Germanna Community College has launched an online incident reporting platform called TIPS (Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services) from Awareity, making it easy for students, faculty, staff and others on campus to confidentially report concerning behaviors or incidents.

Bullying, threats to harm, verbal abuse, harassment, assault and battery, domestic violence, weapons, harassment, suicide risks, stalking, hazing, alcohol or drug possession, theft, vandalism and suspicious activity may be reported anonymously.

“TIPS allows anyone within the college community to come forward and anonymously share information regarding concerning behaviors with us,” said Germanna Dean of Student Development Pam Frederick. “The information is immediately communicated to our threat team and proactively investigated so we can prevent the situation from escalating.”
