Gender-based and Sexual Misconduct Policy
UAA has a zero-tolerance policy for gender-based and sexual misconduct. Faculty, staff and students of the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) as well as our community and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of gender and sex-based discrimination, including sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. UAA expects all members of the community to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.
UAA prohibits rape, acquaintance rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence. In the event that a sexual assault, act of stalking, dating violence or domestic violence does occur, UAA takes the matter very seriously. UAA will take steps to stop the behavior, prevent its recurrence, and provide remedies for victims.
Sexual assault is not about sex. Sexual assault is a crime of power and control. Whatever the circumstances, no one deserves to be sexually assaulted.
