As is the case when there is a serious health emergency, an IFR Board Member or a senior IFR staff member is dispatched quickly to the field school to ensure student or staff safety, or gather reports and document the situation. An investigative committee may be formed, depending on the circumstance, in order to conduct interviews, determine the nature of the facts, and formulate a report for IFR action. Once the investigation is completed, the IFR Board receives the report and makes a determination about IFR’s actions. If claims of harassment or assault or discrimination are substantiated by an IFR investigation, IFR may offer support to the victim should they wish to submit a police report. If a student is involved, then a report may be made to the Title IX office of the student’s home institution. IFR may choose to terminate its relationship with a field program.
