Kansas State University endeavors to maintain academic, housing, and work environments that are free of discrimination, harassment (including sexual harassment and sexual violence), retaliation, domestic and dating violence, and stalking.
Complaints and other information may be disclosed to state or federal anti-discrimination agencies for investigations or audits, and during litigation. 21-5111 Dating Violence – A type of domestic violence where the perpetrator is or has been involved in a social relationship of a romantic nature with the victim. In cases where the respondent is a vendor, guest, or visitor, the official with authority over the applicable area or department where the conduct occurred will usually serve as the Responsible Administrator. Deciding Administrator: The Deciding Administrator is always a University official with authority to implement the recommendations of an ART, and is usually the direct supervisor of a respondent who is an unclassified University employee.
Vendors on-campus or for University programs or activities must comply with this Policy.
With respect to alleged sexual violence, the University offers reasonable and available changes to academic, living, transportation, and working situations if requested, regardless of whether a criminal complaint is made to police or whether the report or complaint otherwise falls outside this Policy's jurisdiction. The Deciding Administrator will often serve as the Responsible Administrator for the same complaint.
Certain changes may not be available unless a violation of this Policy is found. A Deciding Administrator does not serve as the Appeal Administrator regarding the same complaint, except in the case of USS employees as respondents.
Questions relating to the information in each chapter of the Policies and Procedures Manual should be directed to the office issuing the chapter.
That information is usually located at the end of each chapter.
