Any Title IX grievance must be:
- Submitted in writing;
- Provide the name, address, and contact information of the person submitting the grievance;
- Describe the facts alleged to have occurred;
- State the College policies or procedures alleged to have been misapplied; and,
- Identify any additional facts or circumstances relevant to the matter, including contact information, if known, for any other involved parties.
