Students

The Dean of Students office strives to maintain a safe learning environment by addressing non-acceptable behaviors on campus. If you, or someone you know, has been the victim of sexual misconduct, this page will help you navigate available reporting options.

Sexual misconduct can occur in any University sponsored program, both on-campus and off-campus. Sexual misconduct is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature without consent and includes sexual harassment, sexually hostile environments and sexual violence.
