Sexual Violence Prevention and Response

Updated September 7, 2021

The University at Buffalo is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our students and other members of the university community

For many years, UB has had prevention, response and awareness programs, policies and practices in place to address complaints of sexual harassment and sexual violence, and we have adjusted them over time to make them more effective and assure that they comport with applicable laws, regulations and agency guidance.

In addition, UB ensures that reports of sexual violence are investigated and adjudicated in an impartial, timely, and thorough manner by individuals who receive annual training in conducting investigations of sexual violence, the effects of trauma, impartiality, and the rights of all parties to a complaint.
