Policy Statement

The University of Florida is committed to providing a safe educational, working, and residential environment that is free from sexual harassment or misconduct directed towards any and all members of the community. To achieve this goal, no behavior of this nature will be tolerated and, if discovered, the procedure for investigation and potential adjudication, as outlined in this policy, will be followed. Similarly, retaliation against an individual who has filed a complaint regarding alleged sexual harassment or misconduct is also against University policy and [the individual(s) involved will be subject to] disciplinary action. The University encourages students, faculty, staff, contracted workers, and visitors to promptly report any suspected behavior that is in violation of this policy.
