Comprehensive programming, initiatives, strategies and campaigns intended to prevent sexual assault; domestic violence, dating violence and stalking have been developed and implemented. These programs were developed following collaboration among Human Resources/Title IX Coordinator, Student Affairs, Public Safety, Provost Office and Residence Life. Research consisted of information found under the NCAA Five Step Program, review of current records and possible trends, and review of target groups and timely training events.
Prevention and awareness programs begin during the orientation of incoming freshmen and transfer students, as well as new employees. These programs include the definitions of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, who the victims may be, reporting procedures, what a victim should do, and options available to victims. The definition of “consent” in reference to sexual activity is also covered in these sessions. Additionally, bystander intervention is thoroughly covered. Departments actively involved in training and orientations include the Title IX Coordinator, Student Affairs, Student Conduct, the Center for Student Involvement, Health Services, Residence Life, Student Counselors, Public Safety, Provost Office and Human Resources. In addition, the Nassau and Suffolk Counties’ Safe Center of Long Island is contracted to provide up to 16 hours of on-campus counseling a week.
Victims of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking are provided written notification of their rights, options they may choose and assistance available through brochures maintained and distributed from the Public Safety Command Center. The public safety incident report has a “check-off box” to make certain victims of the above incidents have been given the written notification.
The brochures “Sexual Assault: What Every Adelphi University Student Needs to Know” and “Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Stalking: What Every Adelphi Student Needs to Know” distributed to all students. It includes information on the nature of sexual assaults, prevention of sexual assaults and in the event of a sexual assault, how to report it, use support services, proceed judicially on campus, criminally and civilly, among other information. Employees are given the brochures as part of employee orientation.
A program on Sexual Assault Prevention, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence and Stalking and bystander intervention is presented during orientation. Workshops, lectures and training are provided throughout the year for resident students, resident assistants, residence hall directors, commuter students, student government leaders, student athletes, clubs, employees, campus authorities, and other groups. In addition, Title IX training is conducted by the Title IX coordinator and further includes all faculty, public safety officers, and Greek Life students.
Informative pamphlets are available at the Student Counseling Center in the University Center and Health Services in Waldo Hall.
