Domestic Violence

Violence committed by a current or former spouse or intimate partner of the alleged victim, by a person with whom the alleged victim shares a child in common, by a person who is cohabitating with or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse or intimate partner, by a person similarly situated to a spouse of the alleged victim. 

Domestic violence that involves a sexual or amorous relationship aspect or a prohibited bias factor (e.g., race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or national origin, religion, age, genetic information, disability status or veteran status) will be addressed by the Equal Opportunity Office.  Where there is no sexual or amorous relationship aspect and no prohibited bias factor involved, domestic violence by an employee will be addressed by Human Resources or the Office of Legal Affairs and domestic violence by a student will be addressed by the Office of Student Conduct
