It takes commitment and action on the part of all members of the university community to assure JMU is a learning, working and living environment free from gender and sex-based discrimination including sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. It is important for all community members to know and understand what behaviors constitute sexual harassment and sexual misconduct to be able to prevent the behavior and to respond appropriately to individuals who have experienced harm. This means that everyone at JMU is responsible for knowing and understanding these definitions. 

JMU currently has three policies that address sexual misconduct, harassment and discrimination that apply to all students and employees. 

Policy 1324 Discrimination and Harassment covers discrimination based on a person's age, color, disability, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, parental status, political affiliation, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or veteran status.  The Office of Equal Opportunity is where you would report an incident or concern pertaining to this policy.

Policy 1346 Title IX Sexual Harassment covers sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking that occurs within university programs and activities in the United States.  The Title IX Office is where you would report an incident or concern pertaining to this policy.

Policy 1340 Sexual Misconduct covers sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and non-consensual relationships that do not fall within the scope of Policey 1346.  The Title IX Office is where you would report an incident or concern pertaining to this policy.
