FIE regards its housing and classroom facilities as safe spaces to live, study and work with students, faculty and staff who are understanding, supportive, and trustworthy. Our hope is that everyone in the FIE community – students, faculty, staff, and visitors – knows they can come to anyone for help, advice or just to talk and they can expect consideration and support. Inappropriate and derogatory comments and actions are not tolerated and any such behavior is addressed in an educational and informative manner. Everyone at FIE has a right to their opinion; however, if someone is stating myths or misinformation FIE faculty and staff will provide more accurate information in a respectful manner. Our approach is based on the Western Michigan State University “Safe on Campus” program.
