In circumstances in which the complaint refers to a member of the CMC faculty, please see Procedures for Student and Faculty Grievances Against Faculty Members and for Faculty Grievances Against Academic Administrators.

The Claremont Colleges are committed to working together when there is an incident involving individuals from more than one institution.

Please speak with the Title IX Coordinator or one of the deans in the CMC Dean of Students office who will assist you with pursuing resolution at the home institution of the alleged perpetrator.
