Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual assault.

While it is often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in all educational, extracurricular, athletic and other programs and activities at Emmanuel College. This prohibition against sex discrimination applies regardless of whether the activity is conducted on campus, off campus, in transit or if sponsored at other locations.

While compliance with the law is everyone's responsibility at the College, below you will find a list of community members who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance.
