Sexual Misconduct Bill of Rights

Sexual Misconduct Bill of Rights

 

When filing a complaint of sexual misconduct with the Director of Student Relations, we assert that student victims have the following rights:

  • To have any allegation of sexual misconduct treated seriously.
  • To be treated with dignity.
  • To be free from any suggestion that the actions or choices of the victim caused the violation of the student conduct code.
  • To be free from pressure from campus personnel to report student conduct code violations if the victim does not wish to do so.
  • To be free from pressure from campus personnel to refrain from reporting the crime to avoid unwanted publicity.
  • To be free from student conduct code sanctions for students who were victims of sexual assault but may have violated university alcohol policies.
  • To be provided with all reporting and support resources.

Both the victim and accused student have the following rights:

  • To be informed of the Student Code of Conduct and hearing processes.
  • To have others present for support during the student conduct hearing
  • To be informed of the outcome of any disciplinary proceeding.
  • To be offered confidential counseling services at the EOU Counseling Center.
  • To be given the opportunity to request a change in on-campus housing if current housing feels unsafe.
  • To not be harassed by the other party or anyone else on campus.
  • To be given the opportunity to have a no-contact restriction from the other and/or a third party.
