Saint Francis University is committed to treating all members of the community with dignity, empathy, and respect. Any individual affected by harassment, sexual misconduct, stalking, or relationship violence, whether as a reporting party, responding party, or a third party, will have equal access to support and counseling services through the University. The University recognizes that deciding whether or not to make a report and choosing how to proceed can be difficult decisions. We encourage any individual who has questions or concerns to seek the support of campus and community resources. These resources can provide guidance in making decisions, information about available resources and procedural options, and assistance to either party in the event that a report and/or resolution under the University’s policy is pursued. Individuals are encouraged to use all available resources, regardless of when or where the incident occurred.
Information about reporting is available if you decide that you would like to take next steps to make a report to the University.
Saint Francis University encourages all community members to make a prompt report of any alleged incident of harassment, sexual misconduct, stalking, and/or relationship violence to local law enforcement and the University. For individuals who are not prepared to make a report but are still seeking information and support, there are statutorily-protected confidential resources available, as designated below. These confidential resources will not share information with the University without the individual’s consent.
