Questions and Answers on Title IX and Sexual Violence
Below are common questions and answers related to sexual violence and Title IX. If you have any additional questions or want to speak with someone in person, please contact the Dean of Students Office at (248) 370-3352 or the Title IX Coordinator at (248) 370-3496.
The best way to describe what is “unwelcome” or “without consent” is to describe what consent is and is not:
- Consent is an affirmation, unambiguous, and a conscious decision by each participant to engage in mutually agreed upon sexual activity.
- Consent is revocable and can be withdrawn at any time.
- Consent to some form of sexual activity does not imply consent to other forms of sexual activity.
- Consent to sexual activity on one occasion is not consent to engage in sexual activity on another occasion.
- Silence does not imply consent.
- Consent to engage in sexual activity with one person does not imply consent to engage in sexual activity with another.
- If coercion, intimidation, threats, or physical force are used there is no consent.
- If a person is underage there is no consent.
- If a person is mentally or physically incapacitated so that they cannot understand the fact, nature or extent of the sexual situation, there is no consent. This includes incapacitation due to alcohol or drug consumption, or being asleep or unconscious.

Anyone who experiences, witnesses or learns of sexual misconduct is strongly encouraged to report the situation to the University. The person reporting does not have to be the target. The OUPD is the first responder to any immediate safety concerns.
If you are a faculty or staff member and you become aware of a student that has been a victimized, you must report the incident to:
- The Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives; or
- The Dean of Students Office
