;4ptzil 18;4ptzil 24, 1994 New DorM To Go On East Campus The new student dom1 will be built in one of two locations on the east side of campus. The first possibility is behind third court next to the Uell M's lot. The other possibil ity is on the otiH.:r side of the seJVice toad across from the tennis courts. The new donn, whatewr its final l ocation, will have an eighty-person capacity. It will be made up of thR:"e Ooors seven sui tes per noor, with four separate bedrooms to each suite. Individual bcdmoms would be slightly bigger in size than 13-donn sing l e bedrooms. Each suite will also include a living room, two bathrooms and a kitchen Suites could be coed by unit. Plans also include overlapping balconies and a ground noor terrace Eventually, both site on the east campus will be u<>ed for new donns, for a total of lGo more bed .. Another 40 bed dorm may eventually go on th e west campus. The new dorms are an integral part of the administration's plan to increase the si7.e of New College's stud('nt body. Currently, the administration hopes to increase enrollment numbers to 800 while ptoviding on-campus hous ing for the majority of those. Assistant Student Affairs Direc tor Mark johnson hopes with the new donn t o lure off-cam pus students back on to campus by p10viding them with hous ing compatible with theit wishes. 111ere will be a Towne Meeting on Tuesday at 5:00 pm in I lam Center to gain student input and opinions about the new donn's location Carl Abbott, an architec t from fAIA Architects, took a group of administrat i on, faculty, and student on a tour of the two sites after a preliminary di cu&sion in I lam center last Tuesday Some of those in attendance included Campus AF chitcct Rick Lyttle, tudent Affairs Director Tom Levitan, Mark .Johnson, Pror jono Miller, Prof. john Moore, C A President E<..l Moore jean Czerlinski, f3eth Eldridge, and Steve Wtldman. According to Levitan and johnson, th<:> west side of <:am pus has realistically not been an option for the new donn since the Master Plan came out six to nine months ago. Thee are severa l reasons behind thi "Ne w Dorm" Continued on page 2 I Volume 1 Num6e7 16 Student Complaints and Violence at New College On Tuesday. April 12, Chuck Daly held an Open House on the topic of What can we do to stop act of vio lence at ew College?" Questions were raised about how acts were classified whether or not they wen:-crimes or hate crimes." Both 'J()m Levitan and one of the campus police officers attended to answer questions and participate in dis cussion Most of the discu&<>ion at this Open !louse was a question and answer sc&<>ion with both Levitan and the police officer. At the last Open I l ouse, confusion was exptcsscd over the proccdll!cs for filing complain t s and how records were kept of incidents. One student expressed problems with even knowing what language to use for describing inci dents, asking que tions, and keeping tecords The police officer emphasi7.ed that the cop shnp will not know about incidcnL<> if they are not reported lie also described two cliO' erent ways in which to file a police com plaint. The first is a criminal complaint in which the \ 'ic tim will make a report, filing an nlricial complaint or an infonna tiona! complaint (i.e. an ovctheard conversation about a po tential occurrence). The o th er route to report incidents to the police is to fill out a "comp laint can..l" which is a short report. This i not an officia l report, but docs make an incident a matter of !l'cord 1l1is is generally accompanied by a waiver of posecution which relieves the police rrom their legal obligation to inns tigate and prosecute the crime, while allowing a record to be kept. These waivers can be withdrawn if the victim changes her/is mind, subject to the s tatut e of limitations. 'f11e police ofTicer at the Open I lous<: reminded C\' eryone that the more time that e lapses before a complaint is filed, the weaker the case gets and the harder it is to in\'esti gate. Crimes that happened in the past can, howe\'ec be reported, especially since this allows a t ecord to be kept and patterns of repeat offenders to emerge. The third party p o lice report was also discussed "I1te e reports can be anonymous These Rports are gener ally made by student affairs and sent to the victim s advocate "Complaints" Continued on page 3

"Ne w Dorm" Continued from p a g e 1 First, the Master Plan listed only the cast campus as a itc for new clonnitories. Since the Master Plan has already passed through Tallahassee, any drastic change in it would require more time spent in preparing a new Master Plan As johnson put it, "11le Master Plan did not turn out to be as Ouid a l originally thought. lime is of the essence in build ing the new donn, both in getting funds and in starting con stmction. Second, Levitan stated that there was no power plant on the west side of campus to nm air conditioning for a dormitory. On the cast side, the new donn can use the power plant available for Pei. 1hird, johnson reported that Dean and Gordon Michalson had been approached by several professors who had misgivings about any dom1 being placed on the west side of campus. 'I11ey did not want any atea of student activity or life located near their offices. Fourth, several students, rno t notably Steve have in the past been quite vocal in their support for the ea t campus as the site for the new donn. Doth Michalson and johnson have in the past brought up this fact, usually naming Waldman as their example. During an interview regarding the new dom1,Johnson stated, "My personal preference is the west side." The cost of the new dom1 rooms will be dependent on the cost of the constmction. Current estimates range from $2600 $2900 per person per yeac Pei rooms will be at $2000 next year, and will be $2200 in a few years. funding for the donn has already been taken through the Board of Regents New College is trying to get a bond issue to pay for the dom1 passed through the legisla -Lure this session where it is currently being debated. There arc no concrete plans yet to determine what will replace B-dorm, which is slattd to be turned into offices in the Master Plan. Also unclear is the of Viking, whose increasing nge casts doubts its continuing u e. Still, Johnson stated that both dorms will be used for several years to come. "Student Complaints" Continued from page 1 in Tampa whenever an incident is to the school ad ministration This allows incidents to go on record The hope was expressed that once enough of these incidenLs arc re ported, they will be recorded for easier recognition of repeat offenders. Suggestions for future improvements to the complaint system included disseminating this infonnation in writing at orientation and on a regular basis throughout the year. It was also suggested that police officers give out "business eaRls to complainants so they will know who to contact to follow up on their case The possibility of including in the student hand book a pictorial representation or Oowchart of the pmcess of filing and following up on a complaint was considel('d as a method of alleviating the general ignorance about pKK'edures. Another suggestion was to invite police officers to attend court meetings at the beginning of the year to discus.<> pKKcdurcs and answer questions. The imp01tance of having a set procedure or written protocols, for the handling of cases was considerld important by several of the students present. One person stated, how ever, that standardizing is di!Ticult because cases vary and what the victim wants to happen also varies. It was also emphasized that as far as the university is concerned, if an i ncident isn't 1eported, it didn t happen. One student especially stressed that there are many places to re port incidents to and to cl1ose the one that was most comfort able: for example, incidents can be 1eported to RA' s, Chuck Daly (resident counselor and campus victim's advocate). 'Jbm Levitan (Director of Student Afl'air ), the coun cling center; and the cop shop. Telling someone about an incident, espe cially a violent one, wa considert:d important. The point was raised, however, that once an incident is reported. it is not over; there will be some type of rollow -up. Students expressed difficulty with the idea that all complaints handled by Student AH.airs arc subject to a six month statute of limitations, while the State law sets dilferent limitations upon dificrent crim<.'.. The police oOker also explained that the PS' ls (Po lice Service who are in uniform behind the counter in the cop shop have no access to infom1ation about com plaints. When checking on a complaint, it is best to talk to the officer who han<.Ucd the incident. Ap1ill8, 1994 ------------------
