Procedures for Reports of Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct

The University of Virginia (the “University”) is committed to providing a safe and non-discriminatory environment for all members of the University community. The University prohibits Quid Pro Quo Harassment, Sexual and/or Gender-Based Hostile Environment Harassment, Non-Consensual Sexual Contact, Non-Consensual Sexual Intercourse, Sexual Exploitation, Intimate Partner Violence, Stalking, Retaliation, and Complicity (together "Sexual and Gender-Based Prohibited Conduct"). These forms of Prohibited Conduct are defined in the University's Policy on Title IX Harassment and Sexual and Gender-Based Misconduct (the "Sexual Misconduct Policy"). This Appendix identifies the procedures (the "Misconduct Procedures") the University follows when it receives a report alleging Sexual and Gender-Based Prohibited Conduct by a Student or Employee.[1] The University uses these Procedures to respond to, investigate, and adjudicate any such allegations and to impose disciplinary sanctions against Students and Employees found responsible for violating the Sexual Misconduct Policy with regard to Sexual and Gender-Based Prohibited Conduct.[2]
