N-1-4 Informal Process
The College recognizes that some individuals may wish to resolve an incident(s) on their own, but may need support to do so. In the event that the reporting party wishes to resolve a situation on their own, they are encouraged first to report the incident(s) to the lead staff person. That person will document the incident(s) and can then coach the reporting party on how to resolve the situation, provide options for personal support, and discuss the formal process. The reporting party is encouraged to notify the lead staff member as to whether the concerns were resolved.
Note that the College reserves the right to move the concern to a formal process if the reported action is a repeated behavior and/or a threat to the health and safety of the College.
