Retaliatory acts, or attempts to retaliate, against anyone who has reported
in good faith sexual misconduct or relationship violence, who has participated (or is
expected to participate) in any manner in an investigation or hearing pursuant to this Policy,
or who otherwise supports the report. Retaliation includes, but is not limited to,
intimidation, verbal or physical threats, harassment, coercion, or other adverse action. When
evidence of retaliatory behavior exists, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
Evidence of retaliation may exist even when there is a finding of “not responsible” on the
underlying complaint. Retaliation does not include good-faith actions lawfully pursued in
response to a report of a Policy violation.
