Policies and Procedures Under Title IX
In Case of Emergency
In an emergency call 911 or contact Public Safety at 617-879-2151.
Wheelock College has developed procedures for investigating and resolving complaints of sexual or gender-based harassment, discrimination, and misconduct. The College encourages individuals who experience or witness sexual or gender-based misconduct to report the incident so that they may obtain support and so the College can respond appropriately. Please refer to the Reporting Misconduct page to learn more about reporting options.
There are two manners (informal and formal) in which the College attempts to bring resolution to a complaint of sexual or gender-based misconduct. When a complaint is filed, the Title IX Coordinator or designated investigator will discuss both processes with the Complainant to determine how they wish to proceed. The Title IX Coordinator or designated investigator will take into consideration the Complainant's preferred process and discuss with the Respondent to determine whether it is an appropriate manner of resolution. The informal resolution process is never appropriate for cases involving alleged sexual assault. Both the informal and formal procedures for resolving a complaint are detailed in the Policy Against Sexual Misconduct: Title IX Policy and Procedures.
