Sexual Respect at Grinnell College

Grinnell College expects that all members of the College community – students, faculty, staff, and friends – should be able to pursue their work and education in a safe environment, free from sexual coercion, violence, or intimidation. The College is committed to fostering a safe campus environment where sexual misconduct and violence are unacceptable, and where survivors or those who believe they were harmed by another person are provided support and avenues of redress as appropriate.
