Sexual Misconduct Policy

Oberlin College seeks to ensure an equitable and inclusive campus free of violence, harassment, and discrimination. Therefore, Oberlin College will not tolerate sexual and or gender-based harassment, discrimination and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence, in any college program or activity, including the academic, employment or residential setting. When used in this policy, sexual misconduct includes sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and stalking. This prohibition also includes all forms of discrimination or harassment based on sex, marital status, sexual orientation, and or gender identity and expression. Such conduct violates community expectations and is prohibited by state and federal law. The Sexual Misconduct Policy affirms the Oberlin community's commitment to these principles and describes the process the college uses to resolve reports of sexual misconduct.

Oberlin College students, employees, alumni, guests, and visitors have the right to be free from sexual and or gender-based harassment, discrimination and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence, on campus and in their interactions with each other. Sexual misconduct is the term used in this policy for sexual and or gender-based harassment, discrimination and violence, including sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence, as well as other forms of prohibited conduct as defined in this policy.

Because all members of the Oberlin community have a right to and a stake in creating a campus free of violence, harassment, and discrimination, this policy applies to all students, employees, and visitors to campus.
