Investigating Historical Employee Sexual Misconduct

In keeping with established practices among independent schools, in 2017 the School began to investigate historical employee sexual misconduct. 具体地说, 这些调查主要集中在事件发生时没有报告的事件上, or incidents in which the School’s contemporary response was deficient. All such investigations are conducted by outside investigators. School employees do not communicate with the outside investigators, 除非全面而直接地回答他们贝搏体育官方网站app指控的问题,并遵守提供有关记录的要求, such as personnel files.

Reporting Findings 而且 Supporting Survivors
从那时起,学院已经向所有校友、现任和前任员工分发了三封信,贝搏体育下载的网址为他们提供了物理通信地址, families of all current students, 上师 students. 这些信件总结了这些调查的结果,现在被存档在这里. The School provides summaries of investigators’ findings, rather than the investigators’ reports, in order to protect the privacy of survivors, 目击者, other innocent people that these documents either name or make identifiable. 写报告的调查员仔细审查每一个摘要以确保其准确性. 贝搏体育下载的网址不认为贝搏体育下载的网址目前收到的报告代表了历史上最初未被报告的员工不当行为的全部,也不认为学院当时的反应有缺陷. 贝搏体育下载的网址会继续竭尽所能,建立社会各界对学院调查指控过程的信心. 贝搏体育下载的网址将继续以及时和透明的方式分享贝搏体育下载的网址的调查结果, posting any new letters here 而且 notifying our community by email when we do so. 贝搏体育下载的网址致力于承认并支持历史上员工不当行为的幸存者.

Historical Investigation Letters

We welcome your help in three ways.

  • 第一个, if you directly experienced employee sexual or other behavioral misconduct, 要么在事件发生时没有报告,要么认为学院当时的反应有缺陷, 请考虑将你的指控告诉学院的外部调查人员 Van Dermyden Makus莉斯巴黎, 林赛英, or Tessa Nevarez—by calling (800) 280-2656, a hotline number reserved for this purpose.
  • 第二个, 如果一个自称是外部调查员的人联系你以提供证人证词来回应其他人的指控, 在分享信息之前,请拨打上述号码确认外部调查员的身份. [Consistent with the st而且ard of care, outside investigators only initiate contact with people named by others as potential 目击者; they do not initiate contact with people named by others as possible survivors.]
  • 第三, 请不要与史蒂文森的熟人和其他人猜测未具名幸存者和目击者的身份, 因为这样做可能会无意中造成一种环境,在这种环境中,人们不太可能放心地提出有效调查所依赖的新信息或额外信息.
