Hendrix College believes in a zero tolerance
policy for sexual misconduct. When an
allegation of sexual misconduct is brought to the administration, and a
respondent is found to have violated this policy, sanctions will be used to address
the misconduct. All members of the
community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe
upon the rights of others. The Hendrix College Sexual Misconduct Policy has
been developed to reaffirm these principles and to provide recourse for those
individuals whose rights have been violated.
This policy has dual purposes. It
serves as a measure for the college to determine, after the fact, if behaviors
trespass on community values. It also
should serve as a guide for students on college expectations for sexual
communication, sexual responsibility and sexual respect.
