Background

[horizontal rule]

ASU is committed to providing a learning and living environment in which members of the university community can achieve their goals and maximum potential. When students experience acts of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault and/or relationship violence, their sense of safety and trust is violated. This can significantly interfere with their lives, including their educational goals. In consultation with various university departments, this policy has been developed to proactively create a campus environment in which incidents of  sexual misconduct, including sexual assault and relationship violence, can be effectively responded to without further victimization.

Policy

ASU is committed to providing assistance to students harmed by sexual misconduct, including sexual assault and relationship violence and does so through a variety of services. For information and resources, see ASU Wellness, Sexual Violence Help page. Students must be advised that the university, when made aware, will independently investigate all allegations of sexual misconduct to the extent possible and necessary to protect the university community. Students, to the extent permitted by law, do not have to commit to taking any kind of action.

Recommended actions for ASU student victims of sexual violence can be found at ASU Wellness, Sexual Violence Help page

ASU and Community Resources for responding to sexual misconduct, including sexual assault and relationship violence can be found at ASU Wellness, Sexual Violence Support and Resource page.
