The University of Wyoming strives to create a respectful, safe, and non-threatening environment for its students, faculty and staff.  Behavior that harms others or threatens the campus community challenges the institution's key mission.

According to the Student Code of Conduct, sexual misconduct incorporates a broad range of behaviors including dating violence, domestic violence, hostile environment sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, stalking, and any other conduct of a sexual nature that is nonconsensual.  The Student Code of Conduct also prohibits retaliation against anyone who reports or witnesses a potential act of sexual misconduct.

The prevention of sexual misconduct, particularly sexual violence, is an institutional priority at the University of Wyoming. The University is resolute in its commitment to support survivors of sexual assault, to respond promptly to reports of any type of sexual misconduct, and to investigate and adjudicate reports in a manner that is fair and equitable to all parties involved. Importantly, the University is also committed to continually assessing and improving its policies, prevention initiatives, and educational programs based on input from the campus community, research, best practice and regulatory guidance.
