RSA 188H: Sexual Misconduct Climate Survey:

In February/March 2022, a sexual misconduct climate survey with a series of standard base questions was distributed to all undergraduate and graduate students in the state of New Hampshire as a required component of a new state law aimed at addressing campus sexual misconduct. WMCC’s results can be found here. 

When reviewing the summary findings, please note that the definition of sexual misconduct as it relates to this survey is quite broad, so it is important to read the survey questions and responses in their entirety and note the total number of people who answered a specific question to best understand the results. The results will be an important component in our campus’s ongoing work to prevent and respond to all forms of sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence.

Statewide data on the sexual misconduct survey can be found here.

Sexual Harassment Education: Awareness, Prevention, and Response

WMCC is committed to providing current and up to date training for all members of its community that are involved in the implementation of our reporting and grievance process.

WMCC’s Title IX Coordinator and college leadership participated in training on the new CCSNH policy and Title IX process in July 2021. The training was conducted by Drummond Woodsum Attorneys at Law.

Title IX Coordinator Training

Key members of WMCC participated in extensive training through D. Stafford & Associates on Title IX and how to conduct a Title IX investigation in February 2020.  These members include the Vice President for Student Affairs & Title IX Coordinator, President, Vice President of Academic Affairs, Human Resources Officer, Director of Academic Centers, and Campus Security Supervisor, who conducts our investigations. These members undergo recertification training yearly through D. Stafford & Associates.

Due to proprietary ownership of the training by D. Stafford & Associates, a copy of the training is currently not available. Questions regarding the training may be directed to the Title IX Coordinator.
