The Student Conduct Code details the standards of how students should treat each other. These definitions are for the purpose of understanding the Student Conduct Code in relation to sexual misconduct. Knowing these definitions may help you understand how an experience you have had may correspond to a violation of the Student Conduct Code.

We also offer definitions through our Safe website. When someone is harmed, it can be hard to put a name on what they experienced and the person harmed is the only one who has the right to define what happened. We hope, however, by providing some definitions of sexual assaultdating violence and stalking and gender-based bullying, students will understand what we mean when we use these terms.
