Northland College expects that all members of the College community—students, faculty, staff, and friends—be able to pursue their work and education in a safe environment, free from sexual coercion, violence, or intimidation.
To achieve this we believe:
- Learning how to build healthy relationship skills is critical.
- It’s important to have organizational policies and practices that improve safety and the overall campus climate.
- Training student bystanders to intervene or speak up against violence is part of the solution.
- It’s healthy to address social norms and behavior with messages from community experts.
Northland College is committed to fostering a safe campus environment where sexual misconduct and violence are unacceptable, and where survivors who believe they were harmed by another person are provided support and avenues of redress as appropriate.
