Confidential Resource(s)

Due to the size of Montserrat, in addition to one on-campus confidential resource,  we have also designated an off-campus resource as our ‘confidential resource’. A Confidential Resource (CR) is a designated to be available to both students and employees to:

  • Describe all aspect of reporting options
  • Provide information on counseling and crisis services, both on and off campus
  • Provide information on medical services, both on and off campus
  • Explain the available supportive measures for students
  • Explain the institutional disciplinary process
  • Provide information on the legal processes by local law enforcement
  • Must affirmatively notify the complainant of rights regarding protective and no-contact orders

Title IX Training

Title IX Coordinator, Deputy Coordinator, investigators, hearing officers, and appeal officers are required to participate in annual training. In addition, on-going training programs are offered on-campus, including at new student orientation. Due to the size of our college and community, once we determine a matter to fall under Title IX, we outsource investigations, hearings and resolutions.
