Our commitment to you:
Education is the key to preventing sexual assault on campus.
- We will continue to educate our faculty and staff on roles and responsibilities. It is crucial that they understand their responsibility as mandatory reporters.
- We will continue to educate investigators on roles and responsibilities.
- We will continue to customize training to educate young men and women on the legal definition of sexual assault, what constitutes consent, and how to engage in responsible bystander action.
- We will inform parents early on so they can become partners in prevention with the College.
- We will continue to utilize various delivery methods including face-to-face training, online training webinars, social media, apps and interactive theater to spread awareness.
Sometimes students are reluctant to report an incident of sexual misconduct as alcohol or other drugs were involved. In cases of sexual assault, the College will grant amnesty from violations of alcohol or drug policies to students who file a report and/or who were victimized by an act of sexual misconduct.
