When referring to sexual and gender-based harm, this includes violence that disproportionately affects a person or group based on gender, and may be linked to gendered expectations and/or power dynamics. This term will be used interchangeably with power-based violence, which occurs when a person uses the assertion of power, control, intimidation, and/or coercion to harm another person. These acts may be committed by friends, partners, family members, strangers, acquaintances, or others.

If you have committed or are concerned you may have committed sexual/gender-based harm, and as a result feel you are in need of confidential services and support, please contact Student Counseling Services (SCS). In these situations, Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention and Services would refer you to Student Counseling Services in order to ensure you receive the most appropriate and specialized services available.

If you have been named as a Respondent in a Title IX investigation, we understand this can be a stressful process, and you are encouraged to contact Student Counseling Services. In addition, you may contact the Title IX/Office of Equity and Diversity for a directory of advisors.
