Expectations, Policies & State Information

Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner supportive of the educational mission of the University, which includes our sexual misconduct and sexual harassment policies.

The Sexual Misconduct and Interpersonal Violence policy and process are located within the DePauw University Student Handbook. This policy outlines the scope of the policy, key definitions, reporting options and obligations, interim measures, student organization information, prohibited conduct, and an overview of the Title IX investigative process.  

The Sexual Harassment policy is also located in the DePauw University Student Handbook, and covers important policy definitions, reporting information, and resolution process for students, faculty, and staff.

A summary of these policies can be found in the Title IX Student Information Brochure.
