Title IX: Sexual Misconduct, Harassment & Discrimination
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal gender equity law that prohibits sex discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities that receive federal funding. Sexual discrimination, which includes sexual harassment and all forms of relationship violence and nonconsensual sexual misconduct, are prohibited under this law.
“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.”
The mission of Roberts Wesleyan College is to prepare thoughtful, spiritually mature, service-oriented people who will help transform society. In order to fulfill its mission, Roberts is committed to providing a learning, living, and working environment free from sexual discrimination.
