Bellin College Campus Security Authorities include the President, Vice Presidents, Deans, Title IX Coordinator, Director of Technology, Security Officers, and Concierge.

A crime is “reported” when it is brought to the attention of a Campus Security Authority or local law enforcement personnel by a victim, witness, or other third party.

Powers of Campus Safety and Security Personnel

Bellin College Safety and Security personnel have the authority to ask persons for personal identification and to determine whether individuals have lawful business on the Campus. Bellin College Safety and Security personnel have the authority to conduct parking control and enforcement of Campus parking rules and regulations. Safety and Security personnel do not have the power of arrest. Criminal matters are referred to local law enforcement authorities who have jurisdiction on campus. The Bellin College Security Team enjoys a professional working relationship with the Bellevue Police Department, Brown County Sheriff’s Department, and Bellevue Fire Department. These relationships include the exchange of information for the purpose of crime prevention and crime reporting.

Security Procedures and Practices

General Access to Campus Facilities
Building exterior entrance doors are operated by a computerized electronic locking system which is activated through a central control point. Each student, faculty and staff member is issued a programmable electronic door access key card. The door locking system allows key card access to certain areas and restricts access to others, depending on individual authorization. Students have access to the facility Monday through Friday from 7:00am – 8:00pm when school is in session. The college is open to the public Monday through Friday from 7:00am – 4:30pm.

Students are welcome to have guests visit campus. All guests check in and check out from the Campus at the Concierge Desk near the main enterence. All guests must wear Visitor badges obtained from the Concierge at time of sign in and return the badge at time of check out.

Maintenance Access to Campus Facilities
Standard maintenance, repair and modification and adjustment of Bellin College facilities are performed by the College’s Building & Grounds Technician. Additional, related work may be performed by outside contractors in conjunction with and coordinated by the Technician and / or senior administrative staff. The following procedure is followed for such occasions:

  1. The contractor must sign in as a ‘guest’ at the Concierge Desk near the main enterence. All contractors must wear Visitor badges obtained from the Concierge at time of sign in and return the badge at time of check out.
  2. The Concierge will contact the Building & Grounds Technician or senior administrative staff who will supervise related maintenance.
  3. When complete, the Contractor will sign out at the Concierge Desk

Evacuation
The fire alarm(s) station lever may be pulled if a building needs to be evacuated. Fire extinguishers and alarm pull stations are located on every floor. Evacuation from buildings may be required due to emergencies such as fire, chemical spill, flooding, gas leak, bomb or other threats, or during other immediate safety and health crises when the need to leave the building outweighs the need to remain inside. Campus Safety personnel will circulate to give directions about the emergency and the next steps to take. Evacuation destinations will be subject to the nature of the emergency and conditions which exist at the time of evacuation. The Bellin College emergency notification system, “School Messenger”, may also be activated. These procedures are tested at intervals throughout the calendar year.

Lock Out / Lock Down
Lock Down/Lock Out procedures are implemented in response to unsafe conditions either inside or outside of campus buildings.

Lock Out – when there is an external threat, and Bellin College will take immediate action to lock the outside doors during normal business hours, the goal will be to contain people in the building until the threat is removed. Classes and business will continue to the extent possible.

  • External doors are locked by the computer controlled locking system.
  • Building emergency personnel are assigned to monitor primary doors to get members of the Bellin College community safely inside the buildings, and to discourage individuals from leaving.

Lock Down – in the event of an internal threat, Bellin College will take immediate action to lock outside and inside doors, the goal will be to protect individuals from an intruder:

  • Take immediate action to lock doors within the College.
  • Lock and barricade all doors leading into your area (office, classroom, public area). When possible, use interior rooms (storage room, office) for safety.
  • Stay away from all doors and windows. Sit or lie down on the floor and remain quiet.
  • Assess the developing situation and plan for safely escaping from the threat.
  • Escape from the threat only if this is an option of lesser risk than remaining sheltered in place.

Crime Prevention

Student Orientation
Every year during Student Orientation students receive a presentation from Bellin College staff related to crime prevention, safety and security, and Title IX.

Additional Crime Prevention and Security Awareness Programs
Personnel from the Campus Security Authority are available to present to academic classes, departments, student organizations and campus offices information regarding campus safety issues around crime prevention and security awareness.

Campus Security Authority Continuing Crime Prevention and Wellness Programs
Bellin College provides all employees who are Campus Security Authorities with training and information concerning their responsibilities to report certain crimes.

How to Report a Crime or Emergency

Students, employees and visitors are encouraged to accurately and immediately report any criminal offense, suspected criminal activity, or other emergency directly to the Brown County Emergency Services. Reporting crimes-in-progress or emergency conditions can be done by contacting 911 from a cell phone or 9-911 from a campus phone; and, for non-emergencies (920) 448-4200 to reach the Bellevue Police Department.

