-Prohibition Against Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct

Generally, most Universities prohibit all forms of Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct as defined by their title IX policy as well as by applicable state law.  Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct is a broad term that includes Sexual Harassment, Sexual Violence (non-consensual sexual contact and non-consensual sexual intercourse), Sexual Assault, Sexual Exploitation, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Stalking, and aiding or facilitating the commission of a violation of this Policy.

Institutions will also prohibits Hostile Environment Harassment, which includes acts of verbal, non-verbal, or physical aggression, intimidation, or hostility based on sex, gender identity, or gender expression, even if those acts do not involve conduct of a sexual nature.

Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct can occur between people of different sex or gender or of the same sex or gender. All members of a University community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.

-Anti-Retaliation and Intimidation

In addition, a University will strictly prohibit Retaliation against anyone who files a complaint, serves as a witness, or otherwise participates in the enforcement of the title IX policy.  A University will not allow threats or other forms of Retaliation or Intimidation against any students, employees, or any Third Party who files a complaint or participates in the enforcement of any title IX investigation
