Reporting Sexual Harassment or Assualt

This page contains the general procedures for faculty and staff reporting sexual harassment, assault, or any type of gender based discrimination.  If you are looking for student processes please visit this page instead.  Keep in mind that the contacts listed below are here to help, so even if you are uncertain as to who is the correct contact any of the individuals listed will be able to help you find the assistance you need.  If you need information about reporting other crimes, or Clery reports you will find that information on the relevant Public Safety page.

Members of the community who feel that they are victims of harassment or have witnessed harassment are strongly encouraged to report the incident(s) to the Human Resources department (501-450-1415) or the Provost’s Office (501-450-1273).  Either office will assist and the process will be consistent across the two. These options are available for the comfort and convenience of those reporting. All complaints will be investigated and resolved in a timely manner.  The college is committed to the preservation of the rights of both the accuser and the accused in question, including the right to confidentiality insofar as legal requirements and issues of individual and community safety allow, the right to the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair and timely process.

While each investigation varies greatly based on the nature of the accusation, all parties involved can expect the case to be resolved within 60 days from the date it was reported.
