Sexual harassment, including sexual violence, is a kind of sex discrimination and is prohibited by Title IX and the University.
UMBC is committed to maintaining a campus environment that is free from discrimination based on sex, and maintains that commitment by responding promptly and effectively when it learns of any form of possible discrimination based on sex. The University responds to reports of sexual harassment, including sexual violence, as part of its efforts to stop the harassment and prevent the recurrence of possible discrimination. In compliance with Title IX, the University has Sexual Misconduct and Sexual Harassment policies. Click here to view the policies.
