Sexual Misconduct

What is sexual misconduct?

The term sexual misconduct includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.


JHU Sexual Assault Response and Prevention

If you have been sexually assaulted or are a victim of other sexual misconduct, we urge you to get medical care and reach out to a counselor for emotional support. We also stand ready to assist you with a complaint through JHU and/or local law enforcement and encourage you to submit one. In addition, the university has a range of resources to raise awareness on these issues.

Filing a Sexual Misconduct Complaint

Community members are encouraged to report sexual misconduct to the JHU Office of Institutional Equity (OIE). OIE assesses sexual misconduct complaints filed by students, staff and faculty, and is committed to handling reports of sexual misconduct with discretion and sensitivity.
