Sexual assault, sexual misconduct and “having sex” are not the same.
Anyone can be a victim of sexual assault or other sexual misconduct, including women, men, and children. Perpetrators of sexual assault may be anyone: a stranger, a recent acquaintance, or someone known for a long time.
Christian Brothers University insists that all members of its community shall be able to pursue their interests free from sexual assault, sexual misconduct, stalking, bullying and other forms of sexual harassment. This policy pertains to incidents of sexual assault and sexual misconduct between students or where the respondent to an investigation is a student. To report a possible violation of this policy when the alleged perpetrator is a faculty or staff member, contact the Director of Human Resources at (901) 321-3474.
Students may report incidents of sexual misconduct, including rape or other forms of sexual assault, to any employee. Only Counseling Center staff members may keep such reports confidential; all other employees—faculty as well as staff—are mandatory reporters to one of the University’s responsible employees. CBU encourages students to report incidents to the Dean of Students Office at (901) 321-3536 or the Title IX Coordinator/Associate Vice President for Student Life at (901) 321-3548. Both offices are located in the Rozier Student Life Suite if someone wishes to make a report in person or ask questions.
