The S.H.A.R.E. (Sexual Harassment/Assault Resources and Education) Committee was formed with the mission to educate Stonehill community members regarding issues of sexual violence. Part of their work involves the oversight of the S.H.A.R.E. Advisor Program.
The S.H.A.R.E. Committee is responsible for coordinating and providing training for the S.H.A.R.E. Advisor Program, which provides support and advice to Stonehill students who have experience sexual assault and/or to those community members accused of sexual assault. The S.H.A.R.E. committee also helps coordinate sexual assault prevention, education and awareness programs for the campus.
What are S.H.A.R.E. Advisors?
S.H.A.R.E. Advisors are a group of trained staff and faculty members who provide support and resource information to gender-based misconduct complainants and respondents. A list of current S.H.A.R.E. Advisors, with campus contact information, can be found in the chart below. Outside of business hours (8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday), S.H.A.R.E. Advisors can be accessed by contacting Campus Police at 508-565-1000. It is important to note that S.H.A.R.E. Advisors, as they are private, not “confidential” resources, must report gender-based misconduct to the College if the individual has not already done so.
- Assist, guide and support throughout the College disciplinary process and/or the criminal justice process should the survivor choose to pursue this course of action.
- Assist in referring academic concerns such as missed classes and/or assignments, or changing sections.
- Provide assistance in contacting community resources such as rape crisis centers, support groups, etc. if desired.
- Provide general support and assistance as needed. It is always the survivor who chooses which services she/he would like to utilize.
*Please note, however, that S.H.A.R.E. Advisors are not a confidential resource. They are compelled by law to notify Campus Police or the Title IX Coordinator of any report of sexual assault and must disclose the name of the victim. If a student wishes to report in a confidential manner please refer to the Confidential Reporting Options.
