Be Safe When Studying Off Campus

St. Olaf students and employees engaged in off-campus courses and programs are protected by and subject to the college’s Policy Prohibiting Sexual Harassment, just as they are when studying or teaching on campus. However, if a student or employee experiences harassment or misconduct, it can be challenging to know what to do from a distance and in an unfamiliar environment. This brief guide is intended to assist members of the St. Olaf community in responding to harassment or misconduct that may occur in the context of a St. Olaf-sponsored off-campus course or program.

Sexual harassment and sexual misconduct raise challenging and complex issues which may be magnified when they occur in the course of study off-campus. The Office of International and Off-Campus Studies and the Title IX team are committed to providing off-campus study experiences that are free of harassment and misconduct, to provide the equitable and high-impact educational experience to which all students studying off-campus are entitled. If you have any questions before, during, or after an off-campus program experience, please contact International and Off-Campus Studies or the Title IX Coordinator.
