Relationship Violence, Sexual Misconduct, and Stalking Sample Syllabus Language (Optional)
Our University is committed to fostering a safe, productive educational and work environment. Title IX and our Relationship Violence, Sexual Misconduct, and Stalking Policy prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex. This includes relationship violence (dating violence and domestic violence), sexual misconduct (sexual assault, sexual exploitation, and sexual or gender-based harassment), and stalking, collectively referred to as "Prohibited Conduct." Prohibited Conduct can undermine students’ academic success and we encourage students who have experienced Prohibited Conduct to talk to someone about their experience, so they can get the resources and support they need.
As all employees at the University are designated as Campus Reporters, I am required, by policy, to report incidents of Prohibited Conduct observed as well as incidents reported to me to an Official with Authority (OWA). At NMU, the OWA are the Title IX Coordinator and the Deputy Title IX Coordinators, who are assigned to implement corrective measures for Prohibited Conduct.
If you or someone you know has experienced Prohibited Conduct, you are encouraged to reach out to these resources:
Complaints against employees, applicants and third parties - Title IX Office (906-227-2420).
Complaints against students (student/student) - Dean of Students Office (906- 227-1700).
If you have a safety concern, please contact the NMU Police Department at 906-227-2151
