The College respects each individual’s right to privacy and also encourages anyone dealing with an incident of sexual and gender-based misconduct to seek support, resources, and guidance on reporting options. All information shared with administration will be treated with great respect and confidence. For more information and resources, please visit the Sexual Assault Information page.
Members of the Wheaton Community are encouraged to report behavior that implicates the College’s Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct Policy. The College recognizes that some students may wish to anonymously report incidents of sexual and gender-based misconduct. The three options for students to anonymously report to the College are detailed below.
Anonymous Reporting Options
Submit a Sexual and Gender-based Misconduct Report Form – Students can use this form to submit reports to the Title IX Coordinator and may either identify themselves or remain anonymous. (Responsible Employees, including faculty, staff, and RAs, may also use this form but cannot submit it anonymously.)
- LiveSafe App – You can submit anonymous reports of sexual and gender-based misconduct via the LiveSafe app. Reports filed through LiveSafe will be sent anonymously to Wheaton Public Safety. Public Safety will share reports with the Title IX Coordinator.
- Silent Witness Form – You can submit a report anonymously to Public Safety by using this form. Public Safety will share reports with the Title IX Coordinator.
For protected, confidential guidance and support, please consider utilizing one of the following options available to the Wheaton community:
- Wheaton Counseling Center – 508-286-3905, open during business hours [M-F 8:30am – 4:30pm, closed 12:30-1:30pm for lunch]
- New Hope – local rape and domestic violence center based in Attleboro – 24 hour hotline: in-state calls contact: 800-323-4673; out-of-state calls contact: SafeLink at 877-785-2020 and ask to be transferred to New Hope’s Hotline
All faculty and staff members are designated as Responsible Employees and must communicate any disclosure received to the Director of Title IX Compliance within 24-48 hours. Therefore, faculty and staff are not permitted to remain anonymous when reporting any student disclosures of incidents of sexual and gender-based misconduct. However, they may use the same Sexual and Gender-based Misconduct Report Form linked above and include their name and contact information.
