS SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
Sexual misconduct will not be tolerated at the Columbus College of Art and Design. Furthermore, the college is firmly committed to ensuring an educational environment that is free from any form of sex or gender based harassment, discrimination, or unequal treatment. Sexual misconduct is a broad term that includes but is not limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault (non-consensual sexual contact, non-consensual sexual intercourse, and forced sexual intercourse), sexual exploitation, stalking, intimate partner violence, and retaliation. Such behaviors are inconsistent with CCAD’s core values that underscore human dignity, promote respect, and renounce violence in any form.
HOW TO REPORT SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
Complaints of sexual misconduct should be made to Chris Mundell, Vice President for Student Affairs (Title IX Coordinator), or Athena Sanders, Assistant Dean of Students (Title IX Investigator).
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits gender-based discrimination and sexual misconduct of all kinds; one requirement of Title IX is that all schools must identify a Title IX Coordinator. At CCAD, the Title IX Coordinator and Title Investigator are both familiar with CCAD’s policies, resolution procedures, and sources of help on-and off-campus. The Title IX Coordinator also monitors compliance with Title IX reporting requirements and oversees training to the community on the issue of sexual misconduct.
Reports may also be made to Safety & Security
Our experience shows that sometimes a student will feel more comfortable telling a trusted member of the community that they have experienced sexual misconduct.
Please note that all employees of the college except for those identified as confidential resources (see below) are considered "Responsible Employees" under CCAD’s sexual misconduct policy and are therefore required to inform the Title IX Coordinator and/or their direct supervisor of any instance of sexual misconduct that comes to their attention.
