Any person who experiences sexual harassment and discrimination, partner violence, sexual assault and/or stalking has several options for disclosure and/or reporting. The following reporting options are available to Pomona College students, faculty and staff.
Confidential Resources with Both Legal Privilege and the Duty of Confidentiality
Communications with resources that have legal privilege are provided legal protections from disclosure in court. These resources also possess professional obligations (the duty of confidentiality) to hold such communications in confidence and they cannot divulge information about an individual seeking their services to a third party without that individual’s consent. There are established limits to confidentiality and these must be communicated to the individual seeking services.

College-Designated Resources with a Duty of Confidentiality
Communications with these resources do not have legal privilege and as such are not provided legal protections from disclosure in court. These individuals and/or offices do possess professional obligations (the duty of confidentiality) to hold communications in confidence and they cannot divulge information about an individual seeking their services to a third party without that individual’s consent. In addition to established limits to confidentiality that must be communicated to the individual seeking services they have limited reporting responsibilities federally mandated by the Clery Act. Under the Clery Act, their reporting obligation arises when they become aware of information or allegations of criminal behavior and must report the information regarding an incident to the College’s Clery Coordinator, they do not have to report identifying information about the individuals involved in an incident.

Campus Resources with Reporting Requirements
If cases of sexual assault are reported to College officials such as resident assistants, on-call deans, faculty members and others, these members are legally required to report the misconduct case to the Title IX/Clery coordinator.
- Resident Assistants
- On-Call deans
- Faculty members
Reporting to Law Enforcement
Any and all sexual assaults can be reported to the Claremont Police Department (CPD) at (909) 399-5411 for criminal proceedings. Reporting to CPD does not preclude you from also reporting to campus officials as these are two separate processes that can take place simultaneously.
