Sexual Misconduct Resolution Process

The Dean of Students Office is responsible for investigating reports of sexual misconduct, monitoring the response of other campus officials involved in sexual misconduct complaints, and for responding to complaints of retaliation connected to the reporting or filing of a complaint covered by the Sexual Misconduct Policy. In consultation with the Director of Compliance and other offices such as Human Resources, the Office of Student Conduct, may handle certain aspects of the university’s response to an alleged violation of W&M’s harassment policies involving students.

W&M prohibits sexual harassment in any educational programs and activities or employment situations

The university's policy established a process for determining when sexual harassment or assault has occurred. It also authorized the university to take actions to stop the conduct, to remediate its effects, and to provide information to prevent sexual harassment.
