Individuals who believe they have experienced discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, stalking, and/or hazing should review the Guide by clicking on the link above. You are also encouraged to speak to the College’s Title IX Coordinator, Mary Spellman, Assistant Vice President/Dean of Students, whose office is on the first floor of the Heggblade Center. You can also contact her at (909)621-8114 or mspellman@cmc.edu.

In circumstances in which the complaint refers to a member of the CMC faculty, please see Procedures for Student and Faculty Grievances Against Faculty Members and for Faculty Grievances Against Academic Administrators (PDF).

The Claremont Colleges are committed to working together when there is an incident involving individuals from more than one institution. If you have been subject to discrimination, harassment, and/or sexual misconduct by a student, faculty member, or staff member from another of the colleges and you decide to make a complaint, the complaint should be made to the home institution of the alleged perpetrator. Please speak with the Title IX Coordinator or one of the deans in the CMC Dean of Students office who will assist you with pursuing resolution at the home institution of the alleged perpetrator.
