Though PLU does not currently have a stand-alone stalking policy, stalking behavior is prohibited through policies related to Computer Use, University Violence Prevention, and Sexual Misconduct. You can visit the Student Code of Conduct Website to view these policies in full.

PLU will uphold the Washington state policies and laws around the issue of stalking in order to protect its students and preserve their individual rights.

The CGE’s Advocacy Services*  is a confidential resource that provides support for victims of sexual assault, including obtaining a Protection Order, learning how to increase their safety, and connecting with additional forms of support.
