Sexual Assault Information and Reporting Options

Sexual Assault Is an Affront to the Well-Being and Inherent Dignity of Our Community

Sexual assault harms individual victims and represents the possibility of ongoing harm to others. Ramapo College does not tolerate sex or gender discrimination, including sexual misconduct such as sexual harassment and sexual assault, stalking, and intimate partner violence. These behaviors are harmful to the well-being of our community members, the learning/working environment, and collegial relationships among our students, faculty, and staff.

Sexual Assault Prevention Is an Essential Component of Our Mission for Campus Safety

Ramapo College regularly schedules presentations and workshops concerning sexual assault under the auspices of the Center for Student Involvement (including the Women’s Center), the Center for Health and Counseling Services, and the Public Safety Department. Sexual assault is a topic also addressed during mandatory Welcome Week programs and the mandatory First Year College Seminar. Workshop topics include the necessity of clear communication for obtaining consent, the negative role played by alcohol and drug use and misuse, and tools for bystander intervention.

Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act

Ramapo College Provides an Annual Security Report with All Reported Campus Crimes Including Sexual Assault in Compliance with the Clery Act. The most recent annual security report can be viewed here.The Clery Act does not permit a college to release identifying information about a victim or perpetrator. Clery Act crime reports include only the date of the report, the date of the crime, and the general location.

All Clery reportable crimes are subject to “timely warning” requirements in which campus officials may notify the campus of a crime if officials believe the crime poses an ongoing imminent threat. In rare circumstances information that might personally identify students or other individuals may be disclosed only if the disclosure of this information is necessary to protect the health and safety of other students or individuals.
