Summary of the University's Policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment and Related Misconduct Including Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment, Sexual Violence, Interpersonal Violence, and Stalking

The University's Policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment and Related Misconduct prohibits all forms of discrimination and harassment based on protected status: age, color, creed, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status. It expressly, therefore, also prohibits sexual violence and sexual exploitation, which by definition involve conduct of a sexual nature and are prohibited forms of sexual or gender-based harassment. This policy further prohibits stalking and interpersonal violence, which need not be based on an individual's protected status. Finally, this policy prohibits complicity for knowingly assisting in an act that violates this policy and retaliation against an individual because of their good faith participation in the reporting, investigation, or adjudication of violations of this policy.

Policy Statement on Nondiscrimination

The University is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community and to ensuring that educational and employment decisions are based on individuals' abilities and qualifications. Consistent with this principle and applicable laws, it is therefore the University's policy not to discriminate in offering access to its educational programs and activities or with respect to employment terms and conditions on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, genetic information, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Such a policy ensures that only relevant factors are considered and that equitable and consistent standards of conduct and performance are applied.

Resources for Information and Assistance

Individuals are encouraged to report incidents of prohibited conduct to the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office, the Title IX Compliance Coordinator, the Student Complaint/Deputy Title IX Coordinator, the Office of the Dean of Students, or the UNC Department of Public Safety. As an alternative, an individual can also seek confidential assistance that does not involve notice to the University. If the conduct you have experienced is sexual violence or other criminal activity, including interpersonal (relationship) violence or stalking, you are also encouraged to report the incident to local law enforcement.

The Honor Code

The Honor System forms a bond of trust among students, faculty, and administrators. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill operates under a system of self-governance, as students are responsible for governing themselves. As such, our University is transformed into a powerful community of inquiry and learning. The Honor Code embodies the ideals of academic honesty, integrity, and responsible citizenship, and governs the performance of all academic work a student conducts at the University. Acceptance of an offer of admission to Carolina presupposes a commitment to the principles embodied in our century-old tradition of honor and integrity.
