Fair and Equal Process for Both Parties

NEC has sought to design its process to both respond appropriately to complaints alleging inappropriate sexual behavior while also providing a fair and equal process for both parties. The following efforts will be made in the utilization of the Sexual Misconduct Policy:

  • The right to an investigation and appropriate resolution of credible allegations of sexual misconduct or discrimination made in good faith to NEC officials;
  • The right to be treated with respect by NEC officials;
  • The right not to be pressured to mediate or otherwise informally resolve any reported sexual misconduct or gender based discrimination or harassment; 
  • The right not to be discouraged by NEC officials from reporting sexual misconduct or gender based discrimination or harassment to both on-campus and off-campus authorities;
  • The right to be informed by NEC officials of options to notify proper law enforcement authorities, including on-campus and local police, and the option to be assisted by campus authorities in notifying such authorities, if the reporting party so chooses. This also includes the right not to be pressured to report, as well;
  • The right to be notified of available resources including:  counseling, mental health, victim advocacy, health, legal assistance, student financial aid, visa and immigration assistance, or other student services, both on campus and in the community;
  • The right to a campus no contact order (or a trespass order against a non-affiliated third party) when someone has engaged in or threatens to engage in stalking, threatening, harassing or other improper behavior that presents a danger to the welfare of the reporting party or others;
  • The right to notification of and options for, and available assistance in, changing academic and living situations after an alleged sexual misconduct or gender based discrimination or harassment incident, if so requested by the reporting party and if such changes are reasonably available;
  • The right to be informed of campus policies and procedures as well as the nature and extent of all alleged violations contained within the report;
  • The right to regular updates on the status of the investigation and/or resolution;
  • The right to preservation of privacy, to the extent possible and permitted by law;
  • The right to meetings and/or interviews that are closed to the public;
  • The right to petition that any NEC representative in the process be recused on the basis of demonstrated bias or conflict-of-interest;
  • The right to bring an advisor of their choosing to all phases of the investigation and resolution proceeding in which they are invited;
  • The right to submit an impact statement in writing to the Title IX Coordinator following determination of responsibility, but prior to sanctioning;
  • The right to be promptly informed of the outcome and sanction of the resolution process in writing, without undue delay between the notifications to the parties;
  • The right to be informed in writing of when a decision is considered final, any changes to the sanction to occur before the decision is finalized, to be informed of the right to appeal the finding and sanction of the resolution process, and the procedures for doing so in accordance with the standards for appeal established by NEC.
