At Colby College, primary prevention is our highest goal when addressing sexual violence. This means that we offer educational programs and support services that challenge the beliefs, biases, and behaviors that perpetuate sexual violence. On Colby’s campus, faculty, staff, and students are working together to create a climate in which sexual violence is impermissible and speaking out against sexual violence is the norm.
When sexual violence does occur, however, we are dedicated to responding in a timely and sensitive manner, ensuring that all involved are aware of the resources available on campus and in the larger Kennebec County area.
This site is designed to:
- Connect those who have experienced sexual violence to the support resources and reporting resources they need
- Inform Colby faculty, staff, and students about how sexual violence is defined and addressed on campus and in Waterville
- Help Colby community members to be positive support people and active bystanders
