University Policy

The University of Chicago is a community of scholars dedicated to research, academic excellence, and the pursuit and cultivation of learning. Every member of the University – student, faculty, and staff – makes a commitment to strive for personal and academic integrity; to treat others with dignity and respect; to honor the rights and property of others; to take responsibility for individual and group behavior; and to act as a responsible citizen in a free academic community and in the larger society. Any student conduct, on or off campus, of individuals or groups, that threatens or violates this commitment may become a matter for action within the University’s system of student discipline.

The University will evaluate reports of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct under one of two polices:

Policy on Title IX Sexual Harassment

Policy on Harassment, Discrimination, and Sexual Misconduct 

In addition to the definition of consent in the University's policies, the following resources may be helpful in facilitating understanding of what constitutes consent. All resources may be printed and used by members of the campus community.
