Safety for attending class, program activity, or scheduled work 

When reporting a Title IX incident fear of returning to the location or seeing the perpetrator again can cause fear and anxiety.

Retaliation 

It is not unusual to wonder what actions the perpetrator may take once they have learned a complaint has been filed against them.

If retaliation takes place, it is the college's responsibility to take immediate action to stop the action(s).
