4 BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY ANNUAL SECURITY AND FIRE SAFETY REPORT At Bucknell University, campus safety and security are shared responsibilities. Many departments are dedicated to making the campus a safer place to live and work. The University s Annual Security and Fire Safety Report provides information concerning safety and security at the University. All members of the University community are encouraged to use this report as a guide for safe practices on and off campus. ANNUAL SECURITY REPORT Policy On Reporting The Annual Disclosure Of Crime Statistics The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, 20 U.S.C. 1092(f) (the Clery Act ), is a federal law that requires colleges and universities that receive federal financial assistance to disclose annually certain information about campus crime and safety and security policies. This Annual Security and Fire Safety Report contains crime and fire statistics for the three previous calendar years and information on safety and security, crime prevention, and campus law enforcement. The University s Clery Act Compliance Officer and the Department of Public Safety prepare and distribute this report. They receive cooperation from other University departments, including the Division of Student Affairs, Athletics & Recreation Services, the Office of Global and Off-Campus Education, the Office of the General Counsel, the Office of the Provost, Admissions, Environmental Health and Safety, Human Resources, and Facilities, and outside law enforcement agencies. The crime statistics contained in this report include statistics for Clery Act crimes (identified in the Crime Information Section) that were identified by or reported to the Department of Public Safety, designated Campus Security Authorities (including, for example, athletic coaches, deans, advisers to student clubs and organizations, and resident advisers), or local law enforcement agencies. A written request for Clery Act crime statistics is made annually to all Campus Security Authorities. The Department of Public Safety and the Compliance Officer request crime statistics from law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction over non-campus buildings and properties that are owned or controlled by the University, used in direct support of its educational purposes, and frequently used by students. This report also contains statistics for weapons, drug, and liquor law violations that resulted in arrest or referral to a University official who initiated a disciplinary action (provided a record was kept and the proceeding may have resulted in the imposition of a sanction). The Student Conduct Administrator and the Associate Vice President for Human Resources report disciplinary referral statistics to the Department of Public Safety. The University s Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is published by October 1 each year. The report is available online at Copies of this report may also be obtained from the Department of Public Safety at 580 Snake Road, Lewisburg, PA 17837, or by calling (570) All enrolled students, faculty and staff are notified by of the report s availability prior to October 1. Prospective faculty and staff may obtain a copy of the report from Human Resources, Cooley Hall, Lewisburg, PA 17837, or by calling (570) A link to this report is also available on the Jobs at Bucknell web page at The University mails a postcard to all applicants for admission, notifying the prospective students of the availability of the report, a description of its contents, and the opportunity to request a copy. In compliance with the Clery Act, the University annually discloses crime and fire statistics to the United States Department of Education. Additional information about safety and security is available online at SAFETY, SECURITY & FIRE REPORT 1

5 The Department Of Public Safety The Bucknell University Department of Public Safety maintains police patrols on and around campus by foot, bicycle and/or motor vehicle 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. All Department of Public Safety officers have complete police authority to apprehend and arrest anyone involved in illegal acts on campus or in areas immediately adjacent to the campus. Officers derive their police powers from 22 Pa. Con. Stat Violations of law by students, faculty, staff or others may result in the filing of criminal charges with the Magisterial District Judge in the Union County Courthouse. Student, faculty and staff misconduct (whether violations of law or University policy and whether occurring on or off campus) may also be referred for internal disciplinary action. The Chief of the Department of Public Safety serves as the University s law enforcement liaison with local, state and federal law enforcement officials and emergency management agencies. The Chief of Public Safety also serves as a member of the neighborhood town-gown committee. The Department of Public Safety works closely with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies as circumstances demand. Leaders of the Department of Public Safety and the Buffalo Valley Regional Police Department meet on both a formal and informal basis. The officers of these agencies communicate regularly regarding incidents that occur in and around the campus area. There is no written memorandum of understanding between the Department of Public Safety and the Buffalo Valley Regional Police Department. The Department of Public Safety is not aware of any off-campus buildings or properties owned or controlled by any officiallyrecognized student organizations. How To Report A Crime The University encourages the accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes to the Department of Public Safety at (570) (emergencies) or (570) (non-emergencies) or, for incidents that occur off-campus, to Buffalo Valley Regional Police at 911 (emergencies) or (570) (non-emergencies). Individuals may call the Department of Public Safety on campus phones by dialing x71111 (emergency) or x73333 (nonemergency) or by pressing the red button on the Blue Light Emergency Phones equipped with red buttons. Reports may also be made in person or in writing to the Department of Public Safety at 580 Snake Road, Lewisburg, PA 17837, or Alleged violations of the University s Sex Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence & Stalking Policy may be reported to the Title IX Coordinator at (570) If the alleged offender is a faculty or staff member, incidents may also be reported to Human Resources at (570) Other bias-related violations of University policy may be reported to a resident adviser, the Associate Provost for Diversity or the Assistant Dean of Students for Diversity or using the online Bias Response Form at In the case of an emergency, please contact the Department of Public Safety or local police. For the purpose of making timely warnings and the annual statistical disclosure, the University prefers that all crimes be reported in the manner described above. 2 BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

