Campus Contact Information

For on-campus reporting, please contact one of the Wells College staff members listed below.

Non-Confidential Campus Resources

Community members may contact the below non-confidential campus resources for information about the College's policies and procedures, and for information and access to support and resources. These are the persons designated and highly trained to receive information of alleged sexual misconduct and to initiate the College's responsive action. If information is made to any other College employee, the individual reporting the information risks that the information will not be acted upon.

The staff members listed below are trained to support individuals affected by sexual misconduct and to coordinate with the Title IX coordinator, consistent with the College's commitment to a safe and healthy educational environment. While not bound by 100% confidentiality in all matters, these resources will maintain the privacy of an individual's information within the limited circle of those involved in the Title IX resolution process.

Reports can begin by contacting the individuals, all of whom have received thorough training in issues regarding sexual assault reporting and victim support, as well as the processes and timelines regarding:

  • How individuals can make a report of an alleged incident;
  • Investigating a complaint and possible referrals for conduct referrals;
  • How to support victims of alleged crimes, including how to find support on and off campus
