Non-Consensual or Forced Sexual Contact

Any individual found responsible for violating the policy on Non-Consensual or Forced Sexual Contact (where no intercourse has occurred) will likely receive a sanction ranging from probation to termination/expulsion, depending on the severity of the incident, and taking into account any previous campus conduct code violations.*
