Sexual Misconduct Policy—Guiding Principles
Michigan Tech recognizes that sexual misconduct is a growing national problem that affects a significant number of college students. The trauma experienced by the survivors of nonconsensual sexual intercourse, nonconsensual sexual contact, sexual exploitation and mutually incapacitated sexual intercourse and those close to them undermines the trust that is so essential to the educational process. The fact that most incidents of sexual misconduct are committed by people the survivors know and often must continue to interact with is devastating to the individual and, indeed, to the very mission of the University. Michigan Tech is committed to educating our students, faculty, and staff about this topic; to improving our responses; and to working with the surrounding communities to offer as great a variety of services as possible. Michigan Tech’s regulations expressly prohibit violation of this sexual misconduct policy.
