Sexual Assault Prevention and Response
Taylor University seeks to provide a safe, nurturing environment free from sexual harassment, assault, and any form of sexual violence. The biblical reality that all humans are created in God's image and are, thus, of immeasurable value and worthy of respect and protection drives our efforts. Ensuring a safe environment free from sexual violence is essential to our commitment to foster spiritual and personal development in our students.
Taylor University takes discrimination and sexual violence very seriously. Any report or question regarding Title IX or the University's policy, which prohibits discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, and relationship violence, should be directed to one of the Title IX officers listed below.