6 Confidential Reporting The University offers several ways to report criminal activity while preserving privacy. Victims who do not wish to pursue campus disciplinary or criminal action, but who wish to document the details of an incident with the University, may file a report with the Department of Public Safety and request that their names be withheld from the report. Crimes may be reported anonymously using the Anonymous Tip Form at Individuals may also report Sexual Misconduct (which includes sexual assault, non-consensual fondling, non-consensual touching, sexual exploitation, and sexual harassment), Relationship Violence (which includes dating and domestic violence) and stalking to the Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX Coordinator will protect the privacy and confidentiality of the individuals involved in any report to the extent appropriate and allowed by law. The Title IX Coordinator will evaluate any request for confidentiality in the context of the University s responsibility to provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment to all members of its community. The amount of information detailing the alleged incident or identifying the alleged individual(s) responsible will determine the University s ability to respond. All reports of Clery Act crimes (even those reported anonymously) are counted and disclosed in the University s annual crime statistics, as appropriate. The University does not have written procedures requiring professional and pastoral counselors (who are exempt under federal law from the requirement to report crime statistics) to inform individuals they are counseling of procedures to report crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics. It is standard practice, however, for the University s professional and pastoral counselors to discuss with their clients the various options (including anonymous reporting) for reporting criminal incidents. Timely Warnings When the Department of Public Safety identifies or receives a report of a crime, occurring either on or off campus, that in the judgment of the Chief of the Department of Public Safety (in consultation with the Dean of Students and General Counsel) constitutes a serious or continuing threat to the campus community, the Department of Public Safety issues a campus-wide timely warning. The Department of Public Safety notifies the President s Office when a timely warning is issued. The timely warning is provided to students and employees in a manner that is timely, withholds as confidential the names and other identifying information of victims, and will aid in the prevention of similar crimes. The timely warning is issued through the University s system to all students, faculty and staff. Campus-wide notifications are labeled with TIMELY WARNING in the subject line. The Department of Public Safety also sends text alerts to all students, faculty and staff who have provided cell phone information for this purpose. All students must provide a cell phone number or indicate that they do not wish to provide one before they can register for classes. Faculty and staff are encouraged, but not required, to provide cell phone information for text alerts and emergency notifications. Individuals may add or update this information on my.bucknell.edu/emergencynotification. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to read these alerts as soon as they receive them. Depending on the particular circumstances of the incident, an alert may also be posted on the Department of Public Safety s webpage at edu/publicsafety and/or on its Facebook and Twitter pages. Timely warnings will often ask members of the University community for their help in gathering information about an incident or in identifying those responsible. Individuals are encouraged to contact the Department of Public Safety by calling or in-person at the Department of Public Safety office located at 580 Snake Road, Lewisburg, PA If there is an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on campus, the University will follow its emergency notification procedures. Campus Security Authorities are instructed to report crimes promptly so that the University may determine if a timely warning is warranted. Emergency Notifications The Department of Public Safety encourages all members of the University community to promptly report emergencies and dangerous situations by calling (570) Upon receiving a report, the Department of Public Safety immediately investigates and responds to the situation. If the investigation confirms the existence of a significant emergency or dangerous situation that presents an immediate threat to the health or safety of students, faculty or staff on campus, the Department of Public Safety, taking into account the safety of the campus community, determines what information to release about the situation and immediately begins the notification 2015 SAFETY, SECURITY & FIRE REPORT 3

