Austin Community College is committed to providing timely support and assistance to anyone who has been affected by sexual misconduct. “Sexual misconduct” is an umbrella term that refers collectively to the following offenses:
The college’s policy regarding how it responds to complaints of sexual misconduct is available in full in the Prohibition of Sexual Misconduct section of the ACC Catalog.
Students and employees are strongly encouraged to report sexual misconduct to college authorities and to the local police in order to protect themselves and others. To file a report, any person may contact any of the following:
ACC District Police Department (ACCPD)
Phone: 512-223-1231 (for non-emergencies)
Note: Reporting to the ACC District Police may initiate a criminal investigation into your complaint. The ACC police chief will also determine if a timely warning notice should be sent out to the community and will capture and count crime data if the offense was reported to have occurred on campus or on a property owned or controlled by the institution. The District Police will report your complaint to the District Title IX Coordinator.
The City of Austin Police Department
Phone: 911 (for emergencies), 311 or 512-974-2000 (for non-emergencies)
Note: The City of Austin Police Department may not share the details of your report with ACC. If you report to the city police, you should also report to the ACC Title IX coordinator so on-campus accommodations, interim protective measures, and resources may be provided.
District Title IX Coordinator, Charlene Buckley
Note: Reporting to the ACC Title IX coordinator will not result in a criminal investigation but will result in an administrative investigation to determine if ACC’s sexual harassment policy was violated. If the incident occurred on campus, limited information will be shared with ACC police for purposes of determining if a timely warning notice should be sent out to the community and for purposes of capturing and counting crime data.
Individuals who do not wish to make formal incident reports or file charges, may still have the right to other support services including reasonable accommodations and interim protective measures.
