Risk-Reduction Tips

Liberty University believes that consistent with the principles of the University, it is wisest to abstain from behavior that could potentially lead to harm to oneself as well as others (i.e. sexual immorality, consumption of alcohol). Additionally, it is more beneficial to prevent crimes than to react after the fact. Below you will find some general safety tips to reduce the risk of experiencing a non-consensual sexual act and avoid committing a non-consensual sexual act:

Reasonable Accommodations

Liberty University offers a wide range of resources for Students and Employees, whether as reporting parties or alleged victims/offenders, to provide support and guidance throughout the inquiry, investigation, and resolution of a report. These measures may be both remedial and protective (i.e. interim measures), and temporary or permanent. The Director of Title IX has the discretion to provide appropriate accommodations based on available information during the course of the investigation or after resolution. Both reporting parties and the accused will receive written notification of the resources and accommodations available. These accommodations can include changes to a reporting parties’ academic, housing, work, or transportation situations when appropriate.
