Get Help - Report a Concern

The College has many ways in which members of the campus community can report issues of concern or can seek help for themselves or others.

Unresolved Issue or Concern Previously Reported

File a report of: Unresolved Issue or Concern

Students may report concerns that they feel have not been efficiently or sufficiently addressed by Student Life or the College's designated processes after attempts to do so.

Ideas for improvement of procedures and processes are also welcome as are comments that will help to contribute to strengthening the delivery of services and support to students.

Submissions are anonymous unless identifying information is provided in the report. Note that when reports are anonymous, we are not able to follow up directly with students to resolve concerns, and we may not be able to resolve an issue if we do not have enough information to enable us to do so.

Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, or Retaliation

File a report of: Discrimination, Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and/or Retaliation

This form is designed to provide College of Wooster students, staff, faculty, visitors, vendors, or others with an online method to report specific information related to alleged incidents of discriminatory and bias-related harassment, sexual misconduct, or retaliation. If your safety is at risk, please call 9-1-1!

Submissions are anonymous unless identifying information is provided in the report. Reports go directly to the College's Title IX Coordinator, Angela Johnston (330-263-2141), for further action.

Hazing

File a report of: Hazing

Hazing is a crime in the State of Ohio. As defined by the law, hazing is “doing any act or coercing another, including the victim, to do any act of initiation into any student or other organization that causes or creates a substantial risk of causing mental or physical harm to any person.” Under Ohio law, legal action may be taken against any participant in hazing or against anyone at the College who knew or who reasonably should have known of the hazing and did not make an attempt to prevent it. Every member of the campus community is required to report any incidents of hazing or suspicions of hazing that come to their attention.

Beall Avenue Incident Report

File a report of a: Beall Avenue Incident

This form is designed to provide College of Wooster students, staff, and faculty with an online method to report specific information related to concerns of harassment and/or discrimination that occur on Beall Avenue or in the surrounding community. Information provided here can help Security and Protective Services as well as local law enforcement develop a profile and/or pattern of occurrence that may help to identify persons or vehicles that are engaged in discriminatory and/or harassing behavior. Submissions can be anonymous.

If your safety is at risk, please call 9-1-1! If possible, please contact Security and Protective Services immediately when the incident occurs at 330-263-2590.

Medical Assistance Amnesty for Alcohol/Drug Concerns

There are times when a student may consume alcohol to a level of extreme intoxication or a student may have a medical emergency following the use of drugs and/or alcohol. Signs of a medical emergency may include but are not limited to vomiting, loss of coordination or balance, loss of consciousness, and/or bouts of unresponsiveness. In those cases, the College considers the safety, health, and well-being of students paramount to documenting students for minor violations of the code of student conduct. To encourage students to seek help for students who are in need of medical assistance under those circumstances, the College will consider Medical Assistance Amnesty for both the student in need of medical assistance and the student(s) seeking help on behalf of that student.

If someone is in need of medical assistance, please contact Security and Protective Services at 330-263-2590 or call 9-1-1!
