Sexual Violence, Relationship Violence and Stalking Awareness

students

UConn is committed to creating and maintaining a campus environment free from all forms of sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence and stalking. The intent of the Title IX website is to raise awareness and to provide information, support and resources to anyone impacted.

As a University, we are committed to ensuring compliance with Title IX, a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on the sex (gender) of employees and students.

It is important for victim-survivors to know that resources can offer assistance even if you do not file a report or press charges. This includes help with medical and counseling services, academic and housing support, referrals to legal and confidential advocacy organizations, and assistance with working, visa and immigration, transportation, financial aid matters and more.  The What to do when a student reports sexual violence, relationship violence and/or stalking document outlines the process and provides resources for assisting students and fulfilling the University’s reporting requirements for employees.

The University of Connecticut does not tolerate discrimination, harassment or sexual violence of any kind. This prohibition is further explained in the University’s Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment, and Related Interpersonal Violence. To ensure compliance with Title IX and other federal and state civil rights laws, the University has designated Elizabeth Conklin as the University’s Title IX Coordinator. Elizabeth is charged with monitoring compliance with Title IX and ensuring that reports of sexual violence, relationship violence and stalking are investigated and addressed by the University. For more information regarding sexual violence, relationship violence and stalking, please visit www.titleix.uconn.edu.

Any student, faculty, or staff member with questions or concerns about the applicable University policies or who believes that he or she has been the victim of sexual violence, relationship violence or stalking is encouraged to contact the University’s Office of Diversity and Equity.
