Sexual Misconduct Policy


Members of Pacific University (the “University”) community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual harassment, violence, and discrimination. All members of the University community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. The University sexual misconduct policy has been developed to reaffirm this expectation and to provide recourse for those individuals whose rights have been violated.

The University is committed to providing a learning environment that affirms the dignity and inherent worth of every member of the University community. The Student Code of Conduct is an overarching set of regulations and procedures designed to protect and foster such a learning environment, and includes within it this Sexual Misconduct Policy. Human Resources policies, including the Faculty and Governance Handbook and Staff Handbook, also include prohibitions on sexual misconduct and discrimination on the basis of sex.

The University maintains a policy of zero tolerance for sexual misconduct regardless of the sexual orientation or gender identity of individuals. Zero tolerance means the University will take steps to address all unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature and will impose sanctions on anyone who violates this policy. Resolution by the University is intended to help bring an end to harassing or discriminatory conduct, prevent recurrence, and address the effects on the survivor and the community. This policy serves (1) as a measure to evaluate if behaviors trespassed on community values and (2) as a guide for students, employees and third parties about the University’s expectations for responsible and respectful sexual communication and interaction.

There are three major components to the University's sexual misconduct policies and procedures as follows:

Sexual Misconduct Policy

Title IX Sexual Misconduct Process

Non-Title IX Student Sexual Misconduct Process

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 as Applied To Colleges and Universities

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which was modeled after Section 504, was signed into law in July 1990, but most provisions did not take effect until January 26, 1992 and July 26, 1992.

Disability Documentation Standards and Eligibilty for Accommodations

The Disability Documentation Standards are the criteria that Pacific University considers when reviewing a students’ documentation of a disability in the course of determining reasonable and appropriate accommodations for the student. Pacific University’s standards are adpated from recommendations from the Association for Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) and the Oregon Association for Higher Education and Disability (ORAHEAD).

Use of the Disability Documentation Standards contrary to Pacific University’s Nondiscrimination Policy is prohibited.

Student Code of Conduct

Pacific University is an academic community – a community where the pursuit of knowledge, understanding and skills are the common ideals, which unite us as its members. An academic community in which students, faculty and staff members come together in voluntary association is based upon the fundamental respect members maintain for themselves and for others. Personal integrity is valued above all else, and each community member is expected to maintain integrity in every situation no matter how trivial. Students are required to engage in responsible social conduct that reflects credit upon the University community and to model good citizenship at all times. Preserving the safety and security of students, faculty, staff, and guests is one of the paramount duties of the University. Responsible membership in the community is exemplified by close attention to the safety of one’s fellow members. Toward these ends, the University has established policies, standards and guidelines that collectively define the Student Code of Conduct.

Nothing in these policies or guidelines is designed, nor should be construed to inhibit students’ abilities to strive for true academic freedom or to think, care, create, and pursue justice in our world.
