RMCAD is committed to eliminating incidents of gender-based discrimination, rape, sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct or domestic violence by instituting a policy that focuses on increasing awareness through prevention and education. 

Title IX is the federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in higher education institutions that receive federal funding. The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act added domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking to the list of sex offenses that higher education institutions must investigate and report in their Annual Security Report.
