Title IX protects against discrimination related to pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy or recovery from any of these conditions. It prohibits an institution from applying any rule related to a student’s parental, family or marital status that treats students differently based on their sex. Title IX ensures the right to take medically necessary leave and to be free of harassment, intimidation, or other discrimination because of pregnancy. Roberts Wesleyan is dedicated to creating an environment that is welcoming, accessible and inclusive for pregnant and nursing mothers.
