Sexual Assault, Stalking, and Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence
FIT seeks to create and maintain a safe environment in which all members of the community – students, faculty, administration, staff, guests and visitors – can learn and work free from the fear of sexual violence. FIT prohibits sexual violence by its students, faculty or staff. Sexual violence covered by this policy includes sexual assault, stalking, and domestic and intimate partner violence. The College will promptly investigate all allegations of sexual violence, and take appropriate disciplinary action upon finding a violation of this policy by a member of the FIT community. The College is committed to supporting victims of sexual violence that occurs on campus. Just as important, FIT offers education and training programs intended to prevent sexual violence from happening in our community. FIT also prohibits harassment of a sexual nature and has relevant policies on discrimination and harassment, including sexual harassment. This policy statement sets forth information for students and other members of the FIT community to follow in the event that they or someone they know have been a victim of sexual violence, as well as the support services provided by the college and disciplinary procedures.
