Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
As we start the spring semester, I am hoping that the steep descent of omicron continues so we can enjoy in-person interactions and gatherings, promote individual and collective well-being, and benefit from a strong sense of community. There is no question that we all need relief, renewal, and (re)connection. In a separate message, I will share some of the plans we have for this semester that we hope will help with that effort.
Today, however, I am writing about the very serious problem of sexual misconduct at the College.
The Campus Safety Advisory Committee is a group of students, faculty, staff, and outside consultants that was charged with considering what constitutes safety and how best to ensure it on campus. I have been made aware that their final report will include, among other things, serious concerns about sexual misconduct. The committee will provide an update to the community next week.
