Task Force on Safety, Responsibility, and Prevention
President Kington’s commitment to prevention of sexual misconduct and substance abuse required an examination and plan to improve how the college community prevents incidents of sexual misconduct alongside a review of how we respond to allegations and acts of sexual misconduct. To address the first, President Kington appointed a Task Force on Safety, Responsibility, and Prevention whose main purpose is to propose a concrete program for our campus to prevent sexual misconduct, alcohol abuse, and violence, all of which have been found to be tightly related. The members of the task force include:
Steve Briscoe, Director of Campus Safety & Security
Harriett Dickey-Chasins, Director of Student Health & Counseling Services & Lead Psychologist
Jennifer Jacobsen '95, Wellness Director
Kristin Lovig, Director of Human Resources
Thomas Neil '14, President – SGA
Opeyemi Awe '15, Vice President for Student Affairs – SGA
Tyler Smiley ’13.5, Grinnell Sexual Conduct MAP assistant
Samuel Huang ’13, Strategic Planning Assistant
Chris Ralston, Assistant Professor of Psychology
Sarah Anderson '98, Director of Interactive Communications
Deanna Shorb, Dean of Religious Life & Chaplain
Andrea Conner, Dean of Students
Autumn Wilke, Assistant Director of Residence Life and Orientation
This is a small group that will rely heavily on the community and an advisory committee to understand the issues surrounding prevention of sexual misconduct and substance abuse, to build on current prevention efforts, and to implement new programmatic initiatives. Jen Jacobsen '95, Wellness Director, will be devoting 25% of her time to working with the task force, Angela Voos, and the advisory committee to further develop our preventative programs.
This advisory committee informs the work of the Task Force on Safety, Responsibility, and Prevention and helps with education and prevention efforts. If you are interested in being a part of this advisory committee, please email Bailey Thompson.
