How the university can help

As a University, we are committed to ensuring compliance with Title IX, a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on the sex (gender) of employees and students.

Assistance is available to those impacted by sexual harassment, sexual violence (sexual assault, intimate partner violence or stalking) or retaliation, regardless of whether any formal administrative or criminal process is initiated.
