Administrative Sanctions

Rape, acquaintance rape, or other sex offenses (forcible or non forcible) are violations of university policy. The University of Houston is committed to eradicating these behaviors and will not tolerate them. Following an on-campus disciplinary proceeding, sanctions may be imposed on faculty, staff or students found in violation of university policy, which may result in separation from the university. Refer to the Faculty, Staff and Student handbooks for a complete range of sanctions. The University of Houston has established disciplinary procedures which address eases of alleged sexual assault committed by faculty, staff or students. Included in these procedures are statements that: The accuser and the accused are entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during a campus disciplinary proceeding; and Both the accuser and the accused shall be informed of the outcome of any campus disciplinary proceeding brought alleging a sexual assault.

Campus authorities are available to provide assistance in changing academic and living situations after an alleged sexual assault if requested by the victim and if these changes are reasonably available.
