At the University of Delaware, we strive to create and maintain a campus community where respect and personal safety are valued by everyone and where community members work individually and together to ensure a safe environment. The University has clear policies in place intended to keep the University community free from sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence. This ensures a safe and nondiscriminatory environment that protects the rights of students, faculty, staff, vendors, guests, visitors and volunteers.
We work toward that vision through a number of campus efforts:
- Prevention and awareness programs for students, faculty and staff;
- Educating students, faculty and staff about our resources, policies and processes and bystander intervention methods;
- Providing services that support victims and meet their needs;
- Enforcing campus policies, state and local laws around sexual misconduct; and
- Sending out timely alerts to inform the campus and community about known crimes.
