Sexual Misconduct includes relationship violence, interpersonal violence or sexual harassment.

It’s our goal to create a supportive climate that encourages victims/survivors of sexual misconduct to report the incident(s).

College Employees

College employees who have been or are being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sex discrimination, or who are aware of another who has been or is being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sex discrimination should notify the college Federal Compliance Officer immediately so appropriate action can be taken. 


Students who have been or are being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sex discrimination, or who are aware of another who has been or is being subjected to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sex discrimination are strongly encouraged to notify the college Federal Compliance Officer,  Department of Public Safety and Police, other appropriate college authorities or local law enforcement.

Reports may be made in person, by telephone, in writing, by e-mail, online, or anonymously. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Title IX Coordinator at 410-777-1239 or

Report Concerning or Threatening Behavior

The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is an interdisciplinary group of faculty, staff and administrators who meet regularly to review, and when necessary, respond to student disruptive behavior and mental health issues that may pose an immediate disruption to normal College function. The BIT is based on the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management (NCHERM) model which addresses concerns about students in distress and suggests options for appropriate action by the College. Learn more about the Behavioral Intervention Team.
