Discrimination and Harassment
Discrimination and harassment, including, but not limited to sexual misconduct, based on a protected class in any form, is never acceptable. Students are responsible to know and adhere to the university’s Sexual Misconduct and Affirmative Action, Equal Employment Opportunity & Non-Discrimination/Harassment policies, which are at http://policies.osu.edu. Effective August 1, 2019, those policies, and not the Code of Student Conduct, govern the investigation, adjudication and resolution of protected class discrimination and harassment complaints.
Please visit the Office of Institutional Equity's website for information related to sex/gender and other protected class discrimination, including sexual misconduct.
The Title IX website contains links to many available resources, including:
- legal and policy information,
- support and reporting resources,
- information on interim measures
- campus and community resources, and
- information on protection orders and how to help a friend or family member.
You can submit a complaint through this webform.
