911 for Emergencies
IW CAMPUS ALERT
This is Iowa Wesleyan’s mass communication system for emergencies. The system is an opt-in program where all members of the campus community are encouraged to register.
All registrants will receive any emergency communication via the IW Campus Alert system which includes phone call / voicemail, email and text message communications. Typical uses of IW Campus Alert include severe weather alerts, campus closures, or ALICE situations.
Registration information and instructions are made available to all members of the campus community multiple times throughout the year.
IW SAFETY FIRST
This on-line reporting mechanism allows Iowa Wesleyan community members to report non-emergency crimes and concerns to the IW Student Development Office. Concerns raised involving Faculty or Staff will be shared with Human Resources and when necessary or more appropriate, addressed by the Director of Human Resources. Anonymous reporting is available within this mechanism. However, those reporting anonymously will not receive any direct response from the University. Anonymous reports will be investigated and addressed to the best of the University’s ability.
SECURITY & NIGHT ESCORT
While Iowa Wesleyan’s campus is quite safe, Security personnel patrol campus from 9pm-5am daily, 365 days a year. The University has a strong working relationship with the Mt. Pleasant Police Department as well. Students who wish to be escorted from one campus location to another should contact Security. Students locked out of their room between 12:00 and 5:00 am should contact Security 319.931.6802. Between 5:00 PM and 12:00 AM, Resident Assistants or front desk staff should be contacted.
ANNUAL FIRE AND CRIME STATISTICS
The annual Fire and Crime Statistics report is posted in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f), which requires all colleges and universities participating in federal financial aid programs to maintain and disclose campus crime statistics and security information. This report also includes information required by Title IX of the Educational Amendments Acts of 1972 and the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 as amended. Iowa Wesleyan’s Fire Safety Report is published pursuant to the provision of the Higher Education Opportunity Act pertaining to campus fire safety information and statistics 20 U.S.C. § 1092(i).
TITLE IX AND SEXUAL MISCONDUCT
Iowa Wesleyan University is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for its students, faculty, staff, friends of the University, and visitors. Therefore, Iowa Wesleyan does not tolerate sexual misconduct in any form. To best support the mission of Iowa Wesleyan, the University will take appropriate action to prevent sexual violence (assault, rape, stalking, dating violence, etc.), immediately and appropriately investigate claims of sexual misconduct, and will promptly and effectively stop recurrence and remedy effects to the best of the institution’s ability.
Iowa Wesleyan’s charge is to implement effective policies and procedures for members of the campus community to report sexual misconduct; to offer multiple reporting mechanisms; to create a culture free of barriers to encourage reporting, and to distinguish between confidential and non-confidential reporting options.
Victims of Sexual Misconduct are encouraged to file formal complaints with the University. All Faculty and Staff, excluding Confidential Resources listed below, are expected to report all violations of Iowa Wesleyan’s Sexual Misconduct Policy, at a minimum “anonymously.”
Responsible administrators listed below must report the entirety of their knowledge of the claim immediately to the Title IX Coordinator.
Alcohol and Drug Use
Iowa Wesleyan takes chemical dependency seriously. The University utilizes services in Mt. Pleasant, such as ADDS to provide support to faculty, staff and students who may experience the effects of alcohol or drug use. Contact information for ADDS is below.
