Report Relationship or Interpersonal Violence, or Sexual Misconduct (Title IX)

Interpersonal violence includes dating violence, domestic violence, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or stalking behaviors. The Title IX Team works to address interpersonal violence concerns.

Drug & Alcohol Abuse Prevention

Goldey-Beacom College is an educational institution committed to maintaining an environment that allows students to benefit fully from the learning experience and to fully understand the negative consequences of the illicit use of alcohol and drugs in their lives. All students, staff, and faculty are part of this learning environment and need to understand the College’s expectations regarding alcohol and drug use. As part of this commitment, we have established the Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program (DAAPP) policy. This document serves as a guide for understanding our approach to preventing substance abuse within our community and upholding the well-being of our Bolt family.

Questions about this DAAPP should be directed to Molly Lowry, Community Standards & Clery Coordinator, via email or telephone, (302) 225-6286.

Campus Crime Statistics

The Annual Security & Fire Safety Report (ASFSR) contains information on campus security as well as personal and fire safety, including crime-reporting policies and other important campus security matters. It also contains statistics for the three previous calendar years on reported crimes that occurred on campus. A hard copy of the ASFSR, which includes the Alcohol and Drug Policy, is available in the College’s Student Affairs Office.

Reports for the most recent reporting year are available no later than October 1 of each year. You may also review the most recent Fire Log or Crime Log (showing incidents for the previous 60 days) by contacting the Student Affairs Office and making an appointment during normal business hours. These documents are available for public inspection.
