Complainant and Respondent Rights and University Responsibilities

Once it has come to the attention of the University that a violation of the Student Policy and Procedure Manual or Employee Policy related to sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, or stalking has occurred, specific efforts are made to support the health, safety, and well-being of both the complainant, respondent, and the University community as a whole.  In addition to the information provided in this document, students or employees who report that they have been a complainant of any of the aforementioned crimes will be provided with a written explanation of all of their rights and options as well as resources.  All of the rights and responsibilities are implemented regardless of whether the complainant chooses to file criminal charges or pursue a formal complaint through the university process.
