There is a “Sexual Harassment Policy Review Committee” looking at rewriting and updating the current policy to be most applicable to Bennington’s campus. However, there are already a lot of policies in place that attempt to keep the entire campus safe. Here is a link to the student handbook:http://www.bennington.edu/docs/default-source/docs-student-life/StudentHandbook.pdf?sfvrsn=6
We decided to answer this question because one of our close friends is one of the Sexual Harassment Advisors. There are students, faculty and staff members that act as resources for questions, concerns or worry about any sexual harassment or assault issue. They can act as a “first step”, counselor and advocate depending on what you need. We are also looking to expand on these positions and create a more comprehensive student wellness advocate.
