Sexual Misconduct Policy

The University of Delaware prohibits sex discrimination, sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking by anyone on University property. The University also prohibits such conduct committed by students, faculty, staff, volunteers, or vendors off University property, if:

  • The conduct was in connection with a University or University-recognized program or activity;
  • The conduct may have the effect of creating a hostile environment for a member of the University community;
  • The respondent’s conduct disrupts the normal functions and processes of the University and is egregiously offensive to the University’s mission; or
  • The respondent’s continued presence on campus poses a serious threat to persons or property, regardless of where the activity occurred.

This policy is intended to keep the University community free from sexual misconduct and is designed to ensure a safe and non-discriminatory environment that protects the constitutional and civil rights of students, faculty and staff, as well as vendors, guests, visitors and volunteers, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
