The University of Arkansas at Little Rock explicitly condemns sexual assault as a violation of an individualâ€™s human rights and dignity.The policy of UALR is that members of the university community neither commit nor condone sexual assault in any form. This prohibition applies equally to male and female staff, faculty, and students, to all other persons on premises subject to university control and to those engaged to further the interests of the university.
Sexual assault is unlawful and may also subject those who engage in it to civil and criminal penalties. Employees and students who engage in sexual assault will also be subject to applicable disciplinary action. The university is committed to providing an environment free from sexual assault. Therefore, the university administration strongly encourages all UALR community members to report incidents of sexual assault. To that end, reporting and investigating procedures are supportive of and sensitive to the alleged victim. At the same time, they adequately safeguard the rights of the alleged offender.
