The University of Rhode Island seeks to maintain a safe, secure environment which supports the mission of the University and is free from coercion and exploitation. The University does not tolerate any form of sexual assault or interpersonal violence. These behaviors include but are not limited to sexual harassment, forced sexual contact, forced sexual intercourse (or rape), and physical abuse. These acts not only violate the policies of the University of Rhode Island, but criminal and civil laws of the federal government and the state of Rhode Island.