The Bellin College Security Team encourages anyone who is the victim of, or witness to, any crime to promptly report the incident to both the local police and to the Security Team. For non‐emergencies report to the Bellin College Security Team by calling (920) 433-4301 (254301 internally) during daytime hours or (920) 433-6698 (256698 internally) during evening and weekend hours. We encourage students and employees to put this non‐emergency number into their cell phones as a speed dial entry.

All crimes should be reported to the Security Team for the purpose of making timely warning reports and to fulfill the annual statistical disclosure requirement.

Always use 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency

 

Voluntary Confidential Reporting

Campus Safety & Security
Providing a safe learning environment is important and Bellin College is committed to the safety and security of all students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Campus safety and security is a shared responsibility between the College and its campus community members. See the Safety and Security Page for additional information. 

Drug & Alcohol Policy and Standards of Conduct

The purpose of this policy is to provide an alcohol and drug-free environment for faculty, students, administration, and support staff at Bellin College in order that the College may carry out its mission and comply with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.

The College does not oversee the personal lives of College members on or off campus. However, everyone is expected to be responsible for her/his own conduct and abide by all state and federal laws and follow College policies and guidelines. The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, use, or being under the influence of a controlled substance or alcohol is prohibited within the Bellin College building, on the campus grounds, or in other settings in which the faculty, staff, or students may be carrying on the business of the College. Any exceptions to the College policy of not serving alcoholic beverages at College-sponsored events must be approved through the President’s Office. Consumption of alcohol at such events must be in moderation.

Violations of federal and Wisconsin laws regarding drugs and alcohol will be considered violations of College regulations and the American Nurses’ Association Code for Nurses. As a nursing student enrolling in the BSN program, a violation of drug and alcohol use must be reported to the Board of Nursing with application of State Licensure. It is the Board of Nursing’s discretion to determine eligibility for state licensure. Students in the BSRS program follow procedures relating to the national board examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

Bellin College cooperates with civil authorities in the enforcement of local, state, and federal laws. Penalties against persons found in violation of this policy include disciplinary action up to and including termination from the College program or employment. Persons found in violation may be required to participate satisfactorily in a drug or alcohol abuse assistance or rehabilitation program which is approved for such purposes by a federal, state or local health, law enforcement, or other appropriate agency. Licensed Practical Nurses who are nursing students may be reported to the Wisconsin Board of Nursing.

Resources available for alcohol and drug abuse problems include, but are not limited to, the Bellin Health Office, the Bellin Health Employee Assistance Program, resources affiliated through colleges that students may be dually enrolled, and/or other community resources.

To comply with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-226), the College annually provides information regarding: the College policy regarding drugs and alcohol, a description of the legal sanctions and health risks, a description of available treatment programs, and sanctions to be imposed if violations occur. This information is available via the College website and through printed material.

Drug & Alcohol – Abuse Education Programs

Professional assistance is available through Bellin’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Contacting EAP is confidential. For information or an appointment call (920) 433-7483. Additional information is available through:

Firearms & Weapons

Bellin College prohibits the possession or storage within its buildings, of all types of firearms, bows and arrows, sling shots, explosives, impact instruments, or any device that is designed to propel a projectile or to be propelled in an offensive manner. Cutting instruments that are not designed to be used as tools during college related work or educational projects are also prohibited.

2011 Wisconsin Act 35 notwithstanding, the Bellin College Administration reserves the right to determine whether any article is to be allowed onto, or prohibited from the campus. Prohibited possession of weapons on Bellin College property may result in academic expulsion, termination of employment, or referral to the judicial system. Possession of legal weapons does not apply to storage within a vehicle that is driven onto the property, or parked in the parking facility.

The policy does not apply to peace officers, members of the armed forces, or military personnel armed in the line of duty, or any person authorized by the police chief of any city, village or town, or the sheriff of any county to possess a firearm in any building.

Programs to Prevent Sexual Violence and Discriminatory Acts

Bellin College is dedicated to an equal education opportunity for all students and the elimination of forms of sexual misconduct and discrimination

Title IX – Addressing Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence
On June 23, 1972, the President of the United States signed Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., into law. Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity.

Bellin College’s Title IX Policy and Statements

 Anti-Intimidation/Anti-Harassment Oriented Healthy Campus

Bellin College endorses and promotes a healthy workplace culture. The College prohibits conduct which may be interpreted as intimidation or harassment as described in this policy. The college wishes to promote a friendly, welcoming, and healthy environment in conjunction with the College’s Mission Statement. Every individual is entitled to be treated with respect and to be free from intimidation and harassment. All members of the college community are expected to behave in a manner which demonstrates proper regard for the rights and welfare of others.

Staff are required, and students are strongly encouraged, to provide support to individuals who are intimidated or harassed and to report incidents to a Campus Security Authority.

Anti-Harassment Policy

Bellin College does not tolerate or condone any form of harassment including sexual harassment and bullying.

Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or unsolicited verbal, written, or physical conduct of a sexual nature of any kind and especially when:

  • Submission to such conduct or communication by an individual is made a term or condition, either explicitly or implicitly, of employment, service, education, or housing.
  • Submission to or rejection of such conduct or communication by an individual is used as a factor of discrimination in decisions affecting such individual’s employment, service, education, or housing.
  • Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or academic performance, creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive employment, educational, or living environment.

Harassment can also come in various forms of bullying. Anti-bullying provision defines bullying as:

  • Verbal, mental and/or physical abuse.
  • Threatening, humiliating, or intimidating conduct towards another person.
  • Sabotage or interference that prevents completion or performance of one’s academic or work responsibilities.
  • Exploitation of a known psychological or physical vulnerability.

Students of the College who believe they are or have been the object of such conduct outlined above should contact the Dean of Student Services or another member of the College’s administration. Depending upon the severity, discipline for sexual and other forms of harassment may include verbal or written reprimand, law enforcement involvement, and/or up to and including dismissal from the College, depending upon the severity of the harassment.

Incidents Motivated by Hatred or Prejudice

Bellin College values the diversity of its people and recognizes that a threat against any member of our community is truly a threat against our way of life. As a result, standardized protocol has been developed for the reporting and referral to the appropriate authorities of incidents motivated by hatred or prejudice which involve members of the College community.

Acts or threats of violence motivated by hatred or prejudice are serious acts, often vicious in nature, which tear at the fabric of our society. These occurrences generate fear among victims as well as the entire community and have the potential of recurring, escalating and possibly causing counter-violence.

Examples of hate-related crimes include prejudice based on:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Gender
  • Gender Identity
  • Ethnicity
  • National Origin
  • Disability

It is the policy of Bellin College to ensure that the rights of all students, faculty, staff and visitors, as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States, and the State of Wisconsin, are protected. Among those constitutional guarantees is the right to live without fear of attack by, or threat from, an individual or group due to hatred or prejudice. When any act motivated by hatred or prejudice occurs, Bellin College will use every necessary and legal resource to rapidly and decisively identify the suspects and bring them to justice.

Non-Discrimination Policy

It is the policy of Bellin College to be nondiscriminatory because of race, color, creed, national and ethnic origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or handicap in the admission of students, in student programs, and in the employment of College faculty and staff.

In conformance with applicable federal and state regulations, Bellin College is committed to nondiscrimination, equal opportunity, and affirmative action in its educational programs and employment policies. Inquiries concerning this policy may be directed to the Dean of Student Services.

Discrimination – Conduct Prohibited

While harassment is a form of discrimination under law, federal and local laws prohibit, more broadly, different treatment of similarly situated individuals based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability or other legally protected characteristics or conduct. Examples of discrimination may include any distinction, preference, advantage for or detriment to an individual compared to others that is based upon an individual’s actual or perceived race, color, religion, sex, marital status, national origin, age, disability, citizenship, sexual orientation, veteran status, and any other groups protected by federal, state or local statutes.  The conduct must be so egregious as to alter the conditions of the individual’s employment or educational experience.

Complaint Procedure; Prohibitions against Retaliation or False Complaints

Bellin College seeks to resolve all student concerns in a timely and effective manner. To that end, this complaint process serves as an ongoing means for students to discuss concerns or register formal complaints that pertain to alleged violations of State consumer protection laws that include but are not limited to fraud and false advertising; alleged violations of State laws or rules relating to the licensure of postsecondary institutions; and complaints relating to the quality of education or other State or accreditation requirements. Academic Affairs, Student Services, Admissions, Bursar, Registrar, and Financial Aid all provide specific administrative means to address and resolve most, if not all of the questions and concerns you may have. See Complaints Process for full details.

Registered Sex Offenders Information

The Wisconsin Department of Corrections sex offender registry was established in June 1997 due to the enactment of Wisconsin Act 440 – Wisconsin Statutes 301.45 and 301.46. This law requires registration of individuals who have been convicted of certain sexual offenses. By law, the registry generally contains information on those individuals who were convicted of, incarcerated, or on supervision for a sex offense on or after December 25, 1993. It is not a list of every person who has ever committed, been arrested for, or convicted of a sex offense. If a person has not been convicted of a qualifying offense, or if information has not been submitted about that person, information about that person may not be included in the registry. The information contained in the registry will not reflect the entire criminal history of a particular individual.

It is not the intent of the Legislature that this information be used to injure, harass, or commit a criminal act against persons named in the registry, their families, or employers. Anyone who takes any criminal action against these registrants, including vandalism of property, verbal or written threats of harm or physical assault against these registrants, their families or employers is subject to criminal prosecution.

Non-Crime Reporting

One formal complaint was filed in January 2017. The complaint was determined to be a violation of the College’s Anti-Harassment Policy by two students to a peer. Corrective actions were imposed on the two students such as but not limited to completion of two training courses, “Practicing Inclusion: Diversity Awareness for Undergraduate Students” and “Unlawful Harassment Prevention”. The summary of the investigation and findings are filed in the President’s area as per our policy.
