Dating violence incident reported to University
Observer Staff Report | Friday, April 1, 2016
An incident of dating violence was reported to a University administrator Tuesday, according to the Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) crime log.
The alleged crime occurred last Friday in a men’s residence hall, according to the log entry. The complaint will go through the Title IX review process.
According to du Lac, the University’s code of conduct, dating violence is defined as “physical violence or the threat of physical violence committed by a person who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with an individual.”
The existence of a relationship is determined on “factors such as the length and type of relationship and frequency of interaction between the persons involved,” du Lac states.
