Sexual Misconduct

Rensselaer is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy learning, living, and working environment in which no member of the Rensselaer community is, on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any Institute program or activity. Gender-based and sexual-based harassment, including Sexual Misconduct and Sexual Violence, are forms of illegal discrimination in that they deny or limit an individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from the Institute’s programs or activities.

In support of our basic principles, a sexual misconduct awareness website is designed to provide you with education about Rensselaer's Student Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures, resources and the ability to report incidents of sexual misconduct, sexual assault, and sexual harassment.

Also, an individual can report an incident to the Department of Public Safety (available 24 hours daily), a Title IX Coordinator, a Portfolio Title IX Liaison, the Dean of Students, the Vice Provost and Dean for Undergraduate Education, the Vice Provost and Dean for Graduate Education, or the Student Health Center. We have assembled a list of campus contact resources that are available to you if you are ever the victim of any form of sexual misconduct.
