Policy on Sexual Assault

This policy has been revised and is now titled Sexual Misconduct Policy.

Northeastern Illinois University does not tolerate sexual assault, which is a specific type of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Northeastern cooperates fully with legal authorities in preventing and prosecuting sexual assault offenses, and imposes strict sanctions against those found responsible for sexual assault. The University offers educational programs and resources designed to promote the awareness and prevention of sexual assault at all Northeastern locations. Northeastern recognizes that victims and offenders can be any gender, including transgender, and expects members of the University community to help maintain a safe environment. 

This policy furthers Northeastern’s commitment to providing locations that are safe and secure from sexual assault. The purpose of this policy is to advance Northeastern’s long-held position that sexual assault is a criminal act that violates the standards of our community and is unacceptable.
