Policy

Sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual exploitation, intimate partner violence and stalking are violations of the 大学的民权政策和程序 and its sexual misconduct policy. 一些联邦法律法规, including Title IX, the Violence Against Women Act and the Clery Act mandate how institutions respond to such allegations. 许多类型的不当性行为也违反了内布拉斯加州的法律.

校园社区的成员,客人和访客都有权免受不当性行为的侵害. All members of the community must conduct themselves in a way that does not infringe upon the rights of others. The college’s sexual misconduct policy is intended to define expectations for appropriate conduct and outline resolution processes to address conduct that does not meet these expectations. 当被指控性行为不端的个人被发现违反了政策, 学院将对其进行严厉制裁, as noted on the What is Sexual Harassment page.

All members of the campus community, guests and visitors are protected by this policy regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The college has jurisdiction over all acts of sexual misconduct involving members of the campus community no matter where they occur, whether on- or off-campus. 有关此政策的更多详情,请参阅 大学的民权政策和程序.
