Title IX and VAWA protections
The University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in the education program or activity that it operates and is required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and 34 C.F.R. Part 106 not to discriminate in such a manner.
The requirement not to discriminate in the education program or activity extends to admission and employment and inquiries about the application of Title IX and 34 C.F.R. Part 106 may be referred to the University’s Title IX Coordinator, to the Assistant Secretary of Education or both.
Individuals who believe they have experienced sex discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation in violation of the University’s Equal Opportunity, Harassment and Nondiscrimination policy should contact the following:

Sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are forms of sex discrimination, which are prohibited under Title IX and by University policy. For a complete copy of the policy or for more information, please contact the Title IX Coordinator.
Any person may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment (whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to be the victim of conduct that could constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment), in person, by mail, by telephone, or by electronic mail, using the Title IX Coordinator contact information.
The University’s Campus Safety Policies and Annual Security Report also provide additional information regarding definitions of prohibited conduct, counseling and assistance resources available and the sexual violence prevention and awareness programs available to all members of the University community.

Pregnant and Parenting Students
Since the passage of Title IX, sex discrimination - including discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, and parental status - has been prohibited. Title IX regulations state that an institution that receives federal funding must not discriminate against any student on the basis of pregnancy or pregnancy-related conditions.
If you are a pregnant or parenting student, please contact the Title IX Office if you have any questions about what you may be entitled to under Title IX.
