Phillips Exeter hires 2 'student well-being' directors after sex assault allegations

EXETER — Phillips Exeter Academy has officially hired two professionals in order to oversee "student well-being" in response to the several sexual assault allegations reported in recent months.

Tina Sciocchetti, of global law firm Nixon Peabody, and Jane Stapleton, of the UNH Prevention Innovations Research Center, will be responsible for jointly handling the student well-being position until a single person is selected.
