Yale University is deeply committed to cultivating and maintaining a culture of respect and inclusion, where everyone can pursue their academic and professional aspirations unhindered by discrimination and harassment. Sharing information about reports of sexual misconduct is one of many ways the university supports that commitment. Since 2012, the university has provided de-identified information about disclosures of sexual misconduct and the actions taken by the university to address them as a means of offering greater transparency into our processes and to engage the broader community in efforts to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct at Yale.
While intended to be broadly informative, the information provided in this Data Dashboard does have limitations. Due to privacy obligations, this information cannot fully convey the variety and complexity of circumstances associated with cases that may appear similar. Likewise, this Dashboard assigns disclosures to general categories such as “sexual assault” and “sexual harassment” that encompass broad ranges of behavior. We have included key definitions, which can be viewed on the “Data Definitions” tab, so that readers can understand what behaviors may be included in any category. You can find comprehensive information about Yale’s policies, definitions and procedures on the Policies and Definitions section of this website. Additionally, statistics specifically on SHARE usage can be found in their annual reports. The sexual assault data in this report will not correspond to Yale's annual report required under the federal Clery Act becasue this report uses a more expansive definition of sexual assault and includes disclosures from a broader geographic jurisdiction than in the Clery report.
The tabs in this Dashboard contain aggregated information about disclosures brought forward to the University during the specified reporting periods. Cases involving more than one allegation of sexual misconduct are listed only once.
