Sexual and Interpersonal Misconduct

Drake University strives to create a respectful, safe, and non-threatening environment where its members are able to live, study, and work free from sexual and interpersonal misconduct. In keeping with this goal, the University has adopted certain policies prohibiting sexual misconduct (including sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sexual exploitation), and interpersonal misconduct (domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking). The Policy on Sexual and Interpersonal Misconduct and Notification of Complainant’s Rights is intended to notify victims/survivors of their rights and resources that are available to them when Sexual and/or Interpersonal Misconduct occurs.

Questions about this document, any related policy or procedure, making a report, or requesting accommodations to academic, living, working, and/or transportation arrangements, may be directed to any of the following:
