Retaliation

Retaliation related to complaints or reports of sexual misconduct is addressed in the Sexual Misconduct policy.

The university will not tolerate retaliation in any form against any individual who makes an allegation, files a report, serves as a witness, assists a complainant, or participates in an investigation of discrimination or harassment. University policy and state and federal law prohibit retaliation against an individual for reporting discrimination or harassment, or for participating in an investigation. Retaliation is a serious violation that can subject the offender to discipline, up to and including termination of employment and/or student status, independent of the merits of the underlying allegation.

Allegations of retaliation should be directed to the Title IX coordinator or deputy coordinator.
