William James College Safety and Support
William James College has established a comprehensive system of safety and support for the community. William James College is committed to maintaining a safe learning and work environment. To ensure the safety of our community and its members we encourage you to report any incidents of concern about your safety or the safety of others.
Any student, staff, or faculty member who has a concern about safety is encouraged to make a report.
This can be done by:
Concerns of sexual misconduct, assault, domestic/dating violence, or sexual harassment can be reported directly to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator: Dan Brent, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you feel you have been hazed or harmed, or if you have seen or have knowledge of a hazing/harmful incident, please complete this Hazing Report Form to the best of your ability. Please note that all reports submitted through this form will be directed to the William James College administration.
CARE (Crisis Assessment Risk Evaluation) Team
The CARE Team is an interdepartmental support team established to assess and manage potential concerns and threats to the both individuals and the William James community at large. The team is comprised of administrators from a range of departments so as to collaborate with the greatest amount of information available. The Team is led by the Dean of Students and includes a representative from Human Resources, Facilities/Security, College Designated Title IX Officer, faculty representative(s), Legal Counsel (as needed), and Law Enforcement (as needed). The CARE Team will report directly to the VPAA.
After initial assessment of a report, an investigative plan will be developed by the Dean of Students or VPAA. This includes interviews, data collection, and other outside agencies to be consulted if necessary. The CARE Team will consult on the management of such plan, as needed, for affected individuals and the campus. Lastly, all final findings will be reported to the proper College administration for review and potential resolution. The CARE Team is not involved in the adjudication of complaints.
