Title IX Office

ֱ is committed to providing a positive climate so that every student and employee feels respected and treated with dignity at all times. To achieve a safe and friendly campus, each member of the campus community must act to assure a welcoming campus that appreciates diversity, prizes civility, and respects the individual.

This webpage offers information about ֱ’s support of Title IX, a federal policy administered by the Office of Civil Rights under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Education that outlines the responsibilities of schools to ensure an experience for all students that is free from discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence. The University has developed and implemented procedures to demonstrate compliance with all federal mandates and to fulfill an obligation to preserve and protect a safe living, learning, and working environment for students, faculty, and staff.
