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.

An individual making a report or complaint of sexual harassment against a student, employee, or other individual (including a third-party vendor or visitor) has several reporting options. A formal complaint or report of an allegation of sexual harassment, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking, can be made with the Title IX Coordinator in person, mail, or email.
