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:

Andrea Conner, Dean of Students and Title IX Deputy for Case Management
Angela Voos, Chief of Staff, Vice President of Strategic Planning and Title IX Coordinator
Austin McKenney '15 
Autumn Wilke, Assistant Director of Residence Life and Orientation
Chris Ralston, Assistant Professor of Psychology
Deanna Shorb, Dean of Religious Life & Chaplain, Title IX Deputy for Confidential Response and Support
Iulia Iordache '15,  Vice President for Student Affairs – SGA
Jeff Pedersen, Head Football Coach, Assistant Track Coach, Assistant Professor of Physical Education, and Title IX Deputy for Athletics 
Jennifer Jacobsen '95, Wellness Director and Title IX Deputy for Prevention
Kaitlin Wilcox, Assistant Director of Analytic Support and Institutional Research
Kristin Lovig, Director of Human Resources
Mae Turley, Director of Annual Giving 
Opeyemi Awe '15, President - SGA
Sarah Anderson '98, Director of Interactive Communications
Sarah Barks, Assistant Director for Graduate and Professional School Advising 
Steve Briscoe, Director of Campus Safety & Security
Tess Cody, Crisis Intervention Services
Tyler Anderson '16

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.