7 process. The only reason the Department of Public Safety would not immediately issue a notification for a confirmed emergency or dangerous situation is if (in the judgment the Chief of the Department of Public Safety) doing so would compromise efforts to assist a victim, contain the emergency, respond to the emergency, or otherwise mitigate the emergency. Upon confirmation, the Department of Public Safety immediately notifies the campus community or the appropriate segments of the community that may be affected by the situation. The entire campus community is notified when there is at least the potential that a very large segment of the community will be affected by a situation or when the situation threatens the operation of the campus as a whole. If the Department of Public Safety notifies only the segment of the campus community that may be affected by the situation, it continues to assess the situation and notifies additional segments of the campus community if and when the situation warrants such action. The Department of Public Safety determines the content of the notification and initiates the notification system with an initial alert. Messages can be initiated by any member of the Department of Public Safety upon verification of the situation. Thereafter, a subset of the University s Operations Management Group (which may include the President of the University, the Provost, the General Counsel, the Vice President of Communications, and the Dean of Students) and the Chief of the Department of Public Safety determine how much additional information is appropriate to disseminate at different points in time. The University maintains various systems for communicating information quickly to the University community. Some or all of these methods of communication may be activated in the event of an emergency or dangerous situation. The University notifies the campus community (or the appropriate segments of the campus community that are affected) through the University s system. notifications are labeled with BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY ALERT in the subject line. The Department of Public Safety also sends text alerts to all students, faculty and staff who have provided cell phone information for this purpose. All students must provide a cell phone number or indicate that they do not wish to provide one before they can register for classes. Faculty and staff are encouraged, but not required, to provide cell phone information for text alerts and emergency notifications. Individuals may add or update this information at Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to read these notifications as soon as they receive them. Depending on the particular circumstances of the incident, an emergency notification may also be posted on the Department of Public Safety s webpage at and/or on its Facebook and Twitter pages. The University also maintains a Siren and Public Address system that can be used to send campus-wide emergency notifications. The system is comprised of two (2) speakers that transmit audio emergency messages and alert tones to the outdoor campus environment. If the Department of Public Safety and/or the University s Operations Management Group determine that it is appropriate and necessary to inform individuals and/or organizations outside of the campus community of the situation, the Department of Public Safety notifies the Union County Communications Center. In the event of an emergency, all are encouraged to check the University s emergency management website, edu/emergency. Emergency Response And Evacuation Procedures If the Department of Public Safety determines that a building or area must be evacuated, the Department of Public Safety dispatcher contacts appropriate personnel to advise them of the nature of the evacuation. The Department of Public Safety initiates and supervises the evacuation with the cooperation of the Facilities Department, the Events Management Office, and/ or the Division of Student Affairs. When an evacuation alarm sounds, individuals should evacuate the building calmly and quietly to a distance of at least 500 feet from the building and out of the way of emergency personnel. Individuals should not use the elevators because they may become inoperative. If possible, abled individuals should assist disabled individuals in exiting the building or to the closest stairwell (and should notify Department of Public Safety officers of the disabled person s location). Disabled individuals who cannot use stairs should proceed to the closest stairwell and wait until help arrives. Individuals should not return to the building until instructed to do so by Department of Public Safety officers or authorized personnel. Emergency Response Procedures: Flood Or Severe Weather Emergency In the event of a flood or weather emergency on or near campus, the Department of Public Safety receives advance notification from the Union County Communications Center as to the extent and nature of the impending flood or weather emergency. Instructions for preparations and/or evacuations are relayed from the Union County Emergency Management Agency to the campus community through the Department of Public Safety. 4 BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

8 The University s Events Management Office (in cooperation with the Department of Public Safety) sends out an to all students, faculty, and staff. The alert includes the nature of the emergency and instructions for preparation and/ or evacuation if necessary. Procedures to Test Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures All of the University s alerting methods are tested at least bi-annually to ensure all faculty, staff and students are familiar with emergency alerts and what their individual roles are during an actual situation. A fire and evacuation drill is coordinated by the Department of Public Safety each semester in each residential facility (except Bucknell West) and academic building. The Department of Public Safety does not tell individuals in advance about the designated locations for long-term evacuations because those decisions are affected by time of day, location of the building being evacuated, the availability of the various designated emergency gathering locations on campus, and other factors such as the location and nature of the threat. The purpose of evacuation drills is to prepare building occupants for an organized evacuation in case of an emergency. In addition to educating occupants of each building about evacuation procedures during the drills, the process also provides the Department of Public Safety with an opportunity