V.A.W.A. Statement

The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) and the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE) mandates that colleges must include dating violence, stalking and domestic violence in addition to other offenses reported under the Clery Act.

Two new categories have been added to the Hate Crime Reporting categories under the Clery Act; gender identity and national origin. If the preponderance of evidence suggests that a crime was motivated by a bias towards these or previously defined categories, it will be processed as a hate crime.

If you have been the victim of any of these offenses while on College property or at a College-sponsored event, please follow the reporting guidelines listed in your Student Handbook under Sexual Harassment and Affirmative Action.

You may speak to a counselor confidentially about your options (however, if you are under the age of 18 your conversation is not confidential and all accusations are reported to appropriate authorities).

You can reach a counselor by calling (609) 343-5667 at the Mays Landing campus.
