SUU is committed to maintaining an educational and working environment free from discrimination and harassment, including providing an environment in which no student, faculty or staff member is excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of its programs and activities as a result of one’s gender. The university has an obligation to take immediate and effective steps to eliminate discrimination (including gender discrimination and sexual misconduct), prevent its recurrence, and remedy its effects. At SUU, we aim to reduce the occurrence of sexual misconduct on campus by creating a community that does not tolerate this behavior.
