Awareness & Education

Campuswide education about sexual misconduct and harassment is an important part of prevention. UNCSA is committed to implementing leading protocols and procedures that protect students, including fostering a campus community that is well-educated on issues involving sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and Title IX, a federal law that protects people from discrimination and harassment based on sex.
