Get Help Now
Monmouth College is committed to upholding a campus environment free from acts of harassment and discrimination.
STOP! If you or someone you know has experienced Sexual Harassment or Sexual Misconduct and need help…
First and foremost, not everyone responds the same and it is important to do what is right for you. If you or someone you know has been assaulted, please consider seeking immediate medical attention at the hospital, seek support from our Confidential Advisor. (after hours call Campus Safety) or call Victim Services (24-hour crisis line), file a report, or reach out to the Equity Coordinator.
We have supportive measures to protect your safety.
Supportive measures are non-disciplinary, non-punitive individualized services offered as appropriate, as reasonably available, and without fee or charge to the parties to restore or preserve access to Monmouth College’s education program or activity, including measures designed to protect the safety of all parties or Monmouth College’s educational environment, and/or deter harassment, discrimination, and/or retaliation.
The Equity Coordinator promptly makes supportive measures available to the parties upon receiving notice or a complaint. At the time that supportive measures are offered, Monmouth College will inform the Complainant, in writing, that they may file a formal complaint with the Monmouth College either at that time or in the future, if they have not done so already. The Equity Coordinator works with the Complainant to ensure that their wishes are taken into account with respect to the supportive measures that are planned and implemented.
Monmouth College will maintain the privacy of the supportive measures, provided that privacy does not impair Monmouth College’s ability to provide the supportive measures. Monmouth College will act to ensure as minimal an academic impact on the parties as possible. Monmouth College will implement measures in a way that does not unreasonably burden the other party.
