In the context of sexual activity, ASU defines consent as informed and freely given words or actions that indicate a willingness to participate in a mutually agreed upon sexual activity. ASU’s Non-Discrimination, Anti-Harassment and Non-Retaliation policy lists the full definition of consent and more information about what is defined as sexual misconduct.
Your safety and the safety of those around you is important, and you can take an active role in increasing safety on and off campus. Sexual violence is never the victim’s fault, regardless of whether or not they take actions to increase their personal safety. Our primary goal is to prevent sexual violence from being committed, this information may reduce the risk that someone may experience sexual violence or empower one to take action to create a safer community in general.
