Sexual Assault Response

Isothermal Community College has taken a proactive stance for safety and security by establishing a Sexual Assault Response Team (SART). SART has developed procedures for responding to students who report they are victims of sexual assault. SART includes the Dean of Students, the Dean of Continuing Education, the Director of Human Resources, the Vice President of Administrative Services, and
representatives from the Campus Enforcement and Counseling departments as appropriate.

Any representative of SART as well as counseling staff may provide students with information regarding community assistance programs that supplement college services in areas such as personal safety, domestic violence, sexual assault, etc. Also, educational programs and materials are made available to assist students in managing personal safety and sexual assault prevention. For more information, contact Student Services, Human Resources, and/or Campus Enforcement.
