Report Discrimination, Harassment or Interpersonal Violence to the College
Any violation can be reported to any employee of the College. Any complaint of harassment or interpersonal violence or any employee who receives a report of an incident will report the incident to the Title IX Coordinator or another member of the Title IX Team.
The Title IX Team is as follows:
Complaints or notice of alleged policy violations, or inquiries about or concerns regarding Title IX policy and procedures, may be made internally to:
Title IX Coordinator
Deputy Coordinator for Academic Affairs
Deputy Coordinator for Human Resources
Deputy Coordinator for the New Martinsville Campus
Deputy Coordinator for the Weirton Campus
Four options in reporting an interpersonal violence:
1. Report assault but choose not to pursue charges.
2. Report assault and pursue internal (College) charges.
3. Report assault and pursue criminal charges.
4. Report assault and pursue both internal (College) and criminal charges.
Report to Law enforcement
For your own protection, call the police immediately, especially if the assailant is still in the immediate area. The police will help you whether or not you choose to prosecute the assailant. Reporting a sexual assault isn’t the same thing as prosecuting a sexual assault; prosecution can be determined later. If the sexual assault was perpetrated by another student, the police department will share your report with WVNCC as well. Contact police by calling 911.
