CHOOSING TO REPORT VIOLENCE INFORMATION

Chosing to report violence is a personal decision that only you can make. Some reasons people chose to report violence include:

  • Helping yourself recover
  • Regaining a sense of control
  • Holding the perpetrator/assailant/abuser responsible
  • Helping prevent violence from happening to others
  • Getting connected to support (though not required--support is available regardless of whether you report)

In addition to personal reasons for reporting, the College of St. Scholastica is also governed by state and federal laws that may require staff and faculty to report incidents of violence of our campus community members. 

  • CSS Counseling & Health Services are CONFIDENTIAL resources. They are not required to report information to CSS.
  • CSS GEVA Team Members are SEMI-CONFIDENTIAL resources. They are required to report statistical information but no personally identifiable information.
  • All other College EMPLOYEES are REQUIRED REPORTERS. They are required to report everything they know of an incident to the Title IX Coordinator Team

To report issues of violence of members of the CSS community, please visit the Online Report form.  

If you have experienced any type of gender based violence, including sexual assault, sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic/dating/intimate partner/relationship violence and/or stalking, resources and support are available to you.

The following pages give information regarding the College of St.Scholastica's policies, processes, and reporting options related to these types of violence. Additionally, these pages will provide information to aid in understanding your options regarding reporting, resources, and support. The College of St. Scholastica has a GEVA Team which can aid you in understanding your options.
