Our Policy

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. To ensure compliance with Title IX and other federal and state civil rights laws, the university has developed policies that prohibit sexual misconduct in all of its forms. These policies and the procedures to address alleged policy violations are applicable to all complaints or reports of sexual misconduct made by or against any member of the university community. These policies and procedures apply to conduct that affects the complainant’s education or employment with the university regardless of where it occurs and regardless of the gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation of the complainant or the respondent.

HOOP Policy 59 – Prohibition of Sexual Harassment & Sexual Misconduct can be found here.
