What is Sexual Misconduct?

Sexual misconduct is a broad term that encompasses a range of behaviors including sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape. Everyone in a community is affected by sexual misconduct.

By being active bystanders we can all notice the behaviors and warning signs and help our friends, fellow students, visitors and community members by creating a community where people are respected and cared for.

Victims of sexual assault or other violence should be encouraged to obtain immediate medical attention by contacting the UMass Dartmouth Department of Public Safety or accessing other resources on or off campus including University Health Services, the Center for Women, Gender and Sexuality, and/or the Counseling Center.
