The university policy on Preventing and Addressing Sexual Misconduct (PDF, Download of Adobe® Reader® required) is intended to promote an environment at Temple University that is free of sexual assaults, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual exploitation, as well as one that is consistent with other constitutional protections and personal freedoms.
Specifically, the policy provides for:
- Comprehensive education and prevention programs that inform the university community about the risks and myths that contribute to sexual assaults, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
- Procedures sensitive to victims in responding to reports of alleged sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual exploitation, including informing victims about their right to file criminal charges as well as the availability of medical, counseling and support services, and alternative remedies such as housing and academic accommodation, if reasonably available.
- University disciplinary sanctions for those who commit sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual exploitation.
