Concerns about other violations  

ETSU encourages students to report all sexual misconduct and seeks to make the procedures clear and straightforward.  Yet we realize that sometimes students may be reluctant to report an incident due to concerns about revealing other potential conduct violations such as underage drinking or drug use. To encourage students to report, ETSU will generally forgive other potential violations that occur near the time of the incident, provided that any such violations do not place the health and safety of any person at risk.

Resources for accused persons

Have you be accused of sexual misconduct? Here is what you should know. 

You have rights:

  • All accused persons will be afforded their due process rights under the law and the U.S. Constitution.
  • Anyone accused of sexual misconduct has the right to an advisor of their choosing.  A friend, relative, or even an attorney may serve as an advisor. 
  • All accused persons will be treated fairly, with dignity and respect, and are entitled to an impartial investigation.
