Title IX Sexual Misconduct

Fordham University is committed to a learning, living, and work environment free of any kind of sexual violence or misconduct, including:

rape stalking
sexual assault sexual exploitation
sexual harassment sex discrimination
domestic and dating violence gender discrimination

Such behaviors are strictly prohibited by the University, as is any form of intimidation and retaliation for reporting such instances.

Fordham will take prompt steps reasonably calculated to end the sexual violence, eliminate any hostile environment, prevent recurrence and, as appropriate, remedy any effects.

Fordham University responds to all sexual offenses, stalking, domestic violence and dating violence incidents with a trained response team that includes the Department of Public Safety officers, the Deputy Title IX Coordinator, the deans of students, and the Title IX Coordinator, and where appropriate, staff from Residential Life, Health Services, Counseling Services, and other, off-campus resources. Please see Reporting an Incident for more information.

Fordham will enforce its policies on sexual offenses through internal conduct procedures that are fair, prompt, and impartial. Student conduct cases will be handled by the respective deans of students on each campus (or the dean's designee), while employee conduct cases will be handled by the Title IX Coordinator (or the Title IX coordinator's designee). Please see the University's Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures for more information.
