The Ad hoc policy committee met on Thursday March 25,2004 @4PM in the Conference Rm. In Connell Hall


Present: Gretchen Bauman, Lin Brummels, Jamie Paulson, Karen Walker, and Michelle Meyer


The committee discussed the changes to the policy thus far. The new policy will be identified as the Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct Policy. It will include policy information regarding relationship violence, stalking, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. The policy primarily provides a mission statement, the intent of the policy and the definitions of terms.

The next step is the procedures, the operating guidelines for the policy. It was decides that each of the specific areas identified above should have their own set of operating guidelines. Including what the victim and accused can expect, levels of confidentiality related to reporting, what will be done by various individuals in the campus community if someone discloses to them, victim rights, sanctions attached to specific behaviors or conduct and resources. Michelle will continue working on this next portion of the policy revision process.


Additional policy issues mentioned were: the conflict between section W of the Student Conduct Regulations and section B 2 of the Rights of Students Subject to Disciplinary Hearing - regarding student attendance at committee hearings. Clarification of this conflict will be sought. In addition Gretchen Bauman will check into the lack of knowledge and clear designation as to who our Title IX Coordinator is.

The understanding of the implications of Title IX and relationship violence, and sexual assault as a civil rights violation is increasingly important at institutions of higher education.


There was also discussion of the due date (5/15/2004) to submit revisions for the student handbook for the 2004-2005 academic year. It was felt that even if the revisions are not completed for inclusion in the handbook the information about the revisions will be made available to the campus community in a variety of ways.


Michelle is soliciting feedback, suggestions, questions, and concerns as you review the policy so far. Please e-mail or call.

Our next meeting will be set for the end of April.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:35 PM


Respectfully submitted,



Ron Vick, MA, LPC