to test the operation of fire alarm system components. Evacuation drills are monitored by the Department of Public Safety to evaluate egress and behavioral patterns. Reports are prepared by the Department of Public Safety and identify deficient equipment so that repairs can be made immediately. Recommendations for improvements are also submitted to the appropriate departments for consideration. The Resident Advisers are trained in these procedures and act as an ongoing resource for students living in residential facilities. The Department of Public Safety documents each test it conducts, including a description of the test, the date the test was held, the time the test started and ended, and whether the test was announced or unannounced. The Department of Public Safety publicizes the University s emergency response and evacuation procedures in an notification in conjunction with at least one regularly scheduled test of the University s emergency plans and capabilities. Daily Crime And Fire Log In addition to disclosing crime and fire statistics to the US Department of Education and in its Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, the Department of Public Safety maintains a combined Daily Crime and Fire Log that includes all criminal incidents, alleged criminal incidents, and fire-related incidents that are reported to or identified by the Department of Public Safety. The Log includes the date the incident was reported, the date and time the incident occurred, the nature of the incident, the general location of the incident, and the disposition of the complaint, if known. The Department of Public Safety reserves the right to exclude certain reports or temporarily withhold information from the log under circumstances permitted by law. The Daily Crime and Fire Log for the most recent 60-day period is available for public inspection, upon request, during normal business hours at the Department Public Safety, 580 Snake Road, Lewisburg PA. The Daily Crime and Fire Log can also be found online at Portions of the Log that are older than 60 days will be made available within two business days of a request. A link to the Daily Crime and Fire Log is also published daily in the University s Message Center to the campus community. Security Of And Access To Facilities During business hours, the University (except housing facilities) is open to the public. During non-business hours, access to certain University buildings may be restricted. Some facilities have individual hours, which may vary at different times of the year. Examples are the Elaine Langone Center, the Kenneth G. Langone Athletics and Recreation Center, and University libraries. In these cases, the facilities will be secured according to schedules developed by the department responsible for the facility. All perimeter doors for student housing facilities (except Bucknell West) and other critical infrastructure doors are secured via an electronically controlled access system. The control system allows automatic locking and unlocking of doors. It also provides selected access through the use of the Bucknell OneCard, which is issued to University students, faculty and staff. Bucknell West housing is secured by a brass key system SECURITY & FIRE SAFETY REPORT 5

9 The Facilities Department maintains the buildings, grounds and utility systems for the campus. Security service needs (including, but not limited to, inoperable doors, burned out lights, malfunctioning smoke alarms, and broken windows) receive priority. Emergencies and after-hours safety issues are reported to the Department of Public Safety. The Department of Public Safety and Facilities routinely survey campus lighting and identify/report any deficiencies found, such as inadequate illumination and defective fixtures, to the appropriate personnel for corrective action. Residential Education staff make daily rounds of the facilities to check for maintenance problems that may pose a hazard to residents safety and security. Resident Advisers inform their residents in student housing to write all maintenance concerns on a work request form, typically located on the custodial closet of each residence hall floor (or, in the case of a special interest house or fraternity, on one of the custodial closets in the building). A custodial staff member reviews the form and either corrects the issue or submits a work order to Facilities through their supervisor. If a student reports a concern to the Housing Services Office, Housing Services staff will submit a work order to the Facilities Department. After normal business hours, emergencies and safety issues are reported to the Department of Public Safety, which will either call a Facilities staff member back to campus or submit a work order to Facilities. Preventing And Responding To Sexual Assault, Stalking, Dating Violence and Domestic Violence Training and Education The University provides information and training for students and employees to assist in the awareness of the University s response and resources for those who have experienced sexual assault, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence. These initiatives include the following: 1. A statement that the University prohibits sexual assault, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence; 2. The definition of sexual assault, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence under Pennsylvania law; the definition of consent under Pennsylvania law; 3. Procedures victims should follow if a crime of sexual assault, stalking, dating violence or domestic violence has occurred (including the importance of preserving evidence, how and to whom the alleged offense should be reported, options to notify law enforcement authorities, the option to be assisted by campus personnel in notifying authorities, and the option to decline to notify authorities); 4. Options for no-contact orders and orders of protection issued by local courts; 5. Information about how the University will protect confidentiality; and statements that a. The University will provide written notification about existing counseling, mental health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, visa and immigration assistance, and other services (both within the University and in the community) to victims and b. The University will provide i. written notification to victims about options for, and available assistance in, changing academic, living, transportation, and working situations if so requested and reasonably available, regardless of whether the victim chooses to report the crime to law enforcement authorities and ii. an explanation of the procedures for campus disciplinary action. In addition, the University informs students and employees that it will provide a written explanation of rights and options to students and employees who report offenses. c. The University will also inform students and employees that disciplinary proceedings will i. Include a prompt, fair, and impartial process from the initial investigation to the final result, ii. Be conducted by officials who at a minimum receive annual training on issues related to sexual assault, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence and how to conduct a investigation and hearing process that protects the safety of victims and promotes accountability, iii. Provide the victim and alleged offender with the same opportunity to have others present, including the opportunity to be accompanied to any related meeting or proceeding by an adviser of their choice and iv. Simultaneously notify, in writing, both parties of the result of any disciplinary proceeding, procedures for appeal, any change to the result, and when the result becomes final. Students and employees will be 6 BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

10 informed that the University will not limit the choice of adviser or presence in any meeting or disciplinary proceeding, except that the University has established restrictions regarding the extent to which the adviser may participate in the proceedings. At the beginning of each academic year, all incoming students are required to participate in a peer-led bystander intervention education program that provides safe and positive options that may be carried out by an individual or individuals to prevent harm or intervene when there is a risk of sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, or domestic violence. The University also provides ongoing bystander educational programming, including follow-up peer-led bystander education, peer-led bystander ally training for sorority women and fraternity men, and peer-led dating violence and stalking education. The University annually offers a variety awareness events and programs, including guest presentations, theater-based programs, Take Back the Night and the Clothesline Project. The Department of Public Safety regularly offers a 12-hour Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) class and a 2-hour Self- Defense Awareness Familiarization Exchange (S.A.F.E.) class. These educational awareness, crime-victim prevention programs provide individuals with information that may reduce their risk of exposure to violence and introduce them to the physical aspects of self-defense. Reporting And Confidentiality Victims are encouraged to report sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking to the University and have several options for doing so. In an emergency, victims and others are encouraged to call (570) (Department of Public Safety) or 911 (Union County Emergency Services). For non-emergencies, individuals may report incidents to the Department of Public Safety at (570) and/or the Title IX Coordinator at (570) Incidents involving University faculty or staff members may also be reported to Human Resources at (570) The Department of Public Safety and Human Resources will inform the Title IX Coordinator of the report. University personnel will assist the victim in notifying authorities if the victim so requests. It is important that the incident be reported immediately so that evidence may be preserved. Victims also have the option to decline to notify law enforcement. If a University faculty or staff member becomes aware of an alleged incident of Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence or stalking committed against a student, they must promptly report that information to the Title IX Coordinator, unless that individual is authorized or required by law to keep that information confidential by virtue of their professional role (Advocates, psychological counselors, or clergy, for example). The Title IX Coordinator provides a confidential online reporting form for this purpose. Students also have the option to make anonymous reports to the Department of Public Safety using the anonymous tip form at The amount of information detailing the alleged incident or identifying the alleged individual(s) responsible will determine the University s ability to respond. The University will seek to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the individuals involved in any report of alleged Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence or stalking to the extent appropriate and allowed by law. The Title IX Coordinator will evaluate any request for confidentiality in the context of the University s responsibility to provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment to all members of its community. The University will complete any publicly available record-keeping, including Clery Act reporting and disclosure, without the inclusion of identifying information about the victim. It will also maintain as confidential any interim measures or remedies provided to the victim to the extent that maintaining confidentiality will not impair its ability to provide the interim measures or remedies. The University will provide written notification to students and employees about existing counseling, mental health, victim advocacy, legal assistance, visa and immigration assistance, and other services, both within the University and in the community. The University will also provide written notification to victims about options for, and available assistance in, changing academic, living, transportation, and working situations if so requested and reasonably available, regardless of whether the victim chooses to report the crime to the Department of Public Safety or local law enforcement or pursue campus disciplinary action. When a student or employee reports to the University that the student or employee has been a victim of sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, or domestic violence, whether the alleged offense occurred on or off campus, the University will provide the student or employee a written explanation of the student s or employee s rights and options SECURITY & FIRE SAFETY REPORT 7

