Sexual Misconduct Policy

The University of Miami is committed to fostering an environment in which its students, faculty and staff are free from sexual misconduct (which includes sex-based discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking) and other illegal discriminatory practices. These behaviors impede learning, living, and working conditions and, therefore, are not tolerated.

The University has developed policies and procedures to ensure the safety and well-being of all members of the University community in compliance with applicable laws.

The University of Miami's Sexual Misconduct Policy applies to all members of the University community, including students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The procedures for investigation and adjudication of complaints is determined by the status of the individual who is alleged to have engaged in sexual misconduct ("Respondent").
