Domestic Violence & Restraining Orders

Definitions from the City University of New York (CUNY) Policy on Domestic Violence:

For purposes of this policy, the following terms will be defined as follows.

Domestic Violence: A pattern of coercive tactics, which can include physical, psychological, sexual, economic and emotional abuse, perpetrated by one person against an adult intimate partner, with the goal of establishing and maintaining power and control over the victim.

Intimate Partner: Includes persons legally married to one another; persons formerly married to one another; persons who have a child in common, regardless of whether such persons are married or have lived together at any time; couples who live together or have lived together; or persons who are dating or who have dated in the past, including same sex couples.

Abuser: A person who perpetrates a pattern of coercive tactics which can include physical, psychological, sexual, economic, and emotional abuse against an adult intimate partner, with the goal of establishing and maintaining power and control over the victim.

Victim: The person against whom an abuser directs coercive and/or violent acts.

Reporting: Normally acts of domestic violence will be reported to the local police precinct, or law enforcement authority, where the victim resides when the violence occurs. However, there may be occasions where a victim of domestic violence will wait until he/she gets to work to report an incident for safety reasons. In cases where an act of domestic violence is reported or occurs on any Hunter Campus, Department of Public Safety officers will respond to the incident to protect the victim and maintain order. Public Safety officers will assist the victim by taking that person to the local NYPD Precinct for further investigation through the precincts Domestic Violence Officer.

In cases where a Hunter student, faculty, or staff member is a victim of domestic violence and obtains a restraining order from any court, or any state, the victim is requested to deliver a copy of the restraining order to the Administration Office of the Department of Public Safety in Room B-122, B-1 Level of the main campus West Building.
