Title IX / Sexual Respect

Sexual Misconduct Policy
Case Western Reserve University is a community based upon trust and respect for its constituent members. Sexual misconduct is a violation of that trust and respect and will not be tolerated. Members of the Case Western Reserve community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual misconduct, as well as domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. All members of the community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. The purpose of this guide is to define sexual misconduct and the procedures the university uses to investigate and take appropriate action on complaints of sexual misconduct.

This policy applies to all members of the university community including all students, postdoctoral fellows and postdoctoral scholars, faculty, staff (including administrators) and other university officials—whether full or part-time—and guest lecturers, volunteers, contractors and visitors. This policy is applicable to a student on the date on which the student accepts admission to the university.
