When the participants meet with the investigator, the investigator will ask the participant to share their experience and/or knowledge of the incident. Participants will also be asked for copies of text messages, emails, social media information, etc. that are relevant to the complaint.
Once all statements have been confirmed, the investigator will share a copy of the initial investigative report with the Complainant and the Respondent. The report will include all statements from all parties, copies of text messages/emails/other information submitted for the complaint, and all other evidence collected during the investigation. This is the time to submit any additional information that the party feels is missing from the report, such as other witness testimony, text messages/emails, etc. The investigator will gather all this information and follow up with participants to ask clarifying questions, as needed.
Once all follow-ups have occurred, the investigator will submit a final investigative report to the Title IX Coordinator, Deputy Coordinators, Complainant, and Respondent. The report will include all statements from all parties and copies of text messages/emails/other information relevant to the complaint.
Both parties will be notified of the investigative outcome via their Centre College email.
