Sexual Misconduct Syllabus Statement

Sexual Misconduct Syllabus Statement


As your instructor, one of my responsibilities is to create a positive learning environment for all students. IU policy prohibits sexual misconduct in any form, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, sexual exploitation, and dating and domestic violence.  If you have experienced sexual misconduct, or know someone who has, the University can help. If you are seeking help and would like to speak to someone confidentially, you can make an appointment with the Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) KC210D by calling 765-455-9203 or 765-455-9553, or email

It is also important that you know that because of my role, University policy requires me to share information brought to my attention about potential sexual misconduct with the campus Deputy Sexual Misconduct & Title IX Coordinator or the University Sexual Misconduct & Title IX Coordinator.  In that event, those individuals will work to ensure that appropriate measures are taken and resources are made available. Protecting student privacy is of utmost concern, and information will only be shared with those that need to know to ensure the University can respond and assist.  I encourage you to visit to learn more.

Indiana University also prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, color, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

If you feel like you have experienced discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct and wish to make a report, please contact Chief Diversity Officer, Sarah Sarber, 765-455-9316, or make a report through the online reporting form here.
