On Campus Resources

The Advocates

  • The Advocates are not mandated reporters, and can act as confidential counselors, advisors or sources of support. We are very survivor-oriented, can help navigate options for therapy, healing, reporting or any other further action the survivor wishes to take.

  • We are happy to help students from any of the seven campuses.

  • Any of the Advocates can be reached by personal email or by dropping by our rooms.

  • We can also be reached at advocates@pomona.edu.

  • If you wish to contact us anonymously you can send us an email via sendanonymousemail.net, or use our anonymous contact form.

  • Advocates also staff the Heart Center weekly, and are available there to talk to survivors, friends of survivors, or anyone looking to better support survivors on campus.

  • An Advocate is always available through call or text on our Hotline: (909) 503-7972

Callisto

  • Callisto is a website and an online tool created to help survivors find resources, information, and report if they choose to do so

  • Callisto is Pomona-specific, meaning it has accurate information about Pomona's policies and many local resources

  • It is a platform to create and save a time-stamped document with all the details of an assault confidentially - this record can later be used if a survivor chooses to report, or it can remain visible only to them forever

  • Reports can be made to the Pomona administration through Callisto at any time

  • Survivors can choose to enter information a matching system: in this case, the assault will only be reported to the administration if another person enters information into the matching system identifying the same perpetrator

The Pomona RAs

  • RAs are mandated reporters. They are required by the college to report, at minimum, that an incident has occurred on campus, without necessarily naming those involved—though they may have to disclose other details depending on the circumstances of the incident and one should discuss issues of confidentiality with them. RAs can assume the role of advisor and confidant to the survivor (if they wish) in internal campus proceedings such as college investigations or judicial hearings by the Sexual Assault Board, and are trained to attend to the needs of survivors and those close to them within the campus community.

  • From a campus emergency phone, the RA on Call can be reached via the extension 18001 and via (909) 621-8001 on any other phone. Listen for a dial tone.

    • For North Campus, dial 21 or 22.
    • For Harwood, Wig and Lyon dial 23.
    • For Mudd-Blaisdell, Gibson, Oldenborg and Smiley dial 24.

    Stay on the phone line to be connected directly to the RA on call.

  • Keep in mind that RAs are not on call between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, but are on call at all other times.

Campus Safety (7-College)

  • Besides immediate emergency response and protection, calling Campus Safety gives you access, by request, to a safety escort back to your building, the Dean on call or the therapist on call. Campus Safety is mandated to report crimes and incidents on campus, and will keep records of them.

  • Campus safety can also be called in cases of medical emergency, and will escort a survivor to the local police department and hospital if the survivor wishes to inform law enforcement, file a report of the incident, or undergo a medical examination.

  • Campus Safety is located in the Pendleton Business Building on Eighth Street and can be reached 24 hours a day all days of the week at (909) 607-2000 or (909) 621-8170, and by the extension 72000 on the blue emergency phone booths across campus. Calling this number dispatches a campus security officer to your location immediately.

  • To report an incident or crime anonymously, you can fill out a form on Campus Safety’s website.

Student Health Services (7-College)

  • Student Health Services incorporates the Monsour Counseling Center and Health Education Outreach (HEO). Besides providing basic exams, STI/HIV testing, emergency contraception, pregnancy testing and general medication, Student Health Services also provides counseling services and group therapy through Monsour, as well as programming and workshops on drugs and alcohol, stress, sleep, nutrition and sexual health via HEO.

Information may only be released with the student’s consent, except with regard to state-mandated reporting issues (child abuse, elder abuse, imminent danger).

  • Monsour also offers a peer-led support group for survivors studying at the Claremont Colleges that meets every Friday from 1:00 – 2:30 pm. The group is designed for women who have experienced sexual assault or abuse, whether as children or adults, whether recently or long ago. Within the group survivors are encouraged to share their experiences, explore their feelings and receive support as they heal. Joining the group requires a group screening appointment. To find out more, contact Katy at katyd@cuc.claremont.edu.

  • For LGBTQ survivors looking to seek psychological support, Abi Weissman is a staff member at Monsour that has undergone Ally Training by the Queer Resource Center and has a working knowledge of the issues students might face.
