Sexual misconduct behavior includes, but is not limited, to the following:

- Forced sexual intercourse
- Sexual harassment
Physical sexual misconduct includes any non-consensual physical contact of a sexual nature committed by force or intimidation or through the use of the victim’s mental or physical incapacity, including through consumption of drugs or alcohol. Sexual harassment may also include non-physical acts and is further defined in Part I (c) of The Indiana University Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct.
The university reserves the right to take whatever measures it deems necessary in response to an allegation of sexual misconduct in order to protect students’ rights and personal safety.
Different people on campus have different reporting responsibilities, and different abilities to maintain a victim of sexual misconduct’s confidentiality, depending on their roles at the university. A victim should be aware of mandatory reporting policies when consulting campus resources. If a victim of sexual misconduct is unsure of someone’s duties and ability to maintain confidentiality, s/he should ask before talking to them. The University will work with you to protect your privacy by sharing information with only those who need to know.
