At Trine, we believe in a zero tolerance policy for sexual misconduct.  Members of our community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual violence. All members of the community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Our University Sexual Misconduct/Sexual Assault Policy has been developed to reaffirm these principles and to provide recourse for the individuals whose rights have been violated.

Safety Philosophy

Trine Safety staff acts as facilitator to those in need, helping them to understand and comply with the University's rules, policies and directives. This is achieved through patience, understanding, and guidance, offered in a firm, fair, and respectful manner. Interaction with students, guests, and staff is conducted with respect to personal dignity, and in an unobtrusive, low-key manner.
