Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures

I. Policy Statement

Fordham University is committed to the development and support of its primary educational mission. In furtherance of the University’s mission and in accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), as amended by the Violence Against Women Act/Campus Sexual Violence Act (“Campus SaVE Act”), and Article 129-B of the New York State Education Law, the University is committed to maintaining a community free from all forms of sex discrimination, including sexual misconduct.

The University will not tolerate any form of sexual misconduct such as rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, or other forms of non-consensual activity, including stalking, and/or domestic violence or dating violence, sexual exploitation and other sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct can occur between strangers, acquaintances, or people who know each other well, including those who are involved in an intimate or sexual relationship, and can be committed by anyone regardless of sex, gender, or gender identity. 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.
