To better understand UNA students' experiences with intimate partner violence (dating violence), sexual assault, bullying, stalking, and gender/sex discrimination, take a look at our most recent UNA Student Campus Climate data:

2016-2017 Student Campus Climate Survey Data

The University of North Alabama has an expectation of mutual respect. Students, staff, administrators, and faculty are entitled to a working environment and educational environment free of discriminatory harassment. Both the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the State of Alabama regard sexual harassment as a form of sex/gender discrimination and, therefore, as an unlawful discriminatory practice. This includes sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic and intimate partner violence, stalking, gender-based discrimination, discrimination against pregnant and parenting students, and gender-based bullying and hazing.
