Title IX Compliance
Procedures for Students, Employees, and University Volunteers related to Institutional action in Cases of Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Stalking, Retaliation and Other Forms of Interpersonal Violence or Sex Discrimination.
What is Title IX?
Title IX is part of the 1972 re-authorization of the Higher Education Act and that stipulates that “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” Title IX requires all schools receiving federal financial assistance to take reasonable steps to create a safe, nondiscriminatory learning environment.
Clarke University prohibits all forms of sexual misconduct, including, but not limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, retaliation, and other forms of interpersonal violence or sex discrimination. Such conduct violates Clarke University’s values and can cause disruption to the living, learning, and work environment of students, employees, University volunteers, and other community members.
