The University of Iowa prohibits sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, and stalking in any form, including sexual assault or sexual harassment, and any form of nonconsensual sexual conduct. Students should be able to live, study, and work in an environment free from all forms of sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, and stalking.
Incidents of sexual misconduct can be reported to the Office of Sexual Misconduct Response Coordinator (OSMRC; https://osmrc.uiowa.edu) or to the Department of Public Safety (https://police.uiowa.edu). If you are uncertain if what you have experienced from a student is sexual misconduct, view the Sexual Misconduct, Dating/Domestic Violence, or Stalking Involving Students (https://opsmanual.uiowa.edu/students/sexual-misconduct-datingdomestic-violence-or-stalking-involving-students) policy. If you are uncertain if what you experienced from a faculty or staff member is sexual harassment, view the Sexual Harassment (https://opsmanual.uiowa.edu/community-policies/sexual-harassment) policy.
Students impacted by a Title IX issue (sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, or stalking) may be eligible to request an academic accommodation. Contact the Office of Sexual Misconduct Response Coordinator (https://osmrc.uiowa.edu) for assistance, definitions, and the full University of Iowa policy.
If you or someone you know experiences sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence, stalking, or any other behaviors prohibited under this policy, you are strongly encouraged to seek assistance and support. Information about confidential resources (see the Confidential Resources: Where to Start video for an explanation) can be found here, Confidential Resources for Students (https://osmrc.uiowa.edu/victim-resources/confidential-support). This includes the University Ombudsperson Office, which serves as a safe place to talk about any concerns, including but not limited to sexual harassment or misconduct, discrimination, violation of policies, and unethical behavior (https://uiowa.edu/ombuds/).
