Providence College’s Sexual Misconduct or Relationship Violence Policy applies to all Providence College students and employees (i.e., faculty, staff, administrators), and to all “third parties” (defined for this Policy as visitors, guests, contractors, vendors, and other third parties).
As it is defined in this Policy, conduct is prohibited when it is committed by or against students, employees, or third parties under the following circumstances:

  • It occurs on-campus or on property owned or controlled by the College;
  • It occurs in the context of a College educational or employment program or activity; or,
  • It occurs outside the context of a College educational or employment program or activity but has continuing adverse effects on, or creates a hostile environment for, students, employees, or third parties within such context and/or while on-campus.
