Reporting an Incident to the Office of Diversity, Compliance and Title IX

The Office of Diversity, Compliance, and Title IX encourages all Cerritos applicants, admits, current and former students, faculty, staff, and community members to report incidents of protected class and sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator. There are two (2) reporting options: submitting an Incident Report and filing a Formal Complaint.

An Incident Report is a means of alerting the Office of Diversity, Compliance, and Title IX to a situation. Upon receipt, the Title IX Coordinator will reach out to the impacted party(ies) with information regarding support, resources, and options regarding moving forward. In nearly all situations, the submission of an incident report does not initiate a formal process and the impacted individual(s) will have the agency to determine what, if any, reporting/judicial options they choose to pursue.

Pursuant to the August 2020 Department of Education Title IX regulations, a Formal Complaint is the first step in a formal resolution process. The submission of a Formal Report informs the Office of Diversity, Compliance, and Title IX, about a situation and signals that you would like to initiate a formal process, such as an investigation or alternative/informal resolution. Upon receipt of a Formal Complaint, the Title IX Coordinator will notify all parties of receipt and provide a rationale for acceptance or dismissal. It is significant to note that only individuals currently participating in or attempting to participate in District events or functions can submit a Formal Complaint. Additional information regarding the Formal Complaint submission process can be found by reviewing Administrative Procedure 3434 (Responding to Harassment Based on Sex under Title IX).

The Office of Diversity, Compliance, and Title IX staff is available to answer questions regarding the Incident Report and Formal Complaint processes and assist you in completing any of the reports.
