Sex Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy

Princeton University does not tolerate sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct is harmful to the well-being of our community members, the learning/working environment, and collegial relationships among our students, faculty, and staff. All forms of sexual misconduct are regarded as serious University offenses, and violations are likely to result in discipline, including the possibility of suspension, expulsion, or termination of employment. State and federal laws also address conduct that may meet the University’s definition of sexual misconduct, and criminal prosecution may take place independently of any disciplinary action instituted by the University. In seeking to create a community free from sexual misconduct, the University expects all members of the community to take responsibility for their actions in the realm of sexual activity and encourages the reporting of sexual misconduct.
