SMART Mission Statement

The Sexual Misconduct and Assault Resource Team (SMART) is an inclusive group comprised of staff, faculty and students.

SMART is a resource team that:

  • serves as an advisor and consultant to the Wheaton community;
  • provides support and assistance identifying resources and reporting options on and off campus;
