Concerned about your own behavior?

If you think your own behavior may have crossed a line, it’s a good idea to consult with the Sexual Harassment Policy Office or one of the University’s confidential resources.  Our Resource Guide is a great place to start.

If you’ve been accused of inappropriate behavior that might be sexual harassment, you may feel frightened, confused, angry, defensive—any or all of these. The SHPO and Sexual Harassment Advisers offer impartial support to all parties without advocating for either side.

Points to keep in mind:

  • Don’t repeat the problem behavior that generated a complaint.
  • Avoid retaliating against the complainant.
  • Be supportive of the resolution process.
  • Keep a record of relevant communications.

If someone has intentionally made a false report or provided false information about your behavior, the person will be subject to disciplinary action.
