Southwestern University

University Sexual Misconduct Policy

The University’s Sexual Misconduct Policy is comprised of two component parts:

I.  Sexual Harassment Policy

II. Student Sexual Misconduct Policy

In cases where one or more involved parties are University employees, the Sexual Harassment Policy will apply.

Each of the component parts of the Policy will be reviewed and updated in accordance with the regular review processes within the University’s governance and administrative processes. 

Under certain circumstances and with some conditions, violations of this policy will qualify as “Sexual Harassment” as defined by implementing regulations for Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (see 34 C.F.R. § 106 et seq.). Those violations will be addressed under the separate “Title IX Policy.” All other violations will be addressed under this policy.
