FSU is committed to providing an safe and welcoming environment for all students, staff, and visitors. All acts of sex/gender-based harassment or discrimination, including but not limited to sexual misconduct, dating violence, relationship violence, domestic violence, and stalking disrupt the well-being of students and our campus community. Additionally, these acts often create barriers that may prevent students from participating in programs, activities, and courses. Our team is here to identify and remove all concerns and barriers, sort out measures to prevent them from reoccurring, and remedy all effects.
