What Does Filing an Anonymous Complaint Mean?

When a complainant's (victim's) identity is unknown or requests to remain confidential the Title IX Coordinator is responsible for reviewing the request and the facts of the case to determine if confidentially can be maintained.

If there is a likelihood of further harm to the complainant and/or the campus community, confidentially may not be able to be maintained. When confidentially is maintained or the complainant’s identity is unknown the College’s ability to take appropriate disciplinary action may be impeded. However, the College will attempt to take steps to address and remedy the effects of the sexual misconduct to prevent reoccurrence.

If a complainant requests to withdraw a formal complaint the Title IX Coordinator or designee will make every effort to determine the reason for the reconsideration. We want to make sure the complainant isn’t being harassed or retaliated against.

These incident reports are for reporting non-critical or non-emergency incidents.
If you have an emergency situation, please contact:
• Monmouth College Security at 309-337-5708 or 911 (on-campus emergencies)
• City of Monmouth Police at 309-734-8383 or 911 (off-campus emergencies)
