  • Giving you options for changing your academic schedule or on-campus housing;
  • Issuing no-contact directives for Fort Lewis College community members;
  • Prohibiting retaliation for your report or for your participation in a criminal or college disciplinary process. Those found violating our anti-retaliation policy will be sanctioned;

  • Discussing other options, depending on your needs and the circumstances.

FLC DISCIPLINARY PROCESS: If you wish and Fort Lewis College agrees to pursue the incident as a disciplinary matter:

  • The College will make every effort to resolve the matter in a timely manner and in accordance with your wishes.
  • Retaliation against a participant in a disciplinary or criminal matter will not be tolerated.
  • The College will keep participants in a disciplinary matter informed as it progresses.
  • Participants in a disciplinary matter can choose to provide information to an investigator or a hearing body without seeing or hearing from individual(s) accused of sexual misconduct.
