If a student or organization is involved with an act of sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, or sexual violence, the University can handle the situation in a number of ways.
For victims, UCF has the option to issue a no contact order, provide access to counseling services, provide alternative course completion options, provide assistance in housing relocation, and it may provide escorts to ensure safe movement around campus.
Under Title IX, the University has an obligation to investigate reports of sexual misconduct and harassment and to take “prompt and appropriate action”. (Golden Rule Handbook pg. 9). Victims have the choice whether or not to pursue action through the conduct review process. The University can however proceed without the victim’s consent in certain situations. If the University does proceed, the accused and the victim will be notified of the alleged charges. They will each have an appointment date to discuss the matter with the Office of Student Conduct and at that point the victim can choose to participate or not to.
