Complete The Academy Incident Report


The Academy is committed to creating and maintaining a community where all members of the campus community (students, faculty, and campus guests) can work and learn in an atmosphere free from violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, intimidation, and retaliation. Every member of the community should be aware that The Academy prohibits all forms of gender discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and retaliation. Such behavior violates federal and state law as well as College policies. Title IX is a neutral office committed to safety, fairness, trauma-informed practices, and due process.

We urge all members of our community to report incidents of gender-based discrimination and sexual misconduct and encourage anyone who has experienced gender-based harassment, discrimination, or sexual misconduct to seek the care and support they deserve. Resources and reporting options are available to anyone (students, staff, and faculty) who may have experiences sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or any other form of gender discrimination. Contact the Title IX Coordinator to report an incident or learn more about available campus and community resources.

Please note, the Title IX Office deals specifically with gender-based discrimination and harassment. You can report all other forms of unlawful discrimination or harassment by submitting a completed complaint form here.
