How to Report

The term sexual violence includes sexual assault, intimate partner violence, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. DCC policies and the Penal Law of the State of New York define these terms differently. As a member of the DCC community, you have the right to report incidents of sexual violence to the College, to the police, or to both.
