If a student is hesitant to report an incident because of another violation occurring at the same time (e.g., under-age drinking) Parkland College offers amnesty for minor policy violations surrounding the incident.
Parkland College will take ongoing steps to protect the survivor from retaliation or harm. Retaliation against a reporting party is a violation of this policy. Some interim measures include:
- Assisting the survivor in accessing legal, medical, and academic
- Providing the survivor with security and other support (for example, rearranging a course schedule)
- Inform survivor of right to report incident to campus or law enforcement
- Educational measures that do not identify the survivor, but address violations
RANGE OF SANCTIONS
Students or Employees found in violation of this policy are subject to sanctions included in the Code of Conduct, employee guidebooks, collective bargaining agreements, etc.; up to and including expulsion or termination.
