Sexual Harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature.

Sexual Violence is a form of sexual harassment prohibited by Title IX and refers to physical acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent, such as due to the survivor’s use of drugs or alcohol, or due to an intellectual or other disability. Sexual violence includes: rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual coercion, and intimate partner violence.

Dating Violence is violence committed by a person who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the survivor.

Intimate Partner Violence includes felony or misdemeanor crimes of violence committed by a current or former spouse of the survivor, by a person with whom the survivor shares a child in common, by a person who is cohabitating with the survivor as a spouse.