11 The University does not limit the time frame for reporting, although a delay in reporting may impact the University s ability to take certain actions. The University retains the authority to pursue disciplinary action against students who withdraw or are suspended from the University after an incident of sexual misconduct is alleged to have occurred. The University may withhold a student s diploma where a report of sexual misconduct is pending against the student. It may also, with Board of Trustee approval, revoke any degree awarded to an individual who is subsequently found responsible for prohibited conduct that occurred prior to the degree being awarded. As time passes, evidence may dissipate or become lost or unavailable, thereby making investigation, possible prosecution, disciplinary action, or the issuance of a protection from abuse order more difficult. If a victim chooses not to make a complaint regarding an incident, they should nevertheless consider speaking with the Department of Public Safety or other law enforcement to preserve evidence in the event they later decide to file charges. Evangelical Community Hospital s Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE nurses) are on call 24 hours a day to conduct sexual assault evidentiary examinations to collect and preserve evidence (generally within 96 hours of an incident). Ordinarily, when an evidentiary examination is performed, the hospital will contact local police to inform them that evidence was collected, but this does not mean that the victim has to proceed with criminal charges. Treatment to prevent certain sexually transmitted infections is available and is most effective when taken as soon as possible after possible exposure (within 72 hours). Treatment is also available for injuries and to prevent pregnancy. Medical treatment is available at Bucknell Student Health and Evangelical Community Hospital. The Advocates and the Department of Public Safety can arrange transportation to the hospital. Resources And Support Services The University recognizes that in instances of alleged Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence or stalking, community assistance is both necessary and helpful. Individuals are encouraged to access the support services identified below: Confidential Resources The Advocates (24 hours) For students who have experienced Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence or stalking. The Advocates are trained members of the campus community who provide information and support regarding the legal, medical, counseling, academic and housing options a student may have following an incident of Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence or stalking. They help to facilitate referrals, accompany students to medical treatment, answer questions about legal and judicial options, and help to ensure appropriate follow-up and support. The Advocates also assist students in connecting with resources that can help minimize the impact an incident may have on one s academic career. Counseling & Student Development Center (CSDC) (business hours and after hours crisis service) For students CSDC provides individual and group counseling, psychiatric consultation, crisis intervention, consultation and outreach programming. Services are available for all students free of charge. Bucknell Student Health (business hours) Bucknell Student Health provides medical attention that includes treatment of any physical injuries and treatment to prevent pregnancy and certain sexually transmitted infections (generally most effective within 72 hours). Bucknell University Chaplains & Religious Life (business hours) The University Chaplain, the Chaplain for the Catholic Community, and the Jewish Chaplain are available to discuss religious, spiritual, and personal issues. Transitions (24 hours) Transitions is a local crisis center that provides confidential counseling services, advocacy, emergency shelter, and relocation assistance to survivors of sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, and other serious offenses. Transitions also assists victims in obtaining orders of protection from local courts. 8 BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

12 Evangelical Community Hospital Evangelical Community Hospital s Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE nurses) are on call 24 hours a day to conduct sexual assault evidentiary examinations to collect and preserve evidence (generally within 96 hours of an incident). Ordinarily, when an evidentiary examination is performed, the hospital will contact local police to inform them that evidence was collected, but this does not mean that one has to proceed with criminal charges. Treatment is also available to prevent pregnancy and certain sexually transmitted infections (generally within 72 hours of an incident) and for injuries. Additional Resources Title IX Coordinator: Cooley Hall, Bucknell University Lewisburg, PA bucknell.edu/titleix The University s Title IX Coordinator is responsible for overseeing all reports of Sexual Misconduct Relationship Violence and stalking and identifying and addressing any patterns or systemic problems that arise during review of such reports. Allegations of Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence and stalking may be reported directly to the Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX Coordinator can answer questions and provide information concerning this Policy, available resources and support services, and external criminal and legal options. The Title IX Coordinator may issue no-contact orders. The Dean of Students may arrange other accommodations in consultation with the Title IX Coordinator. An Alleged Victim who wishes to initiate disciplinary proceedings should submit a complaint to the Title IX Coordinator.

