The Student Gender-Based/Sexual Misconduct Policy addresses: 

  • Sexual Misconduct (attempted or completed)  
    • Non-Consensual Sexual Intercourse 
    • Non-Consensual Sexual Contact 
    • Sexual Exploitation 
  • Dating Violence 
  • Domestic Violence 
  • Stalking 
  • Sexual Harassment  
    • Hostile Environment 
    • Quid Pro Quo Harassment 
  • Intimidation 
  • Retaliation 
  • Other civil rights offenses when the act is based on gender/sex 

This policy addresses situations in which both the complaining and responding parties are UNCW students. Other student polices can be found in the Code of Student Life.

Faculty/Staff Policies 

Allegations of gender-based or sexual misconduct committed by or against faculty or staff are addressed by the University's Unlawful Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct Policy. Additionally, the UNCW policies website is an index and repository for all official university UNCW policies, including the aforementioned policies.
