Sexual Misconduct and Interpersonal Violence (Title IX)

Elon University strives to provide a safe environment for the campus community and support the institution’s educational mission at all times. Elon University does not tolerate acts of sexual harassment, interpersonal violence, sexual misconduct, and sex and/or gender based discrimination. All members of our community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects personal integrity and a respect for others.

Elon University recognizes the serious and negative impacts sexual and interpersonal violence and harassment have on individuals and the University community. To that end, the University endeavors to eliminate and prevent them and address their effects. This policy outlines how the University receives, investigates, responds to, and resolves complaints of sexual misconduct, interpersonal violence, and sex and/or gender based discrimination and harassment as defined herein whether occurring on or off campus regardless of whether the Responding Party, as defined in this policy, is a student, faculty member, staff, or third party.

Students, staff, and faculty are strongly encouraged to report any and all instances of sexual harassment, sexual and/or interpersonal violence, and gender-based discrimination to Elon University Campus Safety and Police or the Title IX Coordinator. Additional reporting choices, including a list of confidential options, can be found in Reporting and Resources. When an allegation of sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence is brought to the attention of an appropriate university official, protective and other remedial measures will be used to reasonably ensure that such conduct ends, is not repeated, and the effects on the victim and community are remedied, including sanctions when a responding party is found to have violated this policy.
