Student Policy Prohibiting Sexual Harassment, Sexual Violence, Stalking, and Related Misconduct

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is committed to fostering an environment that is safe and secure and free from sexual and gender-based discrimination and harassment, sexual violence, dating and domestic violence, stalking, and other related misconduct. The university recognizes its responsibility to increase awareness of such misconduct, prevent its occurrence, support victims, deal fairly and firmly with offenders, and diligently investigate reports of misconduct. In addressing these issues, all members of the university must come together to respect and care for one another in a manner consistent with our deeply held academic and community values.

This policy applies to student conduct and prohibits a broad range of behaviors focused on sex and/or gender that may or may not be sexual in nature. Sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual exploitation, gender-based harassment, stalking, and relationship violence (including dating and domestic violence) are all forms of misconduct that are prohibited by this policy and will not be tolerated by the university.

The university is committed to the principles of academic freedom and believes that vigorous discussion and debate, as well as free inquiry and free expression, are an integral part of the university community. Nothing in the policy shall be construed to abridge academic freedom and inquiry, principles of free speech, or the university's educational mission.

Descriptions of violations and procedures for addressing violations are described in the policy. The full policy can be found at
