Sexual Misconduct Policy in Place After Year of Review By Task Force

The university is committed to creating and sustaining a living, learning, and working environment that is free from sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking.

Sexual misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking will not be tolerated and will be grounds for disciplinary action up to and including permanent dismissal from the university and termination of employment.

The Policy on Sexual Misconduct, Relationship Violence, and Stalking, which became effective August 19, represents a year of review and work involving stakeholders from across campus. The Sexual Misconduct Policy Task Force, made up of faculty, staff, and students, ensured that all feedback and viewpoints were considered in the review of the interim policy first introduced last August. Nine public sessions were held last year, and the diversity of viewpoints represented helped to make the policy stronger, more transparent, and easier to understand.
