The University of North Carolina at Pembroke is committed to providing a learning and working environment characterized by mutual respect and fair treatment among all members of its campus community. An essential component of this environment is a strong ethic and practice of equality, acceptance, and nondiscrimination. Harassment or discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, or on a person's disability or veteran status, or any other basis prohibited by university policy or by state or federal laws is unacceptable and will not be tolerated within the campus community.

UNC Pembroke strives to provide a safe environment in which students and employees can pursue their work and educational endeavors free from the detrimental effects of sexual misconduct, which includes gender-based discrimination and harassment and sexual violence. Therefore, the university seeks to continuously educate students, faculty and staff about these issues and to provide a means of recourse for those who believe they have experienced such behavior. 

Sexual misconduct is a serious issue which has the potential to disrupt someone’s academic or employment status and their emotional, physical, financial, and social well-being. UNC Pembroke is committed to reducing incidents of sexual misconduct while simultaneously providing resources and services to all students who are directly or indirectly impacted by sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct is a broad term encompassing any unwelcome behavior of a sexual nature that is committed without consent or by force, intimidation, coercion or manipulation. Sexual misconduct can occur between persons of the same or different genders. Sexual violence includes dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault.

Consistent with its Title IX obligation, the university prohibits discrimination, including sexual and gender-based harassment and violence, on the basis of sex and gender in all of its programs and activities, including academics, employment, athletics, and other extracurricular activities.
