These are the procedures to address Sexual Misconduct involving students (Student Procedures). These procedures provide for the prompt and equitable investigation and adjudication of complaints of sexual misconduct of which UMGC has Actual Knowledge. As well as ensure that UMGC is compliant with federal and State law as well as UMGC's Policy 041.00 - Sexual Misconduct (the Policy).
"Actual Knowledge" as also defined in the Policy, means notice of Sexual Misconduct or allegations of Sexual Misconduct has been given to UMGC's Title IX Coordinator or a designated official of UMGC, as identified in the Policy, who has the authority to institute corrective measures on UMGC's behalf.
While prompt reporting may aid an investigation, there is no time limit imposed as to when a Formal Complaint may be initiated against a current student, provided they were a UMGC student at the time of the alleged incident.
