Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

Sexual misconduct endangers an environment of mutual respect and is considered an act of aggression and coercion, not an expression of sexual intimacy. Sexual intimacy requires effective consent. The College is committed to maintaining an environment free of sexual violence and in which the freedom to make individual choices regarding sexual behavior is respected by all. Sexual misconduct, as defined by this policy, includes a broad range of behavior including inappropriate physical touching, sexual exploitation, and sexual intercourse without consent, as well as other forms of sexual violence including sexual assault. Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination and may also be a crime.

Sexual misconduct by anyone associated with the College is unacceptable and will be addressed in a timely fashion and with serious consequences by the College.
