Sexual Misconduct

Duke is committed to encouraging and sustaining a living and learning community that is free from harassment, violence, and discrimination. Consistent with this commitment, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex/gender in any of the institution’s programs or activities, Duke has developed a comprehensive Student Sexual Misconduct Policy, which is applicable to all students, as well as a Duke Harassment Policy, which is applicable to all students, faculty, and staff (including teaching assistants), even while they are abroad.
