To the School of Music Community:
By now everyone has seen President Levin’s response to the report issued by the Advisory Committee on Campus Climate regarding sexual misconduct at Yale. As the University builds upon this response and continues the momentum of recent improvements, I want to reiterate that the School of Music must be an educational, employment, and living environment where every community member values mutual respect and civility.
At the School of Music, as at the rest of the University, sexual misconduct must not be tolerated.
If you remain uncertain or unclear about what constitutes sexual misconduct or about the resources available to all graduate students, faculty and staff, visit the Sexual Misconduct Response website at http://smr.yale.edu. This site lists the options and resources for those who have been affected by sexual misconduct, directly or indirectly.
Whether you live on or off campus, I urge all students to contact the Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Education (SHARE) Center if you are in need of information, advocacy, or support. SHARE Center counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 203-432-2000. If you believe a crime has been committed or feel you are in immediate danger, please contact the Yale Police at 203 432-4400.
Also, the University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC) has been reviewing and investigating both informal and formal inquiries and complaints since July. If you seek advice or are considering filing a complaint, contact the UWC at 203 432-1834 during office hours or visit www.yale.edu/uwc.
As the School’s Title IX Coordinator, I will do everything I can to assist and inform you of your options. In the meantime, we are all responsible for ensuring that the educational and work environments are safe and supportive. Thank you for your efforts.
Best wishes to everyone for a wonderful holiday and a happy and prosperous 2012.
