About Title IX

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act


The College’s Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct Policy provides for prompt, fair and effective response to reports and complaints of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault and related retaliation.

Compliance with Title IX and related College policies is everyone’s responsibility at Evergreen. The Title IX Administrator provides resources and reporting options to students, faculty, and staff to address concerns related to sexual harassment and sexual misconduct prohibited by Title IX and College policy, and works to prevent its occurrence through training and education.

Responsible Employees

Nearly all employees of The Evergreen State College are required to report information they may have about sexual harassment or sexual misconduct involving a student. Temporary hourly employees are exempt, but encouraged to report to insure a safe environment. Learn more about how to communicate and report effectively.

Employees in the Student Wellness Center are exempt from this requirement so that they can provide professional confidentiality.
