Info for the Respondent

If you have been accused of sexual misconduct, this may be a confusing and overwhelming time. The investigation process can be stressful. Therefore, UConn provides a number of support resources that can help you understand the investigation process and provide support. If UConn conducts an investigation, you will have the opportunity to provide your full story to the investigators. Also, it is important for you to keep in mind that any act of retaliation against any person for making a report or participating in an investigation is strictly prohibited.

The rights of the person accused of sexual assault and the person reporting a sexual assault are set forth in detail in The Student Code.
