Brown maintains Title IX policies and procedures to address sexual misconduct complaints in a prompt, impartial and unbiased manner, grounded in fairness and support to both complainants and respondents.
Brown has taken a strategic and sustained approach to confronting sexual harassment and gender-based violence on campus dating back to transformative recommendations from the University’s Sexual Assault Task Force in 2015. The University has made it an institutional priority to create an environment in which no incident of sexual violence is tolerated, and the experiences and perspective of students and others impacted by sexual violence have been instrumental in informing procedures and processes.
