Walsh College Approach to Safety
Walsh College is dedicated to providing a clean, safe and comfortable environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors. In order to do this, we need everyone’s help. Members of the campus community must share in the responsibility for the safety and security of themselves, their neighbors and their belongings.

Campus Safety
Walsh College’s Facilities and Auxiliary Services staff is entrusted with security functions at the College. Our staff have no arrest powers, in the event of an emergency they are directed to coordinate with local law enforcement officials as necessary. These individuals are on campus all open hours and beyond and will enforce College security policies.

The department offers a variety of services that you may find useful:

  • Respond to fire alarms and severe weather alerts as well as to security situations in the building.
  • Provide escorts on request to cars after dark.
  • "Jump start" services for cars of students, faculty and staff.

In the event there is a life threatening situation or an actual crime, contact the Facilities staff who will assist you and then contact the local police. Any accident/incident on College property should be reported promptly to College staff and they will direct any further action.

Reporting a Crime
If you believe that you have been the victim of a crime on campus, report the situation immediately to the Walsh College staff (Evening Administrator, Program Administrator, Director or Assistant Director of Facilities). These individuals can be contacted through the receptionist in the front lobby or the Library or Facilities staff if they are not immediately visible. The staff member will give you immediate assistance as required. The staff member will contact the local police regarding the incident, but you as an individual will be required to file a police report. The staff member will also take information for an internal Incident/Accident report for our records and follow-up.

If follow-up action is required by the College at the request of an individual or the police, we will gladly cooperate. Any pertinent information or assistance requested will be given to the Police. Changes in internal procedures will be made if an additional effort will alleviate a problem.

We encourage any individual who believes that a crime has been committed to report this immediately to the staff and the Police.

Access to the Campus
Walsh College Campuses are open to students and the general public. Walsh College campuses do not have residence halls. The Administrative or Facilities Staff is present during operating hours to offer assistance and to meet any security needs. Buildings are monitored after hours by a security system.

The Michigan Public Offenders Registry

The Michigan State Police (MSP) has established a web site as the agency's official Internet source for Sex Offender Registration information. To obtain this information please refer to

Required to be distributed each year to current and potential students and to the Department of Education. This is accomplished through the Walsh College Web Site and the electronic posting to the Department of Education.  

Crime Prevention
In the interest of public safety we have gathered the following tips for general personal safety.

Walsh College encourages individuals to take whatever measures are necessary to prevent a crime from happening. In that vein, we offer the following suggestions:

  • do not walk alone after dark. Walk with a friend to your car or ask for an escort from the facilities staff.
  • Walk confidently, look around and be aware of your surroundings.
  • If you feel threatened in any way, contact a member of the Facilities Staff immediately.

If you sense a potential threat:

  • Try to get away from danger.
  • Yell or make as much noise as possible to attract attention.
  • Run toward a well lit and populated area.
  • Report any concern or problems to the Facilities staff and/or the local police.

Policies of Walsh College, Conduct of Students, Employees and Visitors
While on College property, a student, employee or visitor to Walsh College is in violation of Walsh College policy and subject to disciplinary action for the following offenses:

  1. Obstruction or disruption of teaching or other activities on campus.
  2. Physical abuse or unlawful detention any person.
  3. Theft or damage to property of the College or to property of a Walsh College employee, student or campus visitor.
  4. Unauthorized entry or use of College facilities and equipment.
  5. Illegal use or unauthorized possession or distribution of alcoholic beverages, narcotics, or dangerous drugs.
  6. Failure to comply with the directions of College officials, members of the faculty or other authorized individuals.
  7. Illegal or unauthorized possession or use of firearms, explosives, or other weapons, chemicals or fire extinguisher.
  8. Sexual harassment.

Violations of any of the above policies should be reported immediately to the staff according to the reporting procedures outlined previously.

Sexual Harassment Policy
The College views all forms of sexual harassment as reprehensible and therefore prohibited to all in connection with any College related activity. Sexual harassment is unacceptable conduct; it undermines the integrity of the employment/learning relationship, debilitates morale, and interferes with the work productivity of the organization and its learning environment. All staff, faculty and students have a responsibility to maintain high standards of integrity, impartiality, and conduct, both personal and official, thereby ensuring proper performance of the College’s business and the maintenance of public trust. Sexual harassment violates those standards and is an act of misconduct. Therefore, specific acts of such misconduct may be subject to disciplinary action or even dismissal.

What Constitutes Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  1. Influencing, offering to influence, or threatening the career, pay or job of another person or the educational program of a student in exchange for sexual favors.
  2. Deliberate or repeated offensive comments, gestures, physical contact of a sexual suggestive nature or creation of hostile work, work-related or instructional environment.

By way of further illustration, and not by way of limitation, any employee, student, faculty member, or continuing education instructor who uses implicit or explicit sexual behavior to control, influence, or affect the career, pay, or job of any employee or student, or to affect the instructional experience of any student is engaging in sexual harassment. Any employee, student, faculty, or continuing education instructor who makes deliberate or repeated offensive verbal comments, gestures, or physical contact of a sexual or suggestive nature in the work, work-related, or educational environment is also engaging in sexual harassment. For purposes of this paragraph, the term "student" includes any person enrolled in an academic course at Walsh College or any person attending a continuing education seminar or program.

