Alrighty lets write some more jokes
Oh wait Dean Hutch is here, let's start getting real about things and stuff.
Hutch is introducing new staff person Director of Sexual Violence Prevention & Title 9 Support
Been here for about 3 months now.
Hutch is out of breath he's been running all around today.
Huge number of things Hutch is impressed with, but especially how we take care of each other. (Culture of Care)
Should never take it for granted.
Alcohol is always an issue, but doing better about it currently, but
Hard alcohol is creeping back in/breaking prohibition.
When you are serving alcohol in your room, you are responsible for them too.
Alison – Wants to talk about bystander training. If you see someone who needs help, you should take them back to their rooms and take care of them.
Hutch – Wants to reiterate that right now we don't have a serious problem, but want to talk about caution.
Riley – Can you reiterate amnesty policy?
Hutch – Person who is intoxicated and person who calls EMS have amnesty
Being disrespectful (e.g. punching EMTs)
People who have consumed hard alcohol/Person who served hard alcohol
Mac – Does RUPD investigate who served the hard alcohol
Hutch – Usually no, but sometimes yes.
Allison Shields – How do you expect sexual assault prevention is going to change.
Alison – What we are doing is creating a team of people working to investigate cases and standards for sexual assault cases. Trying to look at cases to see if things are more likely than not having been occurred.
If someone has been sexually assaulted they get a navigator and an assessment for their needs.
60 days – Standard time for a case.
Each person (accused and accuser) are treated equally.
Trying to be more holistic
Having a law firm to come in to talk to students
The lawyers are terrific, run a great workshop. Former sex crime prosecutors. Now work as consultants to make sure that sexual violence.
0 tolerance view towards sexual assault.
Christina – What does 0 tolerance mean?
In the Rolling Stone article about UVA, it perhaps says that after the 2nd assault you are removed from the university. We don't believe that here at Rice. If you are guilty as a sexual assaulter, you are suspended from Rice University.
Sexual violence is something that cannot exist at our university. If you hear word that anything happens here, let us know.
So erections are coming up. The hugest erections of the year. Mac will be sending out an e-mail with information about running. If you are interested in elected talk to the person who was elected into that position.
Sarah – Do seniors get to vote?
Mac – I'm not sure I'll get back to you.
