For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
There are three ways to "report" an incident of sexual violence, sexual harassment, dating violence, gender based harassment, stalking, and retaliation.
Reporting an incident to confidential resources, does not launch an investigation and is used for a victim to seek physical, emotional, spiritual, and medical support to help them through a traumatic expierence. Reporting an incident to a non-confidential resource helps to prevent future offenses within the MMA community and launches an impartial, administrative, investigation that may result in disciplinary action. A victim also always has the right to make no report at all.
Make No Report
It is always within the victims rights to make no report at all.
However, the Academy strongly encourages victims to seek medical attention, counseling, and support. A complaint can always be filed with the Academy at a later date, however, a delay in reporting could weaken the evidence necissary to determine whether the accused is found responsible.
