Sexual Misconduct Procedures
In recognition of Georgetown University’s commitment to provide a safe and hospitable environment for all members of our community to work and study, the University prohibits sexual misconduct that constitutes sexual harassment, sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, and related claims of retaliation. Sexual misconduct subverts the University’s mission, diminishes the dignity of both Complainant and Respondent, and threatens permanent damage to the careers, educational experience, and well-being of our students, faculty and staff.
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination and is prohibited by University policy, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”), Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), and the District of Columbia Human Rights Act. Sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking are also forms of sexual misconduct, and are prohibited by law and this policy.
