Sexual violence and sexual misconduct are both over-arching, umbrella terms used to describe a wide range of non-consensual behaviours. 
Sexual violence is any kind of unwanted, non-consensual behaviour, touching or act of a sexual nature or harassment within or outside a relationship.   
Sexual misconduct is the term used within the context of an organisation such as the University of Sussex when an incident is considered under conduct regulations. 
For staff, this would also include any breach of the university’s Relationships Policy
