Part 8 Subpart 8-6 Sexual Assault Policy

Sec. 8-601. Statement of Principles.

Ferris State University does not tolerate sexual assault in any form, including what is often labeled "acquaintance rape" or "date rape". Student and Employee Dignity Policies demand all University community members to act with dignity and treat each other with respect. Sexual assault is a violation of the dignity and respect policies, as well as other policies and criminal law, and the University will strongly pursue disciplinary action and sanctions against all employee and student perpetrators, up to and including termination of employment or dismissal from the University.


Sec. 8-602. Administration.

The University's Department of Public Safety shall be responsible for administering policies regarding sexual assault. Such policies shall provide or include the procedures to be followed to report sexual assaults, identification of reporting officials, disciplinary actions and sanctions, medical and counseling assistance, accommodations, notification of victim's rights, and informational resources and shall be issued by the Vice President for Administration and Finance and approved by the President.
