Sexual Violence, Harassment, Discrimination and Grievances

In accord with its history, mission and credo, Creighton University believes that each individual should be treated with respect and dignity and that any form of sexual violence, harassment and/or discrimination is a violation of human dignity. The University condemns sexual violence, harassment and discrimination and maintains a “zero-tolerance” for sexual violence, harassment and/or discrimination. Students, faculty, and staff have the right to work and learn free of sexual violence, harassment and discrimination. The University will take all reasonable efforts to prevent and promptly correct instances of sexual violence, harassment or discrimination. Additionally, students, faculty and staff have the right to a structured process for resolving problems, complaints or grievances relating to the execution of institutional policies. The purpose of this policy is:

  • To communicate the mechanisms for investigating complaints in a manner that reasonably protects the privacy of individuals involved in situations of alleged harassment and/or discrimination and grievances;
  • To ensure the provision of equal employment and educational opportunities to faculty, staff, students and applicants for such opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, sex, marital status, national origin, age, disability, citizenship, sexual orientation, veteran status, and any other groups protected by federal, state or local statutes;
  • To protect all those involved who report or provide information related to sexual violence, harassment, discrimination, and/or grievances from retaliation of any kind;
  • To set forth guidance for preventing sexual violence, harassment and/or discrimination;
  • To take timely corrective action when sexual violence, harassment and/or discrimination is alleged to have occurred;
  • To ensure that students, faculty and staff have the opportunity to present grievances to the University regarding a certain action(s) perceived to be in violation of institutional policies by a member of the University community; and
  • To establish a consistent process for resolving complaints of sexual violence, harassment and/or discrimination and grievances in a fair and just manner.
