Frequently Asked Questions

What if I was drinking when I was assaulted or harassed?

Carleton's Sexual Misconduct Policy includes an amnesty provision for students who provide information about alcohol or drug use in a sexual misconduct case. That means that information about alcohol or drug use that comes to light during a sexual misconduct investigation will not be referred for disciplinary action.  In addition, the Northfield Police will not cite a person for underage consumption if a sexual assault has occurred. The focus will be on caring for the complainant as needed, not on alcohol use.
