Sexual Discrimination and Misconduct Policy

Sexual assault is a serious violent crime. It is a crime of hostility and aggression, as well as a violation of human dignity. Sexual assault is also a very sensitive crime which is unique in its physical and mental impact upon the alleged victim. When it occurs at Bellarmine University, it is also a flagrant violation of University standards and will not be tolerated. The Bellarmine University community expects its members to treat other persons with respect and dignity and will not tolerate any form of sexual assault or sexual misconduct. Wanton, unacceptable conduct will be addressed severely for the good of the students and the academic community.


As a member of the Bellarmine University community, we encourage all Bellarmine Knights to be courageous in the prevention of intimate partner violence and sexual misconduct on our campus. We hope this website and resources will be helpful to you in getting the support you or someone you know may need.
