UE AAUP Releases Statement on Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment
Evansville— 4/23/21 —The following statement has been endorsed by the membership of the University of Evansville (UE) chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP):
The University of Evansville chapter of the AAUP would like to express its compassion and support for all of the victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment within the UE community. Such violence is entirely at odds with the values of the university and there can be no tolerance for such behavior on any UE campus.
The faculty is committed to working alongside students, staff, administrators, and community members to create a safe and healthy environment for everyone at the university. This can only be done through the complete eradication of the scourges of sexual assault and sexual harassment. Central to the task of preventing such abhorrent actions is the creation of a university-wide culture of accountability and self-awareness.
We must all know how to correctly identify and report sexual assault and sexual harassment. We must all learn how to aid and empower victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment. We must all take responsibility for bringing to justice those who would seek to commit or enable sexual assault or sexual harassment. The work to be done is substantial and each aspect of it will be difficult, but this is all the more reason why everyone needs to be involved in its completion.
