A false allegation is one the complainant brings knowing that what is alleged did not occur and, therefore, could not constitute sexual harassment. Malice may or may not exist. Generally, we consider fabrications to be false allegations.
The Student Code of Conduct educates students about appropriate behavior and fosters a community in which academic success can occur.
Dishonesty, such as cheating, plagiarism, misrepresenting of oneself or an organization, knowingly furnishing false information to the University, or omitting relevant or necessary information to gain a benefit, to injure, or to defraud is prohibited.
By submitting a complaint you agree that you have read and understand that (a) filing a false report is a crime punishable as a Class A Misdemeanor in accordance with §519.040 Statute of the Code of Kentucky and (b)knowingly furnishing false information to the University, omitting relevant or necessary information to gain benefit, to injure, or defraud is prohibited and subject to action by The Office of Student Conduct (c) information you provide may be shared with, but not limited to, the Office of Student Conduct, WKU police, state and federal agencies, and involved individual's parent or guardian pursuant to KY. acts ch. 99, sec.134, where applicable and permitted by law.
It is the position of The Office of Student Conduct that among the violations of misconduct considered to be of an especially serious nature are those that represent a threat to the safety and health of members of the University Community. These include but are not limited too, harassment, physical violence or threat of violence, non-consensual sexual contact, rape or any form of sexual violence.
