Equity Compliance

Resources

Mount Ida College is committed to providing support resources to members of our community who may have experienced or witnessed sexual misconduct, discrimination or harassment or who maybe going through a resolution process with the College.  Below is a list of resources that are available both on and off campus.

Resources listed as “Confidential” have legally recognized privilege which requires them to keep information confidential when it is disclosed to them in the course of their professional role.  This means that, except under limited circumstance, they must keep what their clients tell them secret.   Making a disclosure to a confidential resource means that the College will not be notified of the incident.
