Sexual Violence Policy

Sexual violence is an intolerable intrusion into the most personal and private rights of an individual, and is prohibited at Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, including Normandale Community College. Minnesota State is committed to eliminating sexual violence in all forms and will take appropriate remedial action against any individual found responsible for acts in violation of this policy. Acts of sexual violence may also constitute violations of criminal or civil law or of other Board Policies that may require separate proceedings. To further its commitment against sexual violence, Normandale provides reporting options, an investigative and disciplinary process, prevention training, and other related services.

This policy applies to all Minnesota State students and employees, Board of Trustees and to others, as appropriate, where incidents of sexual violence on system property have been reported. Reports of sexual violence committed by a student at a location other than on system property are covered by this policy pursuant to the factors listed in Board Policy 3.6, Part 2. Reports of sexual violence committed by a system employee at a location other than system property are covered by this policy.

Reports of sexual violence committed on system property by individuals who are not student or employees are subject to appropriate actions by Minnesota State, including pursuing criminal or civil action against them.

Everyone’s cooperation is needed to assure that Normandale is a safe place to learn and work.
