RSU recognizes its responsibility to increase awareness of such misconduct, prevent its occurrence, support victims, deal fairly and firmly with offenders, and diligently investigate reports of misconduct. In addressing issues of gender-based misconduct, all members of the RSU family must come together to respect and care for one another in a manner consistent with our deeply held academic and community values.
