Addressing Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Violence

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:

Just Report It

Any student who believes they have experienced or witnessed sexual or gender-based harassment and violence, bias or discrimination/harassment, or hazing may file a complaint through Just Report It, UVA's online incident reporting system. The website provides additional information and links to resources and reporting options.
