Sexual misconduct that affects the educational or employment environment is a form of sexual discrimination. Such conduct violates University Policy, and generally also violates federal, state, or local laws. The University of Pittsburgh is committed to the maintenance of a community free from all forms of sexual misconduct, and this University Policy extends to the entire University community, including all faculty, researchers, staff, students, vendors, contractors, and visitors to the University.
It is also a violation of University Policy for any employee or student at the University to attempt to retaliate against a person who makes a claim of sexual misconduct.
For relevant procedures; training, reporting, and other resources; and additional information, please refer to University Policy CS20 Sexual Misconduct (formerly 06-05-01).
