As a matter of policy, the faculty, staff and students of the University community will not tolerate sexual misconduct.
Sexual misconduct is defined as sexual contact without consent by an acquaintance or a stranger and includes, but is not limited to: intentional touching without consent, either of the victim or when the victim is forced to touch, directly or through clothing, another person’s genitals, breasts, groin, thighs, buttocks; rape (sexual intercourse without consent whether by an acquaintance or a stranger); aggravated assault; aggravated sodomy (sexual penetration with an object without consent); sodomy (anal or oral intercourse without consent); non-consensual kissing; statutory rape; child molestation; aggravated child molestation; voyeurism; and public indecency. It is a violation of this policy to engage in any form of sexual activity or conduct without the consent of the other person. Such consent may be withdrawn at any time, without regard to activity preceding the withdrawal of consent.
Consent may be found in two forms: actual consent (words, acts, or silence) or apparent consent. Apparent consent must be informed and freely given. The person must act voluntarily and with knowledge of what is occurring. Intoxication, drug use, or other reasons for incapacity are obstacles to consent. A person cannot freely, voluntarily, and with knowledge of the act, be deemed to have consent if she or he is intoxicated, in a drug-induced state, or other wise incapacitated. The perpetrator’s honest but unreasonable belief that the victim has consented does not constitute apparent consent.
