Reports on Discrimination and Harassment, Sexual Misconduct

Released 6/16/2021

The University is committed to providing a safe environment for the campus community to work, learn, live, and socialize together without fear of sexual assault, harassment, or discrimination. As part of that mission, the Office of Equity and Inclusion recently released two reports:

  1. Discrimination and Harassment: Prevention and Response Across the University serves to educate the University community about efforts to prevent discrimination and harassment and how the University responds to incidents
  2. Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response is published to inform the community about the University’s efforts to prevent, detect, and respond to reports of sexual misconduct.

These reports include data from 2018 to 2020. Subsequent reports will be released annually in October. If you need additional information, contact the Office of Equity and Inclusion.
