CONSENT AND SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

Consent is the clear, knowing and voluntary demonstration, through mutually understandable words or actions, of willingness to engage in a specific sexual activity and any conditions on the activity. It is active, not passive, and silence, absent actions evidencing permission, is not consent. 

Responsibility for obtaining consent lies with the individual initiating the sexual activity. Consent can be withdrawn by any person at any time. A current or previous consensual intimate relationship between people does not imply consent.

To give consent, a person must be of legal age. Consent cannot be obtained through coercion, fraud, or from a person who an alleged offender knows or should reasonably know is incapacitated.

Sexual misconduct is a sexual act or contact of a sexual nature that occurs, regardless of personal relationship, without the consent of the other person(s), or that occurs when the person(s) is unable to give consent or whose consent is coerced or obtained in a fraudulent manner. 

Sexual misconduct includes, but is not limited to, sexual abuse, violence of a sexual nature, sexual harassment, non-consensual sexual intercourse, sexual exploitation, video voyeurism, or the obtaining, posting or disclosure of intimate descriptions, photos, or videos without the express consent of the persons depicted therein, as well as dating violence, domestic violence and stalking. 

OPTIONS FOR REPORTING

Students have multiple options for reporting an incident of sexual harassment or sex discrimination. Please note that all University employees, with the exceptions listed in numbers 1 and 2 below, are required to report any incident of sexual harassment or discrimination they learn about.

  1. Disclosure to confidential advisors. Confidential advisors are not required to report the incident to the Title IX coordinator and may provide services regarding reporting, supportive measures, and rights to report. (See link to the right for confidential advisors.)
  2. Speak to a counselor. Counselors are not required to disclose incidents they learn about during counseling sessions. You can set up an appointment by emailing csandoval@lsua.edu.
