The University of Virginia is an institution built upon foundational values of honor, integrity, trust, and respect. Consistent with these values, the University is committed to providing a safe and nondiscriminatory learning, living, and working environment for all members of the University community. To these ends, the University has adopted a Policy on Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence.
Through presentations, training, and ongoing programming, students will receive information about this issue during Summer Orientation and throughout the academic year.
In addition to information in the Policies section, parents and students can learn more through the following websites:
- UVA's Comprehensive Title IX Website (with resource and reporting options): http://eocr.virginia.edu/title-ix
- Just Report It: www.virginia.edu/justreportit
Just Report It
Civility and respect are cornerstones of the community of trust at the University of Virginia. Any student who believes he or she has been the target of bias may file a complaint through the Just Report It incident reporting system. The website provides complete details, including UVA's definition of "bias complaint," what to expect in response from the University when such a complaint is received, how to preserve evidence, and what resources and support are available. Complaints can be filed online, over the telephone, or in person.
