Community Safety

The United States Sports Academy (USSA) is committed to maintaining a safe and positive learning experience.  When students experience acts of sexual violence or misconduct, their sense of safety and trust is violated.  This can significantly interfere with their lives, including their educational goals.

Students are strongly encouraged to report all incidents that threaten the student’s continued well-being, safety, or security.  USSA personnel will assist the student in notifying authorities, if requested.

USSA’s Sexual Misconduct Policy has been developed to proactively create an environment in which incidents of sexual misconduct can be promptly and effectively responded to without further victimization, retaliation, and with possible remediation of its effects.

USSA’s Sexual Misconduct Policy
