Amnesty

Under Title IX and the WCC Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct Code; amnesty may be available for reporters of sexual misconduct.

For Victims

The College may provide amnesty to victims who may be hesitant to report to College officials because they fear that they themselves may be accused of minor policy violations, such as underage drinking, at the time of the incident. At the discretion of the President or his/her designee, amnesty may be extended on a case-by-case basis. When amnesty is provided, educational options will be explored, but no conduct proceedings or conduct record will result.

For Those Who Offer Assistance

To encourage students to offer help and assistance to others, the College may provide amnesty for minor violations when students offer help to others in need. At the discretion of the President or his/her designee, amnesty may also be extended on a case-by-case basis to the person receiving assistance. When amnesty is provided, educational options will be explored, but no conduct proceedings or conduct record will result.

For Those Who Report Serious Violations

Students who are engaged in minor violations but who choose to bring related serious violations by others to the attention of the College may be offered amnesty (at the discretion of the President or his/her designee) for their minor violations. When amnesty is provided, educational options will be explored, but no conduct proceedings or record will result.

Abuse of Amnesty

Abuse of amnesty requests can result in a decision by the President or his/her designee not to extend amnesty to the same person repeatedly.
