Policy Prohibiting Sex-Based Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct

The University of Puget Sound recognizes that sexual discrimination and harassment destroys the respect, dignity, and trust necessary to form a vibrant community. The university therefore prohibits all forms of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, sex-based discrimination, unwelcome sexual contact, sexual exploitation, stalking, intimate partner violence, and all other forms of non consensual sexual conduct (collectively, “sexual misconduct”). This policy is adopted to help ensure that University Community Members are able to learn, work, and participate in the university’s Education Programs and Activities free from sexual discrimination or harassment.
