How to Report Prohibited Conduct

Reports of Sexual Misconduct

"Sexual Misconduct" is a expansive term encompassing "sexual exploitation," "non-consensual sexual contact," "non-consensual sexual intercourse," "dating violence," "domestic violence", "stalking" and "sexual harassment" as defined in the University's Sexual Misconduct and Title IX Sexual Harassment Regulation. Sexual Misconduct may constitute crimes (e.g., sexual battery, rape and related sex crimes) and/or civil complaints (e.g., sexual harassment) and can occur between strangers or acquaintances, including people involved in an intimate or sexual relationship. Sexual misconduct can be committed by men or by women, and it can occur between people of the same or different sex. The Sexual Misconduct and Title IX Sexual Harassment Regulation governs students, faculty, staff, visitors, and vendors, and includes separate adjudication processes for students and employees. Sections V to XII, Reporting and Addressing Sexual Misconduct through Remedies includes procedures for investigating and resolving reports against University students, faculty, staff, visitors, and vendors. Section XVII, On and Off Campus Contacts to Get Help includes resources, both University operated and located on UNF's campus and Jacksonville community resources.
