Fordham University Policy on Sexual Offenses
Fordham University is committed to the development and support of its primary
educational mission. The University will not tolerate sexual offenses such as rape, sexual
abuse, sexual harassment, or other forms of non-consensual activity, including stalking,
and/or domestic or dating violence. Fordham will take prompt and effective steps
reasonably calculated to end the sexual violence, eliminate the hostile environment, prevent
recurrence and, as appropriate, remedy its effects.
Fordham University supports this policy through educational prevention, counseling, and
medical support services. Educational programs include, but are not limited to,
campus-wide distribution of the CARE brochure; online training for new students; new student
orientation programs related to sexual violence; CARE core program for new students;
peer education workshops on topics that include the nature of sexual offenses and dating
violence, keys to prevention, and coping with the aftermath of an assault; public safety
presentations; residential life presentations; rape awareness programs; individual and group
counseling; and other support services.
Fordham University responds to all sexual offense, stalking, and/or domestic or dating
violence incidents with a trained response team that includes public safety, the dean of
students, the Title IX coordinator, residential life, health services, counseling services, and
off-campus resources as needed.
Fordham University will enforce this policy on sexual offenses through internal student
conduct procedures that are fair, prompt, and impartial. Student conduct cases will be
handled by the respective dean of students on each campus who receives annual Title IX
and sexual misconduct training