Procedures for Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Harassment
An employee or student who is being or has been sexually harassed (or who believe that he or she is being or has been sexually harassed) by an administrative supervisor, co-worker, peer, student, faculty member, continuing education instructor or other employee at Walsh College should do the following:

  1. Clearly indicate to the offender that such behavior is offensive and that such behavior should cease immediately.
  2. Then choose one of the following options for reporting the incident:
    1. Report the incident
      1. to one’s immediate supervisor if the harassed person is an employee,
      2. to the appropriate department chairperson if the offending person is a faculty member,
      3. to the dean if the offending person is a faculty department chairperson,
      4. to the president of the College, if the offending person is the dean or some other officer of the College,
      5. to any member of the Board of Trustees if the offending person is the president of the College or a member of the Board of Trustees,
      6. to the director of continuing education if the offending act occurs in connection with a continuing education event,
      7. to the dean or any officer of the college if the offending party is a student or
      8. any harassing incident may be reported to the personnel office. Such report by the harassed party should be made within 30 days of the most recent harassing event. Upon such complaint, the person receiving the complaint shall immediately report the complaint to a non-offending College officer or
      9. Report the incident directly to a non-offending College officer within 30 days of the most recent harassing event.

The officer who first receives the complaint will then communicate that information to the other officers. An appropriate investigation will be undertaken of any complaint received under this procedure. All College personnel will be expected to keep all complaints and information in confidence, except to the extent released by an officer of the College.

Conclusion
Sexual harassment is unacceptable conduct and may lead to disciplinary action as outlined in policy 603 entitled Disciplinary Policy , if the offender is an employee. If the accused is another member of the College community, the complaint would be handled through the normal disciplinary process of the College.

Campus Sexual Assault Policy

Definitions:

What Is Sexual Assault?
Sexual assault is any physical sexual contact, as defined by Michigan law (Michigan Criminal Sexual Conduct Statute, Public Act No. 266 of 1974, as amended), to which you have not given consent. Unwanted sexual gestures or language are sexual harassment.

Sexual assault is not always violent.
While in most sexual assaults, men are the perpetrators and women the victims, that is not always the case. Most sexual assaults occur between people that know each other. These instances of sexual assault are known as acquaintance rape.

What Is Consent?
Consent is "willingly and verbally agreeing to specific sexual contact or conduct." This means the individuals involved must state clearly what they do and do not want to occur between them. Under Walsh College policy:

  • No one who is intoxicated can consent
  • No one who is under duress can consent; and
  • No one who has been threatened or pressured can consent.

Walsh College Policy
No member of the college community shall engage in sexual assault as defined by Michigan law. Walsh will treat any and/or all sexual assaults as a matter of the highest concern and seriousness.

Education
Walsh College can provide individual referrals for students and staff to be informed about rape awareness, acquaintance rape, and other sex offenses, including sexual assault through the Admissions and Advising Office.

Procedures for Reporting an Assault
If a sexual assault occurs on campus, notify the Facilities Staff or an officer of the college immediately. If the offense occurs when the campus is closed, notify the local police department. Any college employee can help you in making a report. They will inform the local police, and assist them in all ways possible.

In accepting reports of sexual assault, the Walsh College staff will:

  • Will treat you and your particular case with courtesy, sensitivity, dignity, understanding and professionalism.
  • Will make appropriate accommodations, if you feel more comfortable talking with a female or male individual.
  • Will assist you in arranging for any hospital treatment or other medical needs.
  • Will direct you to staff that can assist you in privately contacting counseling, safety, advising and other available resources, including any options provided to you under State and Federal law regarding mandatory testing of sexual assault suspects for communicable diseases and notification to the victim of the results of testing.
  • Will provide the full and prompt cooperation of the institution’s personnel with law enforcement authorities in obtaining, securing and maintaining evidence as may be necessary to the proof of criminal sexual assault in legal proceedings.
  • Will refer students to the appropriate agencies for counseling as required.

In the event that Walsh institutes disciplinary proceedings for sexual assault as outlined here, the victim shall have the same rights in the procedure as the accused, and the victim will be notified of the outcome of any disciplinary proceeding concerning the sexual assault.

The College will take any reasonable action as needed to prevent a victim from unnecessary or unwanted contact or proximity with the alleged assailant after a sexual assault has been reported to the appropriate campus personnel.

Procedures for Reporting Student Misconduct
Nonacademic misconduct, including sexual harassment and sexual assault, must be reported to the staff as outlined previously. If the police are required they will be informed and included in any follow-up. If internal measures are deemed necessary the Chief Administrative Officer will be informed to make a decision on immediate disciplinary action or possible referral to the Student Conduct and Appeals Committee. Any College employee, student or guest may institute charges against another individual regarding the violation of College regulations. The President of the College, or his delegate, will have final authority regarding disciplinary action which may range from a warning to expulsion from the College.

Information Programs
An informational program will be included at each new student orientation program at the beginning of each semester. This will include an overview of Campus Safety and Security policies and procedures, encouragement to take responsibility for the safety of self and others and where further information is available. 

Substance Abuse Policy
Walsh College will support activities and requirements of the Drug Free Workplace Act and Drug Free Schools and Campuses Act. It is a violation of College policy for students, employees, or visitors to engage in the unlawful manufacture, distribution, possession, or use of a controlled substance on College property.  College policy prohibits illegal use of alcohol  on campus.  Students in violation of these policies may face disciplinary action, including dismissal from the institution and/or appropriate criminal charges. Employees who are convicted of any criminal drug statute may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment and/or be required to satisfactorily complete an approved drug abuse program at the employee’s expense.  The College will provide information regarding the dangers of drug abuse and referrals for assistance programs.

Policy Regarding Timely Warnings 

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that may constitute an ongoing on continuing threat to the campus community, a campus wide timely warning will be issued.  The warning will be issued by providing a link to the City of Troy Crime Alert web page from the Walsh College website as they become available and/or by posting notification of the threat for the appropriate amount of time in areas around the campus impacted.  Any notification Walsh College receives from the City of Novi of a reportable event in the area of the Novi Campus will be communicated as soon as practicable.  Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to the Walsh College Director or Assistant Director of Facilities and Auxiliary Services or his designate is responsible for issuing warnings on campus.
