Confidentiality

Confidentiality

Lackawanna College will honor requests for confidentiality to the greatest extent possible. The college will take appropriate steps to respond to and investigate a sexual misconduct claim in accordance with the victim’s request for confidentiality. However, the college’s ability to resolve the complaint may be limited. In the event that the complainant requests the strictest confidentiality, they must contact one of the confidential resources provided below:

  • Women’s Resource Center
  • Victim’s Resource Center

Once Lackawanna College deems that the incident poses an immediate threat to the campus community, it may not be able to adhere to the complainant’s request for confidentiality. Lackawanna College has a responsibility to provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment for all students and staff. The college will notify the complainant in the event that it cannot ensure their confidentiality.

In the event that Lackawanna College is hindered from pursuing disciplinary action against the alleged perpetrator because of the victim’s request for confidentiality, it will take necessary steps to limit the effects of the harassment and prevent its recurrence.
