As Rice Faculty/Staff you also have a right to work in an environment that is free from sexual harassment/violence, domestic violence, stalking, and other forms of interpersonal violence.
Coercive or forceful actions by another faculty or staff member or student are not acceptable. You have rights, you are not alone and it is not your fault.
If you feel you have experienced any of these forms of violence, you can make a report to Rice's Title IX Coordinator.
