Sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking can affect people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, ages, socio-economic statuses, and national origins.
We are committed to the goals of fairness and equity in all aspects of the educational enterprise, and to a learning and living environment where all members of the community feel safe and respected. Acts of sexual harassment, sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking are serious violations of our community values. The university will not tolerate sexual misconduct, or other forms of sexual violence or nonconsensual sexual activity, and will respond promptly and equitably to these incidents and to any student, staff, or faculty member who reports such incidents.
The Haven, as the sexual assault response center to the Colgate community, will provide confidential care, support, advocacy, and trauma-informed clinical services for survivors of sexual assault and other forms of violence. In collaboration with on- and off-campus partners, we will offer sexual assault awareness and prevention programming.
Services offered at Haven include individual counseling, group therapy, consultation, crisis intervention, with prevention and education outreach. Haven is located in the garden level of Curtis Hall.
We encourage all members of our campus community to seek support for and report all incidents of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct directly to the Title IX Officer, Marilyn D. Rugg
