Sexual Misconduct / Sexual Assault and Violence Initiative

The Sexual Assault and Violence Initiative strives to provide sexual assault and misconduct education, awareness building, events and resources for all campus community members. Sexual misconduct is defined as an unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature without consent and includes sexual harassment, sexually hostile environments and sexual violence.

Sexual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, which can include unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, including sexual assault and other acts of sexual violence.

Sexual harassment creates a sexually hostile environment if the conduct is sufficiently serious that it denies or limits the ability to participate in or benefit from a University program.

Sexual violence refers to physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent. A number of different acts fall into this category including rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual abuse, and sexual coercion.
