The University of Connecticut is committed to creating and maintaining a campus environment free from all forms of sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking. As a University, we are committed to ensuring compliance with Title IX, a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on the sex and gender of employees and students. UConn’s Title IX website includes more information and support to anyone impacted by sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence, and/or stalking.
UConn students, faculty, and staff abroad who experience any forms of sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence, or stalking can receive support and resources from UConn. Your Title IX rights travel with you.
Get Help or File a Report
If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence, and/or stalking while on a program abroad, report directly to UConn Office of Institutional Equity.
It is important for victim-survivors to know that resources can offer assistance even if you do not file a report or press charges. This includes help with medical and counseling services, academic and housing support, referrals to legal and confidential advocacy organizations, and assistance with working, visa and immigration, transportation, financial aid matters and more. Confidential advocacy resources in the United States offer free, confidential support, and Education Abroad can help to connect you with support resources abroad in your host country.
For faculty and staff traveling abroad with students, the What to do when a student reports sexual violence, relationship violence and/or stalking.pdf.pdf document outlines the process and provides resources for assisting students and fulfilling the University’s reporting requirements for employees.
