Students of the Rowan University community have the right to access and benefit from the University’s educational and other programs, activities or services, free from any form of Sexual Misconduct. The University does not tolerate Sexual Misconduct of any kind. This policy has been developed to reaffirm these principles and to provide recourse for those individuals whose rights have been violated.
A Complainant and Respondent each have the right to an Advisor of their choice during the Grievance Process (discussed below). An Advisor may be a family member, a friend, an attorney, or any third party (i.e., a trusted employee). However, an Advisor may not otherwise be involved in the Grievance Process (i.e., a witness, co-Complainant or co-Respondent). Advisors are present to support the parties and to provide advice on procedural matters; but may not speak on behalf of the party.
