What is EP 1.204?

Sex Discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, domestic and dating violence, and stalking is a violation of the University of Hawai‘i’s policy on sex discrimination and gender-based violence, Interim EP 1.204. Interim EP 1.204 is intended to define expectations for appropriate conduct and outline resolution processes to address conduct that does not meet these expectations.

Intersection with the Law

A number of federal laws and regulations, including Title IX, the Violence Against Women Act, and the Clery Act mandate how institutions respond to such allegations. Many types of sex discrimination also constitute violations of Hawai’i law.

Who’s Protected

All members of the campus community, guests and visitors are protected by Interim EP 1.204 regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The University has jurisdiction over all acts of sexual misconduct involving members of the campus community, no matter where they occur, whether on- or off-campus.

Your Rights & Responsibilities

Members of the campus community, guests, and visitors have a right to be free from sex discrimination and sexual misconduct. All members of the community must conduct themselves in a way that does not infringe upon the rights of others.


When individuals are found to be in violation of the policy, the University will impose serious sanctions. Additional information about campus crime, state laws, and disclosures related to sexual misconduct can be found in your campus Annual Security Report, posted on your college’s website.
