Sexual assault is a crime punishable by both civil and criminal legal action and is a serious violation of College policy. Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact without consent or permission by you. It can include touching of private body parts over or under the clothingor any form of penetration. Such behaviors have no place at the College, where people are expected to learn and develop to their full potential.
Through the sexual assault protocol, the College of St. Scholastica seeks to provide a consistent, caring, and timely response when sexual assault occurs within the College community. Support and information will be available to assist students in making and reporting decisions. Programming addressing rape and sexual assault takes place throughout the year.
Students will not be charged with other secondary violations of campus policy in making a report (i.e. violations of campus alcohol policy).
