Relevant Excerpt

The Achieving Community Together (ACT) process is a fact-finding, communication, education, and response process that was developed to provide guidance in assisting and supporting the student community when incidents occur that are experienced or perceived as undermining the College's Principle of Community. 

All ACT reports are shared with the ACT Response Team (ART).  This team evaluates each report and when appropriate meets with the impacted and implicated parties. If there is behavior that, if true, violates a college Standard of Conduct, the report will be shared with the Department of Safety & Security and the Office of Community Standards & Accountability for appropriate action under applicable disciplinary processes.  Otherwise, our goal is not to engage in disciplinary action but to engage in dialogue about the action and its impact in an effort to learn, grow, and to enhance our community.  Through this process we work together to raise awareness, create educational and restorative opportunities for growth and responsibility, and provide support across our community for fulfilling our Principle of Community.

Reporting an Incident: If you witness or are directly impacted by an incident, immediately contact a College official or Safety and Security at 603-646-4000, or submit the report using the Online Reporting  Form.
