Sexual Misconduct Prevention
Ohio University prides itself on promoting a campus climate that supports personal growth and holistic development among students, faculty and staff. This environment should be free from fear from predatory behavior or micro-aggressions that contribute to a negative culture. As such, the Presidential Advisory Council on Sexual Misconduct was commissioned in Fall 2014.
The Presidential Advisory Council on Sexual Misconduct is charged to reinforce the existing cooperative approach to address sexual misconduct at Ohio University. The council makes ongoing efforts to review protocols, determine best practices, and plan processes and programs that support a healthy and positive campus climate. Priority consideration is given to grievance and adjudication processes, victim advocacy, risk reduction programming, campus climate assessment and outreach.
