Sexual Assault & Violence Response Resources
North Country Community college takes reports of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking seriously. If you are a student of NCCC and have experienced any of the above, this Sexual Assault & Violence Response (SAVR) Resources Website provides you with information you can use to seek resources and support, and to report the crime to law enforcement and the campus.
NCCC students and employees have the right to make a report to the Student Life Office, Human Resources, local law enforcement, and/or the State Police, or choose not to report; to report the incident to your college; to be protected by the college from retaliation for reporting an incident; and to receive assistance and resources from the College.
The College's policy is that response to sexual violence and related crimes is driven by the reporting victim/survivor. What that means is that in line with Federal and New York State law, while the College encourages you to use all of the response, support and reporting (including criminal reporting) resources offered here, the choice of what resources to use and when is for the victim and survivor.

Climate Assessment Report
SUNY administered a Sexual Violence and Prevention Campus Climate Survey in Spring 2019. The voluntary survey was distributed to all NCCC students, faculty and staff.
By SUNY policy this uniform survey ascertained faculty and staff awareness of policies and resources, and student experience with and knowledge of reporting and college adjudicatory processes for sexual harassment, including sexual violence and other related crimes.
Results indicated that students, faculty and staff are generally aware of the policies and laws, and resources. Continued education will be provided to the college community to ensure compliance and to maintain constant awareness for the students, faculty, and staff.
