Sexual Respect

Grinnell College expects that all members of the College community — students, faculty, staff, and guests — be able to pursue their work and education in a safe environment, free from sexual harassment, violence, or intimidation.  The College is committed to fostering a safe campus environment that promotes sexual respect and where sexual misconduct and violence are unacceptable.  All members of the College community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the opportunities and rights of others.

If You Experience A Form of Prohibited Behavior

We encourage all members of our campus community to seek support for and report all sexual harassment and sexual misconduct directly to the Title IX Coordinator.
