Sexual Misconduct

Michigan Tech University strongly supports and encourages prompt reporting of sexual misconduct. Reporting provides resources to victims and contributes to keeping the campus safe.

Sexual misconduct is a broad range of behavior that includes but is not limited to non-consensual sexual intercourse, non-consensual sexual contact, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, relationship violence, and stalking. Sometimes students are unsure if what they or their friends experienced was sexual misconduct.

If you believe you or someone you know has been the victim of sexual misconduct or if you are unsure and have questions, you should promptly report the incident(s) to Public Safety and Police Services or report to one of the Title IX Deputy Coordinators or the University Title IX Coordinator.
