Public Awareness/Advocacy Events:
If you disclose a situation through a public awareness event such as “Take Back the Night,” candlelight vigils, protests, or other public event, SUNY Broome Community College is not obligated to begin an investigation. SUNY Broome Community College may use the information you provide to inform the need for additional education and prevention efforts.
Sexual Assault & Violence Response (SAVR) Resources (Provided by SUNY Central)
SUNY takes reports of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking seriously. If you are a member of a SUNY community and have experienced any of the above, the Sexual Assault & Violence Response (SUNY SAVR) Resources Website provides you with information you can use to seek resources and support, and to report the crime to law enforcement and the campus. Access the SUNY SAVR website here.
Institutional Crime Reporting:
Reports of certain crimes occurring in certain geographic locations will be included in the SUNY Broome Community College Clery Act Annual Security Report in an anonymized manner that neither identifies the specifics of the crime or the identity of the reporting individual or victim/survivor. Specific inquiries regarding sexual violence reports and their use within Clery Act Annual Security Report may be addressed to Scott Schuhert, Dean of Students and Title IX Coordinator. He can be reached using any of the methods below.
- Location: Science Building 226
- Phone: 607-778-5681
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
SUNY Broome Community College is obligated to issue timely warnings of Clery Act crimes occurring within relevant geography that represent a serious or continuing threat to students and employees (subject to exceptions when potentially compromising law enforcement efforts and when the warning itself could potentially identify the reporting individual or victim/survivor). A reporting individual will never be identified in a timely warning.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act allows institutions to share information with parents when (1) there is a health or safety emergency, or (2) when the student is a dependent on either parents’ prior year federal income tax return. Generally, SUNY Broome Community College will not share information about a report of sexual violence with parents without the permission of the reporting individual.
