The University of Notre Dame strives to maintain a community characterized by a respect for others. At a minimum, this means a community that is free from sexual and discriminatory harassment. Our culture of respect means that no type of sexual or discriminatory harassment is tolerated, and all incidents of intolerant or disrespectful conduct reported to a non-confidential resource will be addressed. The University is dedicated to responding quickly and thoroughly to all reports of sexual or discriminatory harassment, and to enforcing the University's Non-Retaliation Policy to protect those who report and/or are involved in an investigation of sexual or discriminatory harassment.
For more information, please read:
- The University’s Policy on Sexual and Discriminatory Harassment applies to all faculty, staff, and students. The policy includes definitions of what constitutes sexual harassment (including sexual assault, non-consensual sexual contact, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, other forms of sexual misconduct, or conduct that creates a hostile environment). These definitions also appear in du Lac: A Guide to Student Life, Notre Dame's student handbook.
- Reporting and response procedures when the offender is a student (as found in du Lac: A Guide to Student Life)
- Reporting and response procedures when the offender is a faculty, staff, member, or third party
