In addition, community resources (see below), which are not affiliated with the College, also are available to provide medical assistance and other confidential support for individuals who have been impacted by gender-based misconduct.
Babson confidential resources will not share with either the College or with law enforcement any identifiable information about those they are supporting or incidents disclosed to them by that person, without that person’s permission, unless:
- sharing information is necessary to address imminent risk of harm the person they are supporting, or to protect the safety of others who are at risk of imminent harm;
- they learn information involving abuse of minors (under the age of 18 in Massachusetts), persons with disabilities, or the elderly which they are legally required to report to government authorities; or
- if required by a valid subpoena or court order to provide testimony.
Babson confidential resources may report non-identifiable statistical information about incidents disclosed to them without disclosing any identifying information about involved parties under the following circumstances:
- Massachusetts General Laws chapter 112, §12A 1/2 requires medical personnel to report to the Commonwealth and the police in the town where a rape or sexual assault occurred data concerning any and all cases of rape and sexual abuse where the survivor seeks medical treatment. However, the data that must be reported does not include the survivor’s name, address or other identifying information;
- A Federal law known as the Clery Act requires Babson employees who have been designated as ‘campus security authorities’ to report to Babson Public Safety non-identifying statistical information about crimes which reportedly occurred on campus or on College controlled property so that Public Safety can determine if the incident should be included among the crime statistics the College is required to publish each year in its Annual Security Report (ASR); and
- Babson confidential resources may, without disclosing individuals’ identities, report to the Title IX Coordinator the general nature, date and location of a reported incident, to help keep the Title IX Coordinator informed about the extent and nature of sexual misconduct occurring on and off campus. Such reporting assists Babson’s ability to track patterns, evaluate the scope of a problem and formulate appropriate campus-wide responses. However, before reporting any such information to the Title IX Coordinator, confidential resources will consult with the impacted individual(s) to ensure that their personally identifying details are not shared with the Title IX Coordinator
