Annual Campus Security Report (Jeanne Clery Act)
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is the landmark federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, which requires colleges and university across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. The law is tied to an institution’s participation in federal student aid programs and it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. The Act is enforced by the United States Department of Education. A 1998 amendment formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshmen, who was raped and murdered in her campus residence hall in 1986. The backlash against unreported crimes on numerous campuses across the country led to the creation of this Act. The Annual Security Report contains information regarding campus security and personal safety including topics such as: crime prevention, fire safety, campus law enforcement authority, crime reporting policies, disciplinary procedures and other matters of importance related to security and safety on campus. They also contain information about crime statistics for the three (3) previous calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or occupied by Paier College; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to an accessible from our campus locations. The Clery Act (Jeanne Clery Act) – amended Title IX in 1990 and requires all publicly funded colleges and universities to share information about all types of crimes on campus, and their efforts to improve campus safety as well as inform the public of crime in or around campus. The Clery Act also requires schools to provide options to survivors of sexual misconduct so they may have the opportunity to succeeding their educations goals. Colleges must also assist survivors in notifying local law enforcement in a safe and empowered manner. Finally, institutions of higher education must provide specific rights to both the survivor and the accused through the disciplinary process

Title IX Resources 

What is Title IX?

Title IX (1972) is a federal (national) law that serves as a powerful tool for combating campus violence. The law requires colleges receiving federal funding to combat gender-based violence and harassment and respond to survivors’ needs in order to ensure that all students have equal access to education. Any sexual violence or physical abuse, as defined by Connecticut law, whether committed by an employee, student, or member of the public, occurring on college-owned or controlled property, at college-sponsored or supervised functions, or related to or arising from college attendance or activity is a violation of District policies and regulations, and is subject to all applicable punishment, including criminal and/or civil prosecution and employee or student discipline procedures. No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Resources Link: https://atixa.org/2020-regulations-requirement-posting-of-training-materials/

 

Definitions of Title IX Violations:

• Gender Discrimination

• Gender Discrimination is defined as the following by Title IX:

• Discrimination or harassment based upon one’s gender (sex)

• Unfair treatment, attitudes, or behaviors towards an individual based upon their gender (sex)

• Gender identity discrimination as covered by Title VII

• Sexism, sexist attitudes, and sex stereotyping

• Disproportionate athletic programs or activities offered to all genders in relationship to the College’s enrollment 

In light of the COVID-19 related transition to alternative methods of instruction at Paier College, the Administration provides the following guidance and resources:

If you have a complaint of discrimination based on sex, race, color, or national origin, please contact the following:

Title IX Education For Students

One of the most important things you can do to help stop sexual violence (rape, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, etc.) is to become educated about it. The topics below provide a range of information on types of sexual violence and how you can help prevent it.


Consent—what is it and why is it important

Consent is an agreement between two people and is necessary to make sure that sexual activity is not against a person’s will. Consent can be ambiguous at times and is an important topic that needs to be addressed with direct, clear, and open communication. When thinking about consent, please keep the following in mind:

BOTH PARTNERS NEED TO BE FULLY AWARE: Alcohol and/or drugs interfere with the ability of a person to make proper decisions, including whether or not to be sexually active. The more intoxicated an individual is, the less consent they are able to consciously give.

BOTH PARTNERS MUST BE FREE TO STOP AT ANYTIME: Coercion must NEVER be used in any form during the sexual encounter. Both partners are free to stop at any time, even if they agreed to continue the actions initially. Coercion, even coercion done with factors such as using body size, threats of physical/emotional harm, or the use of illegal substances, must never be used to prevent a partner from stopping the encounter.

BOTH PARTNERS MUST COMMUNICATE CLEARLY: Permission to continue the encounter and/or move to the next level of intimacy should be conveyed clearly and neither partner should ever assume that consent is given. Remember, just because a person agreed to kiss or fondle does NOT mean that s/he is agreeing to a full sexual encounter. CONSENT IS NOT THE ABSENCE OF THE WORD “NO.”

BOTH PARTNERS ACT IN A SINCERE MANNER: When communicating your desire it is important to be clear that you are giving consent to the actions(s). Both partners must be honest and open during the encounter.

IMPORTANT: It is important to remember to ask for consent to ALL levels of intimacy in the encounter. As you progress to each new step of the encounter, it is important to ask for consent, ie. “Is it ok if I kiss you?”, “Is it ok if I remove your shirt?” , etc.

NEVER assume that consent for all actions is given because of consent to one action

How You Can Help


Can I really make a difference?

Yes, absolutely! Getting involved can help prevent sexual assault in a culture that too often inadvertently supports it. By doing something very simple (read below), you could actually be preventing a lot of damage in people’s lives.

How can I help in the prevention efforts?

  • Be aware of language and speak up if someone is putting women down.
  • Share information that you know on sexual assault prevention.
  • Offer to drive your friend(s) home from a party.
  • Accompany your female friends to parties.
  • Remind your friends to hold their drink at all times. Make sure that they open and/or pour their own drinks.
  • Sponsor programs on sexual assault awareness and prevention.

What can I do if I see something happening that can lead to trouble?

  • Take one person aside and distract them .
  • Distract the couple in order to diffuse the situation.
  • Offer to call a cab so one person can leave.
  • Knock on the door, or open the door, if you suspect a problem.
  • Directly ask what is going on and is everything okay.
  • Shout something to draw attention to the situation. For example, you can say ”Hey, what are you doing? Leave her alone!”

I feel uncomfortable doing these things.

For most of us it does feel uncomfortable, and it does take courage to speak up and intervene. But all it takes is one person at a time to help stop the violence. You can make a difference in someone’s life.

How to Protect Yourself Online


Do not share personal information in public spaces anywhere online, nor give it to strangers, including in e-mail or chat rooms. Do not use your real name or nickname as your screen name or user ID. Pick a name that is gender- and age-neutral. And do not post personal information as part of any user profiles.

We would prefer that you never meet with someone that you have met online, however if you do, you must be extremely cautious. If you choose to meet never give anyone your address, and do not have them pick you up. Meet in a public place and take along a friend.

Make sure that your ISP and Internet Relay Chat (IRC) network have an acceptable use policy that prohibits cyberstalking. And if your network fails to respond to your complaints, consider switching to a provider that is more responsive to user complaints.

If a situation online becomes hostile, log off or surf elsewhere. If a situation places you in fear, contact campus security or your local law enforcement agency. There is help and support available on campus and off campus.

Be Smart with Your Online Presence

Just because an online app or website asks for information about you does not mean you have to provide all of it. Before you “accept” the agreement, read it and understand what you are authorizing them to access about you.

Do you REALLY feel comfortable with the online world knowing –

  • Your class schedule
  • Your hometown or address
  • Your phone number
  • All of your email addresses/messenger names
  • The names of your relatives

Your Password

  • Be smart when creating your password and NEVER share it.
  • Create a special and unique password that includes numbers and symbols.
  • Make sure the password does not include your name or numbers easily associated with you like your birth date.
  • Change your password regularly.

Your Privacy Settings

  • Take the time to review the privacy settings offered for any website or online community that you join.
  • Make sure you understand what privacy settings you can control, what they mean and how to control them.

Location, Location, Location

Many apps and website will ask for your location—but why is that and what is the risk with providing it? Listing your specific address can be risky—especially if it is viewable by anyone on the website. This can leave you open to identity theft, stalkers, unsolicited mailings, and more. Think about it before you post it!

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 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 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 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 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.
