Information for Visitors

St. Olaf College’s commitment to a respectful, safe, and healthy environment extends to visitors and guests as well as to students, faculty, and staff.  Behaviors that are prohibited for members of the St. Olaf community are also prohibited for others who come to our campus. These behaviors include, but are not limited to, unwelcome sexual conduct or communication, rape and other forms of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Such actions are not only violations of an individual’s rights and dignity, but are also attacks on our college community. In addition, some forms of these behaviors are crimes.

The college will seek to address and resolve all reports of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct promptly, impartially, and equitably, including in cases where one of the parties is a guest or visitor. When the college finds that such behavior has occurred, it will take steps to stop the behavior, to prevent its recurrence, and to remedy its effects.

Visitors and guests are encouraged to use the navigation tabs to the right to:

  • Access immediate help from college officials
  • Review the college’s policy prohibiting discrimination, harassment, and related misconduct
  • Learn more about the college’s Title IX Coordinator and Title IX Team
  • Report to the college any experience of sexual harassment, misconduct, or assault
  • Access additional information and resources for education and support
