SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

The University of Florida is committed to providing a safe educational, working, and residential environment that is free from sexual harassment or misconduct directed towards any and all members of the community. To achieve this goal, no behavior of this nature will be tolerated and, if discovered, the procedure for investigation and potential adjudication, as outlined in this policy, will be followed. Similarly, and retaliation against an individual who has filed a complaint regarding an alleged sexual harassment or misconduct is also against university policy and will face its own disciplinary procedure. The University encourages students, faculty, staff, contracted workers, and visitors to promptly report any suspected behavior that is in violation of this policy. Specifically College of Medicine students are encouraged to report this behavior to the College of Medicine administration including the Senior Associate, Associate, or Assistant Deans or directly to the Title IX office. Title IX is a federal law addressing sexual misconduct. For more information or to report sexual misconduct refer to the UF Title IX page.  For confidential consultation, students are encouraged to speak with a mental health provider within the medical school, Counseling and Wellness Center, Dean of Students’ Care area, or at the UPD Victims’ Advocate office.
