Sexual and Interpersonal Violence

What it Title IX?

It's On UsTitle IX is the federal anti-discrimination law that states: “No person in the U.S. shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” (Title IX 1972 Education Amendments)

Title IX bans sex discrimination throughout our College and campus community — in all programs and activities including, but not limited to, academic programs, financial aid, student records and accounts, health and counseling services, and housing and residence life programs.

Both the Sexual and Interpersonal Violence Prevention and Response Policy and the Title IX Grievance Policy (found below) prohibit sex discrimination, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, domestic violence, dating violence and any form of interpersonal violence.

The College will work to promote an environment and collective community attitude that encourages all students, faculty, and staff to respect others, participate positively in the life of the College and act as responsible members of the greater Crouse Health community.
