Sexual Assault Policy

The University has a Student Sexual Assault Policy and will not tolerate acts of sexual assault on members of our campus community. Efforts at preventing sexual assault are provided by various campus agencies including the Division of Student Affairs, Women's Center, University Housing, and Campus Security.

Sexual assault is defined as any form of unwanted sexual contact and includes rape, acquaintance rape, and other sexual acts directed against another person. It does not require the use of physical force and can be the result of a threat, expressed or implied, that places a person in fear of bodily injury.

Reports of all sexual assaults are encouraged, and can be made to any member of the University's Sexual Assault Response Team, which includes staff from the Women's Center, Counseling Services, Student Medical Services, University Housing, Dean of Students, and Campus Security. UH Hilo is committed to ensuring that students who are victims/survivors of sexual assault are treated in a respectful, supportive and caring manner, and that his/her safety, privacy and confidentiality is preserved to the greatest extent possible. Team members will ensure that victims/survivors will be able to access advocacy, medical mental health and other support services in a timely manner; will receive information about options for recourse; and will be presented with reasonable academic and other accommodations.

Any University student or employee found responsible for a sexual assault is subject to the provisions of Hawaiʻi State Law, University Policy and/or the Student Conduct Code. For more information, visit:
