How to Report Sexual Misconduct

It is the right of those who believe they have experienced sexual misconduct to choose whether or not to report the matter to the college and/or law enforcement. The college, however, urges anyone who has experienced sexual assault, domestic, dating violence, or stalking to seek support as soon as possible to minimize and treat physical and emotional harm and to understand the options for reporting.

It is also important to obtain medical treatment following sexual assault or other acts of violence. A hospital exam to collect evidence for potential criminal prosecution should be done as soon as possible after the incident. The Campus Sexual Assault Victims' Bill of Rights exists as a part of the campus security reporting requirements, commonly known as the Jeanne Clery Act and provides information on the rights of those who report sexual violence on a college campus.

Any person may report an incident of sexual assault, interpersonal violence (including domestic and dating violence), stalking, sexual harassment, and sex discrimination to one the Title IX Coordinator via the online reporting form; via email at; via mail at P.O. Box 818, Baytown TX 77520-0818, or by calling Title IX coordinator directly. Reports can be made regardless of whether the person reporting is the person alleged to be subject to the complaint. The online reporting from allows for anonymous reports.

What Happens Next?

After a report or formal complaint is submitted, a Title IX coordinator will review the report or formal complaint and will reach out to the reporter, complainant, and other appropriate parties to discuss next steps and provide information on specific resources and accommodations related to the report or formal complaint. Title IX requires that a complainant who is alleging sex discrimination and/or sexual harassment submit a formal complaint in order to initiate the grievance process. Filing a formal complaint will initiate the grievance process related to the reported allegations which includes initiating an investigation, and/or initiating the informal resolution process, and/or the student conduct process.

Understanding Confidentiality

All reports are treated with the greatest degree of confidentiality possible. Confidentiality is maintained on a need-to-know basis with respect to the college's obligations to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct and take the appropriate corrective action. Anyone making a report should be aware that all Lee College employees are mandatory reporters and are required to report to a Title IX Coordinator any information of sexual misconduct brought to their attention.

The college has a designated individual to serve as the confidential employee to provide support in a secure environment in which questions can be asked, information provided, and guidance offered should the student wish to report the sexual misconduct to the college. Confidential Employees are not required to report any information about an incident of sexual misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator without the student's written permission unless there is concern the individual will likely cause serious physical harm to self or others; or the information concerns conduct involving suspected abuse or neglect of a minor or elder. The following employee serves as the confidential employee for the college.