13 Disciplinary Proceedings to Resolve Allegations of Sexual Assault, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence and Stalking The University s disciplinary proceedings provide a prompt, fair, and impartial process from the initial investigation to the final result. The proceedings are conducted by officials who (i) receive at least annual training on issues related to sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, and domestic violence and on how to conduct an investigation and hearing process that protects the safety of victims and promotes accountability and (ii) do not have a conflict of interest or bias for or against the victim or alleged offender. The proceedings will provide the victim and alleged offender with the same opportunity to have others present, including the opportunity to be accompanied to any related meeting or proceeding by the adviser of their choice. The University does not limit the choice of adviser or presence in any meeting or disciplinary proceeding, except that it has established certain restrictions regarding the extent to which the adviser may participate in the proceedings. The University simultaneously notifies, in writing, both parties of the result of any disciplinary proceeding, procedures for appeal, any change to the result, and when the result becomes final. Disciplinary proceedings are completed within reasonably prompt time frames designated by each policy (student, faculty, staff). Time frames may be extended for good cause with written notice to the victim and alleged offender of the delay and the reason for the delay. Proceedings are conducted in a manner that is consistent with the University s policies and transparent to the victim and alleged offender, includes timely notice of meetings at which the victim or alleged offender, or both, may be present, and provides timely access to the victim, the alleged offender, and appropriate officials to any information that will be used during informal and formal disciplinary meetings and hearings. Following an allegation of sexual assault, stalking, dating violence or domestic violence, the Title IX Coordinator, Human Resources and/or the Dean of Students will take appropriate interim measures to protect the victim. These measures may include, but are not limited to, the imposition of a no-contact order and/or employment, transportation, residence, and academic modifications. The Dean of Students or designee may limit a student s access to certain University facilities or activities pending resolution of the matter. The Dean of Students may impose an interim suspension pending the resolution of an alleged violation when the Dean determines, in the Dean s sole discretion, that it is necessary in order to protect the safety and well-being of members of the Bucknell community. Complaints against Students Procedures for resolving complaints against students are outlined in the Bucknell University Sex Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence & Stalking Policy & Procedures for Resolving Complaints Against Students. The Policy can be found in the Student Handbook or obtained from the Department of Public Safety, the Title IX Coordinator, Human Resources, or the Women s Resource Center. The policy may also be found on the University s webpages, edu/sexualmisconduct and To initiate an Investigation, the Complainant must submit a written statement to the Title IX Coordinator that contains: The name of the alleged offender (the Respondent ), if known, A description of the alleged violation, and The date, approximate time, and location of the alleged violation, if known. The Title IX Coordinator provides the Complainant with a copy of the Sexual Misconduct & Relationship Violence Policy, reviews procedures, and informs the Complainant of available resources, support services, and options, including the option to be assisted by an adviser of choice. The Title IX Coordinator meets with the Respondent to notify the Respondent that a Complaint has been filed and will be investigated. The Title IX Coordinator provides the Respondent with a copy of the Policy, reviews procedures, and informs the Respondent of available resources, support services and options, including the option to be assisted by an Adviser of choice. After a complaint is filed, the investigator conducts an Investigation and prepares a Student Conduct Investigative Report, which may be accompanied by supporting documentation or items (for example, statements or photographs). The investigator moves forward with a hearing if sufficient information of a violation of the Policy is found. If the investigator determines to hold a hearing, the investigator meets with each party and reviews the alleged violations that will be investigated in a hearing and explains hearing procedures. 10 BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

