Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence & Stalking Policy

In accord with the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) of 2013, as well as Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination based on sex, including, but not limited to, sexual assault, John Marshall adopts the following standard of conduct which applies to all members of the John Marshall community, including students, faculty, administrators, staff, vendors, contractors, and visitors to our campus.

Our community expects that all interpersonal relationships and interactions—especially those of an intimate nature—be grounded in mutual respect, open communication, and clear consent.

To this end, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking are unacceptable and are not tolerated at John Marshall. These terms are defined in the link below under “Definitions of Prohibited Conduct.” Retaliation, as defined below, is also prohibited.

John Marshall encourages anyone who has been subjected to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and/or stalking to seek appropriate help and to report the incident promptly to the police and/or John Marshall officials. John Marshall has professional staff who will assist students, faculty, and/or staff members to get help, including immediate medical care, counseling, and other essential services. Specific policies; methods for reporting, including confidential reporting; and resources are described below.

As a general matter, John Marshall will take prompt action to investigate reports of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and/or stalking and, where appropriate, to impose sanctions. The applicable procedures will depend on whether the alleged offender is a student, faculty, or staff member. Students, faculty, and staff who violate this policy may face discipline up to and including expulsion or termination. This is set out in detail in the link below under "JMLS Complaint Procedures."
