Sexual Misconduct, Stalking, and Relationship Violence Policy
Sexual misconduct will not be tolerated at Haverford College. Sexual misconduct is a broad term that includes but is not limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault (non-consensual sexual contact, non-consensual sexual intercourse, and forced sexual intercourse), sexual exploitation, stalking, domestic violence, dating violence, and retaliation. Such behaviors are anathema to Haverford’s foundational principles that underscore human dignity, promote equality, and repudiate violence in any form. If you are in an emergency or crisis situation please call one of the Emergency Contacts.
If you have experienced sexual misconduct, you are encouraged to directly contact anyone listed on the On-Campus or Off-Campus resources pages on the Sexual Misconduct website. If you are in physical danger or have physical injuries which require immediate attention, call Campus Safety or 911. A Safety or police officer will respond right away.
No matter how you choose to address an instance of sexual misconduct, you will be supported by the resources available at Haverford College and in the community. Professionals will work with you to decide how to proceed and ensure that your needs and desires are being met.
