Incidents of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct can be reported to the Office of Sexual Misconduct Response Coordinator (OSMRC) or to the Department of Public Safety. See Interim Policy on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct to learn about conduct prohibited under university policy and options for addressing concerns. You may also contact the OSMRC discuss options and resources.
Students impacted by sexual harassment or sexual misconduct may request supportive measures including academic or housing accommodations. Contact the OSMRC for assistance and/or more information.
If you or someone you know experiences sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, you are strongly encouraged to seek assistance and support.