14 The Hearing Panel Chair reviews the Student Conduct Investigative Report with the investigator and determines which witnesses, documentation, and other information will be called or presented at the hearing. No later than five (5) calendar days prior to the hearing, the investigator provides the parties with a list of all witnesses, documentation, and other information that will be presented at the hearing. The investigator also provides the parties with a copy of the Student Conduct Investigative Report. The investigator may redact the Student Conduct Investigative Report to the extent necessary to comply with the law. No later than three (3) calendar days prior to the hearing, the parties may request that additional witnesses, supporting documentation, or other information be presented at the hearing. The request must be in writing, submitted to the investigator, and include a brief description of why the information is relevant to the determination of responsibility. The parties may not introduce witnesses, documentation, or other information at the hearing that were not provided to the Investigator by this deadline. Exceptions may be made at the sole discretion of the Hearing Panel Chair if the identity of the witness or the documentation or other information was not available to the party as of this deadline or for other extenuating circumstances. The Hearing Panel Chair has sole discretion to determine whether to allow the additional witnesses, documentation, or other information to be presented at the hearing. Prior to the hearing, the investigator offers to meet with each party to review hearing procedures, the alleged violation(s), and the list of witnesses and other information that will be presented at the hearing. The investigator forwards a copy of the alleged violation(s), the Student Conduct Investigative Report, the list of witnesses, witness statements, and any other information that will be presented at the hearing to the Hearing Panel in advance of the hearing. The Hearing Panel finds the Respondent responsible if a preponderance of the evidence indicates that the Respondent violated the Policy. This means the Hearing Panel must determine whether it is more likely than not, based on the information presented at the hearing, that the Respondent is responsible. The Hearing Panel must reach a decision on responsibility by majority vote. If the Hearing Panel finds the Respondent responsible, it immediately deliberates sanctions. Sanctions for students who are found responsible include a letter of censure, disciplinary probation, deferred suspension, suspension, expulsion, and revocation of degree. At the recommendation of the Hearing Panel, students found responsible may also be subject to an accountability plan developed by the Dean of Students. Both the Respondent and the Complainant have the option to appeal. Both students are simultaneously notified in writing of the outcome of a disciplinary hearing as required by law. Complaints against Faculty and Staff Members Complaints against faculty or staff members should be submitted to the Title IX Coordinator or Human Resources. Procedures for resolving complaints against staff members are outlined in the Bucknell University Sex Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence & Stalking Policy & Procedures for Resolving Complaints Against Staff Members. Procedures for resolving complaints against faculty members are outlined in the Faculty Handbook. Notification Of Results Of Disciplinary Hearings The University will, upon written request, disclose to the alleged victim of a crime of violence or nonforcible sex offense the results of disciplinary proceedings conducted by the University against a student who is the alleged perpetrator. If the crime resulted in the victim s death, the University will disclose the results, upon written request, to the victim s next of kin. Sex Offender Registration Pennsylvania s Megan s Law, 21 Pa. C.S , requires the Pennsylvania State Police to create and maintain a registry of persons who have either been convicted of, entered a plea of guilty to, or adjudicated delinquent of certain sex offenses. Information provided by the State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained through the State s Megan s Law website at or by calling (866) Alcohol And Other Drugs The possession, use and sale of alcohol on the University s campus are governed by the University s alcohol policies (found in the Bucknell University Student Handbook), the Drug-Free Workplace/Campus Community Policy (found in the Bucknell University Staff and Faculty Handbooks) and Pennsylvania law. The enforcement of alcohol laws and policies on campus is the 2015 SECURITY & FIRE SAFETY REPORT 11
