The sanctions currently in place for an individual found responsible for violating the Sexual Misconduct Policy are undeniably weak, and need to be addressed immediately. We request a change that will implement defined classifications of sexual assault and the sanctions that are attached. For instance, verbal sexual assault should be assigned different sanctions than sexual assault in regards to consent. This will promote not only a higher rate of reporting among victims, but also a smoother judicial process. These requests will benefit the Goucher community as a whole.
