We employ a multi-pronged team approach to campus safety which includes the Student Code of Conduct, Behavioral Interventions, Public Safety and the CARE Team (Coordinated Assistance and Resource Education).
Any act which interferes with the learning process, rights of others, disrupts or impairs the normal functioning of the college, damages or destroys property, or impairs health or safety is grounds for disciplinary action. The Dean of Students Office, Campus Safety and Title IX Compliance work collaboratively to promote civility and Aims community standards.
The Coordinated Assistance and Resource Education (CARE) Team is designed to assist all members of the college community in responding to students in distress while providing critical campus and community resources. CARE services can be both formal and informal and may include outreach on behalf of a student to faculty or other campus partners, connecting students with appropriate campus or community resources, or simply checking in with a student to offer guidance and support, among other actions.
If a student has a complaint, issue, concern or problem with a college employee or department, another student or an instructional situation, the first step is for the student to attempt to visit with the individual or office in order to find a resolution.
If a student has attempted to resolve a situation or feels, they need support to resolve a situation they should complete the online MAAP report. Once a report has been submitted, the student will be contacted to set up a meeting with a MAAP Officer.
MAAP is charged with assisting students and resolving their issues informally.
*If working with and through MAAP does not lead to a resolution, the student will
be referred to another institutional process.

Students are held to standards of conduct relating to sexual harassment and sexual violence, as defined by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) under the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX). Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs or activities and protects the right of students to receive an education free from sexual harassment and sexual violence on and off campus.
