Creating a Campus Wide Community of Caring
Our King’s College community has collaborated to develop a comprehensive program to educate and provide support to our students throughout their undergraduate experience at the College.
Respect for the dignity of each person regardless of their background, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religious beliefs/practices, ethnic and racial backgrounds is core to the experience of the King’s College community.
Prior to arriving on campus all new first-year and transfer students must complete the first phase of the program focusing on issues regarding sexual assault and alcohol and drug use. The modules address risks and decision making on these issues.
Throughout the Holy Cross Experience Course (HCE 101) incoming students further their understanding of sexual misconduct and alcohol and drug usage. They gain an understanding of campus policies and the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Students participate in bystander education training, which demonstrates when to intervene and how to do so safely in order to help other students and members of the community.
During the year we provide additional educational experiences including speakers, the showing of the documentary The Hunting Ground and other programs on these and other topics to help students develop as a person.
The College, on a biannual basis, conducts a Campus Climate Survey (utilizing materials from Skyfactor/EBI) evaluating the campus on issues related to diversity and sexual assault. These results are used to help improve our educational efforts, awareness and service for students.
