Longwood will not tolerate sexual misconduct in any form, whether by a stranger or by an acquaintance, whether against females or males.
Longwood University is committed to providing a healthy living, learning and working environment; an atmosphere that emphasizes the dignity and worth of the individual, which promotes personal integrity, civility and mutual respect, and creates an environment that is free from sexual misconduct and discrimination. Sexual misconduct, sexual discrimination and sexual harassment, are incompatible with Longwood’s commitment to diversity and educational equity. Educational training and prevention programs will be provided along with appropriate resources and reporting options. This policy includes all forms of sexual misconduct, including sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual violence, dating and relationship violence and stalking by employees, students, or third parties. This policy addresses any sexual misconduct that involves members of the Longwood community regardless of whether the incident occurs during working hours and regardless of whether the incident occurs on or off campus. The intent of this policy is to provide the campus community with information, common definitions, and strategies to report and manage incidents that occur.
This policy applies to all Longwood students, staff and faculty in all university programs and activities regardless of location of the incident(s). This policy also applies to individuals who join our community as an affiliate or part of an affiliated program. The University will conduct investigations to the best of their ability that may lead to appropriate criminal, personnel, and student conduct actions. All Longwood students, staff and faculty shall be offered immediate resources which may include counseling, medical assistance and living, learning and/or appropriate working environment accommodations.

There are a number of different ways in which sexual misconduct can be reported. Students, staff or faculty who believe they have either witnessed or been subjected to sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, dating and relationship violence, stalking and retaliation should notify the University Title IX Coordinator:
Jennifer Fraley, Associate Dean of Conduct & Integrity and Deputy Title IX Coordinator
Lindsey Moran, Esq., University Clery and Title IX Coordinator
Lisa Mooney, Chief Human Resources Officer Deputy Title IX Coordinator
Employees: Employees who believe they have either witnessed or been subjected to sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, dating and relationship violence, stalking and retaliation notify the Chief Human Resources Officer (Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Employee Issues).
Making a report with Longwood Police: Persons who wish to file a police report may contact Longwood Police at (434) 395-2091. Office: Dorrill Dining Hall, Ground Floor. Online anonymous reporting to the police.
Making a Confidential Report: Persons who wish to report an incident or speak to someone about what happened and desire that the details of the incident be kept confidential, should speak with staff members of Counseling and Psychological Services, Student Health Center, or off-campus crisis resources, who will maintain confidentiality. Campus counselors and Student Health Center staff are available to help students free of charge. In addition, you may go off campus to speak with clergy and chaplains, who will also keep reports made to them confidential.
Making a Limited Report: Persons who wish to report an incident and receive appropriate accommodations, but desire that the University take no action to investigate this incident, may speak to the Campus Advocate. This option produces a limited report, which includes no generally identifiable information about the complainant. A complainant may later choose to file a complaint with the University Title IX Coordinator and thus have the incident fully investigated to the best of the University’s ability. The Campus Advocate may be contacted at Counseling and Psychological Services: Health and Fitness Center, Upper Level; Phone: (434) 395-2409.
