Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is an act of interpersonal violence that occurs at alarming numbers on college campuses. Victims can be male, female, straight, gay, bisexual or transgender. Shepherd University is committed to eliminating sexual assault on our campus and we want to ensure the victims of sexual assault receive the care and resources they need to be healthy, feel safe and regain a sense of control over their lives.

Sexual Assault is a form of Sexual Misconduct and is defined in the Student Code of Conduct as:

Sexual Assault, including unwanted sexual intercourse, unwanted sexual intrusion or any form of sexual touching with another person without the consent of that person.
