Title IX Amnesty Policy:

Shepherd is concerned first and foremost with the safety of the entire campus community. We understand that students may be hesitant to report an occurrence of gender-based violence, including sexual harassment, to University officials due to concerns about potential violations of the alcohol or drug policies. While alcohol and drug violations are not condoned by the University, reporting sexual harassment and violence is strongly encouraged.

A bystander acting in good faith or a reporting individual acting in good faith that discloses any incident of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault to University officials will not be subject to code of conduct action for violations of alcohol and/or drug use policies occurring in connection with the report.
