Booth University College promotes a safe and supportive community in which healthy relationships can thrive. In this environment, sexual violence in any form is prohibited. Sexual violence is any sexual activity where consent is not freely given. This includes completed or attempted sex acts that are against the victim’s will or involve a victim who is unable to consent through the use of force or alcohol/drug facilitation.
Other forms of sexual violence are:
- Non-physically pressured unwanted sex
- Unwanted sexual contact (intentional sexual touching), or
- Non-contact, unwanted sexual experiences (such as verbal sexual harassment)
Booth UC takes sexual violence (SV) seriously. Anyone who has experienced sexual violence may talk with a Booth UC staff or faculty member to receive institutional support and accommodation. This individual may also choose to file a complaint to Booth UC against the person who has sexually assaulted them. The institution reserves the right to investigate complaints, take any appropriate actions deemed necessary, and, when warranted, inform local law enforcement authorities.
