Respect Boundaries

Respect Boundaries is the UNK program dedicated to assisting those who have experienced discrimination (gender, pregnancy, race/ethnicity, veteran status, religion, disability, age, sexual orientation, or marital status) and/or sexual misconduct (date rape, rape, sexual assault or sexual harassment) and/or domestic violence and stalking.  Respect Boundaries also provides education to prevent these types of aggression, harassment and discrimination.

If you are a victim or know one, get to a safe place as soon as possible. Seek help and/or medical treatment immediately. (Call 911 in an emergency). If you want to remain anonymous, contact someone in column 1. The victim should not shower or bathe, brush teeth, drink or eat anything, use the restroom, or change clothes.  It is best to see help within the first 24 hours! Also consider writing notes to remember.

If you have experienced any of the above, make sure to save all evidence (copies of e-mails, notes, etc) and document the “who, what, when, where, why’ so that you can recall all of the details.  Also make sure to note any witnesses that may have seen what occurred or who have experienced the same.  Do not ignore the situation and hope it will get better!  Report it and ask for any help you need. 

All parties need to know that any acts of retaliation based on claims filed, could lead to further actions by the University. Grievance and appeal procedures are available, but are specific to each case. If you want to learn more about your rights, or if you believe that UNK is violating Federal law, you may contact the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights, at (800) 421-3481 or If you wish to fill out a complaint form online, you may do so at: .
