Sexual Harassment Policy

The complete text of the University’s policy prohibiting sexual harassment may be found here. Under this policy, the University forbids unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other physical, visual, or verbal behavior of a sexual nature by anyone at Villanova University in either a business or educational context, as more fully described in this policy. Prohibited behavior also includes verbal or visual communications via voicemail, email or the Internet. The policy applies to all employees regardless of job grade or department as well as between employees and students. Violations of the policy may subject an employee to disciplinary action up to and including termination.

To encourage a positive approach to prevention as well as the sensitive and professional handling of complaints, the University designates a Sexual Harassment Complaint Officer.

For questions on the complaint procedure or complaint forms, please contact the Sexual Harassment Officer or Human Resources.
