Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures

The University of St. Thomas (UST) mission and convictions embody UST’s commitment to promote and protect the personal dignity and well-being of every member of the UST community. Sexual harassment, sexual assault and other forms of sexual misconduct are antithetical to the commitment. Moreover, they constitute unlawful sex discrimination. All forms of sexual misconduct are prohibited by UST.

The UST mission and convictions also embody UST’s strong commitment to academic freedom, rigorous thinking and the free and full pursuit of knowledge and truth by every member of the UST community. The prohibition on sexual misconduct is critical to and consistent with these commitments. UST cannot achieve its educational objectives in an environment in which sexual harassment or other forms of sexual misconduct are tolerated.
