Ongoing Assistance

Counseling and Medical Care Information

In addition to ongoing access to counseling services and medical care both on and off campus, students can opt for additional assistance.

Advocacy Support

The College’s Assistant Director of Health Promotion can provide support, information, and referrals to students. She can help students in understanding the College’s Student Handbook Policy Regarding Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Exploitation, Stalking, Dating Violence, and Domestic Violence. Please note that the Assistant Director of Health Promotion can talk to a victim / reporting person (or Complainant) without being required to disclose personally identifiable information about the victim / Complainant to the Title IX Coordinator. Students can seek assistance from the Assistant Director of Health Promotion without triggering an investigation that would reveal the identity of the victim / Complainant but the Assistant Director of Health Promotion will share a limited report to inform the Title IX Coordinator of the date, time, general location, nature of the sexual violence on or off campus, and name of the perpetrator if known. The Assistant Director of Health Promotion will not share any information with the Title IX Coordinator that would identify the victim / Complainant. This general information is necessary for the College to track patterns, evaluate the scope of the problem, and formulate appropriate campus-wide responses. Before sharing the general report with the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator, the Assistant Director of Health Promotion will work to consult with the victim / Complainant to ensure that no personally identifiable details about the victim / Complainant are shared.
