Title IX and Equity Resources

Barnard College is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination and harassment.

Consent. The presence of consent involves explicit communication and mutual approval for the act in which the parties are/were involved. A sexual encounter is considered consensual when individuals willingly and knowingly engage in sexual activity. The use of coercion in instances of sexual assault involves the use of pressure, manipulation, substances, and/or force.
