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 misconduct. Sexual Misconduct is the umbrella term the university uses to refer to a series of behaviors that are all forms of sex-based discrimination. It is important for all community members to know and understand what behaviors constitute sexual misconduct to be able to prevent the behavior and to respond appropriately to individuals who have experienced the harm of sexual misconduct. This means that everyone at JMU is responsible for knowing and understanding these definitions. The definitions we adhere to as a community and the process and procedures the university follows in responding to instances of sexual misconduct are detailed and outlined in JMU Policy 1346 – Title IX Sexual Harassment.
