Security

Federal College Security Report

Paier College of Art is a small family owned and operated Fine Art College located in Hamden Connecticut. Its size contributes to anyone working, attending or visiting the college to feel at home. People are treated individually, one on one and are not just a number. The officers, administration and faculty of Paier College practice an open door policy. Everyone from the President down to the part-time faculty is approachable and accommodating. This type of environment makes it easy for our students to ask questions, inquire about services, or register complaints. It is like one big family.

Any occurrence of criminal activity or any type of emergency can be brought to any of the aforementioned individuals. Ultimately, the Provost and Director of Facilities would be made aware of the situation and act upon it. A memo would be issued to all faculty, if necessary, to make them aware of the situation. That information would then also be passed onto the student body, either by the instructor or through the student council. The President is the individual responsible for the annual security report. The information contained in that report therefore, would be as comprehensive as possible.

The campus of Paier College is relatively small. Quite simply, it is four buildings and a parking lot. There are no dormitory facilities and no off campus locations. The size of the campus strongly contributes to its safety and security. Nothing negative happens without word of it spreading rapidly. There is no daytime security force but the Hamden police have a quick response reputation.

Although the campus is quite secure, students are always reminded to use common sense. At freshman orientation, students are reminded to lock cars in the parking lot and keep a close eye on personal belongings. They are also introduced to several of the key people within the administration. After orientation, students are encouraged to attend the weekly student council meetings. The meeting times and dates are posted throughout the school. This is another forum to address any issues that concern students.

Paier College maintains a dry campus. Possession and/or the use of alcohol or drugs on campus or at any school functions is not allowed. This policy is strictly enforced by the administration. Drug free workplace documents are posted throughout the school advising all faculty and student of Paier College's drug free environment. The schools policy of being a dry campus in regard to alcohol is published in our catalog and our student handbook. The on campus Director of Counseling Services is responsible for drug and alcohol abuse education. The Director addresses substance abuse at freshman orientation and makes himself readily available for any future consultations.

Common sense prevails when reporting any incident of harassment, sexual or otherwise. Providing the instructor himself is not the source, it is to the instructor the student would report first. Should the matter not be dealt with satisfactorily or it is the instructor who stands accused, the next authority would be the Dean. Should the party harmed wish not to make any official complaint or seek counsel anonymously, the college has a full time professional counselor on staff and he may be consulted at any time.

Ultimately, the president of the college will hear all complaints, either specifically through channels as the complaint becomes formalized or unofficially from the counselor, alerting that there may be a problem worth clarifying. In any event, any accusations will be investigated and taken to whatever level necessary until resolved. Sexual harassment posters are posted at key student areas, which advise individuals of their rights and also give them information on who to contact if their rights have been violated.

Policy on Campus Intranasal Naloxone

POLICY TITLE: Intranasal Naloxone

RESPONSIBLE OFFICE: Office of the Provost

RESPONSIBLE OFFICIAL: The Provost

EFFECTIVE: January 1st 2020

DISTRIBUTE: All faculty/staff/students

Policy on Intranasal Naloxone Use on Campus

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to participate in an initiative to quell opioid-related drug overdose fatalities in the State of Connecticut and to proactively ensure Paier College of Art Students, Staff, Faculty and visitors have access to the life-saving drug Naloxone (brand name, “Narcan”). Naloxone is a safe, easy to administer medication that reverses the life-threatening effects of an opioid overdose. This policy will assist the Paier College of Art Community with easily locating a supply of Naloxone on campus; seeking assistance from the Office of the Provost and Emergency Medical Services (police, ambulance services, fire department etc.).

Definitions

Intranasal Naloxone – an opiate receptor antagonist and antidote for opiate overdose produced in intranasal form.

Opioid Overdose – an acute condition including, but not limited to, extreme physical illness, decreased level of consciousness, respiratory depression, coma, or death resulting from the consumption or use of an opiate, or another substance with which an opiate was combined, or that a layperson could reasonably believe to be an opiate-related drug overdose that requires medical assistance.

Patient – a person who may be experiencing an opioid overdose.

Paier Responder– A Paier employee who will assist a person who may be experiencing an opioid overdose.

EMS – “Emergency Medical Services” that provide pre-hospital emergency medical care; such practitioners provide out of hospital care for those with illnesses or injury.

 

Policy Information

When a person is rendered unresponsive or suffering from possible opioid overdose 911 should be called as soon as possible and an administrator/staff/faculty member at Paier should be notified as soon as possible (prior to, during or as soon as practicable after each use of Intranasal Naloxone). Paier College of Art strongly suggests that Nalxone be administered while on the phone with EMS or in the presence of EMS. Once EMS personnel has arrived, the Paier responder must inform EMS about the care given and turn over the used Intranasal Naloxone device to be disposed of properly.

 

Naloxone kits will be stored in the following places:

  • The first floor of building 14 next to the fire extinguisher. The kit will be in a labeled box attached to the wall.
  • The library next to the fire extinguisher. The kit will be in a labeled box attached to the wall.
  • The first floor lobby of building 20 next to the fire extinguisher. The kit will be in a labeled box attached to the wall.

Paier College of Art’s Naloxone policy will be covered in each student orientation (January and August of each year); each faculty and staff orientation (January and August of each year); and be listed in the student handbook and employee handbook. The policy will also be readily available on the www.paier.edu website.

The Office of the Provost will manage the purchase, storage and distribution of Naloxone. The expiration date of each Naloxone kit will be noted in an electronic calendar system each year. Two (2) months prior to a Naloxone kit’s expiry the Provost will be notified and a replacement kit will be obtained. Each kit will be inspected monthly to determine replacement of used or expired opioid antagonists. Please email SAmorosino@paier.edu or call 203.287.3031 if you have questions about Naloxone.

If you Have Any Questions Call Us At 203-287-3031
